Staging a home means it will look its best when potential buyers tour the property. It is important to stage not only the interior, but the exterior of your home, including liferoom patio space. Staging is a process for making the area look perfect images, as well as homes in newspapers or on television. The proper cleaning and other preparation can make a difference in how much money potential buyers offer for the property.
Sweep away any debris on your liferoom patio deck, concrete or other floor. Repeat this about an hour before the potential buyers come to make sure there are no leaves or other debris in the area. Press wash patio decks if necessary to clear any stains or debris. Spot wood deck with a neutral translucent or clear stain. Paint or refurbish any outdoor furniture that needs a new look. This is a cheap procedure that helps make the backyard area look inviting and comfortable, rather than bad or worn. Another idea is to turn the chair pillows if they are pale or worn or buy new pillows.
Invest in three or four pot plants to put on your patio. This gives the outdoor cafe a popular touch. The potential homeowners will be able to imagine sitting outside on a nice evening enjoying the fresh air. Re-SOD lawn or plant grass seed in bare areas if needed. Place a pot plant with flowers on the patio table to add color and a cozy atmosphere. If you sell your home during the winter months, add potted silk greenery to the table.
