When staging a home for sale, remember that a buyers first impressions are of the yard, home and porch from the outside…Staging the out of doors is primary…le’ts usher these buyers into your home purposefully and successfully by mindfully staging it…First and foremost, it doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive. I remain a true believer in less is more, and use what you got to make it work. The point of staging is to give prospective buyers a sense of scale (can I fit my table and chairs there?); to illustrate possibilities (oh, a dining area, a sitting area, a garden); and to sell the space not the stuff (wow, that’s a big yard, the deck is nice…). So hint at what you can’t show. If it’s too early for potted plants in the spring, a clean and empty pot might hint at what’s to come. Winter backyards can look rather bleak. Keep your outdoor furniture set up to remind buyers of greener days. Of course a pop of color can really wow the buyer from the inside out…make sure the yard looks great from inside the home as well.
