How to Stage Your Home for Each Season

While staging a home might seem like a simple process, there are many details which go into creating the perfect image for potential buyers. One of these details is ensuring that your home is staged according to the current season. While you might like your home to always feel like a beach paradise, this will not help you sell your month during the grueling winter months. In order to help you understand this concept, below are important ways to stage your home according to each of the four seasons.

1. Spring
Spring, for many reasons, is often considered the most exciting time of the year. While people are obviously glad to be exiting the cold grip of winter, spring also presents the opportunity to get outside and do countless things, such as look for a new home. In order to take advantage of this excitement, be sure to allow ambient sunlight to enter your home through open windows. In addition, consider using pastel colors in terms of your decorations and furniture. While you do not have to go out and purchase completely new furniture just to sell your home, consider changing curtains and carpets which do not seem to match the spring season.

2. Summer
While many people are excited for the onset of spring, this excitement tends to fade as summer draws closer. While spring weather is a nice change of pace compared to winter, the immense heat in the summer tends to make people uncomfortable when operating outside. In order to make your home seem like the perfect oasis, it is important to keep your air conditioning working on high during staging. People entering your home will be immediately met with relief, making their staging experience much more productive. If the outside areas of your home are going to be shown, be sure to provide adequate shade in the form of an umbrella or inexpensive awning.

3. Autumn
People tend to like the transition seasons the most, which makes selling a home during spring and autumn fairly easy. While spring represents the opportunity to welcome people in with lighter colors, in autumn it is important to key in on darker shades of yellow, orange, and red. People love to watch the leaves turn colors, so your home is the perfect place to emulate this experience. In addition to paying attention to colors, consider ways you can make your home seem cozy to potential buyers. This will be important as the weather begins to get colder during the later weeks of autumn.

4. Winter
Winter is an interesting time of the year to stage your home. While people generally are not fans of the cold weather and unexpected precipitation, such as sleet or snow, your home can represent the perfect escape from the elements. Like autumn, making your home seem cozy and welcoming is the perfect way to interest potential buyers. Be sure to find key furniture accessories, such as throw pillows, afghan blankets, and anything else which will seem comfortable to your group of buyers. In addition, be sure to utilize your fireplace if your home is equipped with one. The toasty flames from a gas range can be the difference between a buyer moving forward with your home or leaving you out in the cold.

Stress is one of the largest concerns when selling a home. Staging, managing finances and documents, and simultaneously juggling the rest of your life can be completely draining. However, one thing is certain about selling your home: it’s a lot easier when you have a solid real estate agent to handle it. Remember, No-One Works Harder to Sell your Home more than Joe!
