Tips For Staging Your Midtown Nashville Home To Sell

Beautiful staged living room interior in new luxury home with view of kitchen. Home interior with hardwood floors and open floorplan showing dining room, kitchen, and living room. Has high vaulted ceilings.Midtown Nashville is one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods, but even homes in sought-after places need to be as appealing as possible when you decide to place them on the market. This is where staging comes in. Whether you live in a gorgeous high-rise condo or a charming historic bungalow, you want your Midtown Nashville home to provide an excellent first impression when potential buyers stop by. Take a look at these staging tips to help you get started.

  1. Declutter And Remove About Two-Thirds of Your Stuff

    The less personal stuff in the home when you try to sell it, the better. You want potential buyers to see it as their own. You also want to remove clutter on counters, floors, cabinets, and closets so that they can see how spacious these spots are.

  2. Add Light

    No one wants to live in a dark home. Start by opening up the curtains and blinds and letting the natural light of the sun inside. If your rooms are still dark, considering adding a few nice lamps.

  3. Add Some Life

    You want most of your living things out of the house when potential buyers stop by — like the kids and the pets — but adding some fresh flowers and plants can freshen things up.

  4. Freshen The Air

    Get rid of or clean anything that smells, such as trash cans, litter boxes, and dirty clothes hampers. Light some candles (stick to fresh scents that do not overpower, such as citrus) or bake some cookies to make the home’s scent more appealing.

  5. Do Some Deep Cleaning

    You may think you need to paint or even remodel, but sometimes a good deep clean can make all the difference in the world. Wash your windows, have the carpets cleaned, pressure wash the driveway and be sure to scrub every inch of your bathroom. Dirty bathrooms are a huge turnoff.

  6. Keep Up The Yard

    If you live in a single-family home, mow your grass, remove debris and dead plants, scoop up the dog’s messes and plant a few flowers. If you live in a condo, check with your HOA before making any major changes to the outside of your home.

  7. Make Your Master Bedroom Appealing To Both Sexes

    If your room is ultra-feminine with floral prints everywhere, consider switching out the comforter and curtains for neutral solid colors that appeal to everyone.
