Home Staging Tips to Improve your Rental Home’s Appeal
Curb appeal improvements can definitely increase the value of your home. But it is the quality of your staged listings that will help your home stand out in the eyes of renters. These home staging tips will help you create a beautiful, organized home that appeals to potential renters. Staging your home is just one way to Improve your Rental Home’s Appeal.
A mirror not only adds some style to a space, but its reflective quality can also open up a room. It makes the room brighter and seem less cramped.
Replace old and heavy drapes with something more modern and breezy. Select floor-length curtains and hang them near the ceiling to make the room appear taller.
Use crisp, white towels
To stage your bathroom, go with monochromatic hues. Unlike colored towels that can appear dingy and add heavy, white towels feel fresh and clean.
Avoid a rug that’s too small for a living room. The front legs of the couch or chairs should touch the rug. The right-sized rug in a complementary style to the room will make the space look larger and feel more “pulled together.”
Deep clean your home
No prospective tenant wants to walk into a house with a dirty bathroom or scuffed-up walls. Take some time to clean every room in your home to make it look fresh and inviting.
Don’t forget landscaping
Another area that requires more attention is the lawn. It’s a potential tenant’s first impression of your house so it is important to keep your lawn neat and desirable. Apply awn treatment, aerate and fertilize the lawn, prune shrubs and branches and ensure the sprinkler system is functioning optimally.
Bottom line: Tenants want to live in homes that are attractive with good furniture and finishes. Clean out the flower beds, and trim shrubs, lawns and low-hanging tree branches. Energy-efficient appliances and nice wood flooring go a long way to giving a good first impression. If possible, make upgrades in specific areas like bathrooms and kitchen.
