We know that home staging leads to less time spent on the market, but sometimes it can be difficult to stage a home, especially when you have kids! We love how our clients carefully staged their home to include the kids because 40% of families in the United States have children so rather than hide that they are there, include them! Check out these tips to help stage your home perfectly even with all the toys and kid items.
Firstly, try to declutter as much as possible. This can be a challenge with kids, but it’s important to make sure that your home looks as tidy and organized as possible. Consider getting rid of any toys or items that your kids have outgrown or no longer use. You can also invest in some storage solutions to help keep your home looking neat and tidy.
Secondly, try to neutralize your home as much as possible. This means removing any overly personalized decor or items that might be distracting to potential buyers. You want to create a blank canvas that buyers can envision themselves living in. This can be a challenge with kids, but try to minimize any bright or bold colors, and opt for more neutral tones instead. We love the neutral bedding in this room and neutral walls, nothing too flashy.
Finally, make sure that your home is clean and well-maintained. This means keeping up with regular cleaning and maintenance tasks, such as vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down surfaces. You may also want to consider hiring a professional cleaning service to give your home a deep clean before any showings or open houses. Keeping a home clean makes a big difference, make sure the snacks are put away, crumbs are cleaning up, and toys are neatly organized.
In short, staging your home with kids can be a challenge, but it’s definitely possible. By decluttering, neutralizing, and keeping your home clean and well-maintained, you can create a welcoming and attractive space that will appeal to potential buyers. Ready to list your home? Give us a call today!
