As we now progress from spring into summer can you guess what that means? It’s BUYING season! If you are looking to SELL its time to get your Champaign/Urbana home ready with these great Staging Tips from the professionals at HGTV!

 

Open those curtains!! Instant brightness adds a lot to a showing. And if it is raining, make sure to turn on all of the lights.

Drop the dark bring out the bright colors!! Botanical colors and prints give rooms a cheerful feel. I know it was a LONG winter, so rejoice the spring weather and put away your furry winter blankets and replace with flower prints (Lavender, yellow, sage green and pale blue color are particularly nice!).

Candles are a must!! Enough said.

Clear your Counters!! Put away your toaster, coffee machine, and pretty much everything else except a nice bowl of fresh fruit. Buyers can be deterred by clutter.

Clean Clean Clean….and then clean a little more! Get your scrub brush out because it is time to get your home looking squeaky clean. A home that sparkles and is decluttered portrays a home as airy and spacious.

And don’t forget to Clean your Floors and Walls!! A bucket of warm water with a few drops of mild soap and a sponge goes a long way and will clean off most wall marks and if you have some extra bad marks, grab a magic eraser cleaning pad.

Landscape!! Make the most of curb appeal! It might be time to invest in a landscaper, as a pristine yard goes a long way with potential buyers.
