Whether you are moving into a new property or saying goodbye to an old one you should stage your cottage before you list. Much like a regular residential property, staging helps improve your listing and can raise your sale price up to 10%. Your future buyers might also buy some of your furniture. So, we recommend you show it off the best you can. Here are 5 staging tips to do before you list your cottage.
- De-Clutter Everything
- Maintain The Outdoor and Waterfront Area
- Turn Your Kitchen And Dining Area Into An Entertaining Space
- Make The Bathrooms and Bedrooms Fit For A Hotel
As mentioned above some buyers will purchase some of your furniture to avoid the shipping and delivery hassle to remote locations. If you are looking to leave the beds behind style the bedrooms as if they were fit for a hotel. Minimize the amount of furniture in the room and leave books or magazines on the nightstand. In the bathroom hang clean towels and place a fresh bar of soap. Remember to remove all toothbrushes, shower bottles and toilet plungers.
These are quick and easy tips to help you create the illusion of a spotless, timeless and buyer-friendly cottage. If you can go above and beyond talk your real estate agent about hiring a professional home stager to give you more ideas on how to highlight your cottage’s best features.
