How can I get the best out of my outdoor staging?

Nothing looks better than a freshly staged outdoor area… But when you have several weeks of viewings it can be daunting to think of keeping it looking immaculate the entire time. The thought of damaging the stage before your potential buyers can see it can be a real fear, especially if you are living in the house at the time (and even more so if you have children living there as well!).

Here are some of our best tips for keeping the stage looking as best as possible on viewing day.

Keep the delicates indoors

Unless you’re getting photos taken, it’s best to keep cushions, blankets, wine glasses or any other staging items inside to prevent water damage until the day of your viewing. Simple give yourself 10 minutes before the viewing starts, so you have time to set everything up before your viewers arrive.

A bit of cleaning goes a long way!

The first thing you want to do before anyone comes to see a home you’re selling is to give it a good spring clean both inside and out. Of course, anyone in their right mind would never forget to thoroughly clean the inside of their home before selling, but the outside can often be neglected.

Cleaning up the curb-side of your house can make all the difference in the eyes of potential buyers. Leaving windows dirty and cobwebs on the porch can easily lead buyers to a first impression that you haven’t taken much care of your home, before they even walk inside.

Spring cleaning your porch can be as simple as taking a squeegee to the windows and a duster to the cobwebs, but if you’ve got the time it can also pay to give the area a good waterblast and put some extra effort in to making it look good as new.

Check for Leaks and Clean Out Gutters

If you want to go the extra mile, you can make some time to repair any leaks and clean out your gutters. This will be invaluable if you end up facing rainy weather on your viewing days, because nothing dampens a buyer’s interest like suspicious puddles of water or clogged gutters!

Keep the plants alive!

Just kidding! We use faux plants in all our stages, so you don’t have to do a single thing. They’ll keep themselves looking great all on their own.

On the day of the viewing

For those whose busy lifestyles mean they can never manage to keep on top of the daily clutter that builds up around the home, this tip is for you.

During the selling process, you could have viewers round to see your property any day of the week. This means you’ve got to keep on top of clutter. Setting your alarm 10 minutes early each day while your home is staged can give you the time you desperately need to do simple things like make the bed, reposition cushions, stack the dishwasher, and straighten up just a little. You’ll be surprised just how much you can achieve in those 10 minutes!
