Easy outdoor staging tips…

May 4, 2010 | Barbara's Blog

It is spring and after a long winter, buyers are ready to spend some time outside. Use this to your advantage and stage your deck, patio, balcony, sunroom and yard too.

First impressions are fundamental. If buyers are attracted by your home’s exterior, they are inspired to see more.

Create a welcoming an inviting exterior

You are trying to sell a product, a dream, a lifestyle. An attractive neat will draw people in.

Clear all clutter and debris

It seems to be logical but not always implemented. It’s great value for your property. Put away children’s toys, bikes, bins… Create an outdoor setting with some furniture.

Paint trim and windows

A great exterior accent piece is a freshly painted front door, which, when combined with a few potted plants, will create a more wonderful entranceway for prospective buyers.



Add seasonal flowersDesign2Sell, Outdoor staging

Your home must have a visual interest. Add some pizzazz by planting flower bulbs that will bloom throughout all the season. Lining walkways or retaining walls with pots of annuals can add charm and color.

Mow the lawn and trim the bushes

Yard and landscaping are very important at this period. Give trees and bushes a facelift any loose branches and shrubs.

All parts of your home’s exterior can be changed in a pleasant place to be in. For example, a tiny deck or rarely used balcony off a master bedroom could be transformed into a romantic getaway by staging it with cozy, cushioned seating and a raised fire pit. 


Our outside is a real place to live, defining outside spaces can add visual squarefootage and usable space.
