5 SUMMER STAGING TIPS THAT WILL AMPLIFY YOUR HOME LISTING
Each season has its own set of advantages and disadvantages when it comes to selling your home. Our current real estate market is hotter than the weather outside. Even so, knowing how to prepare and position your home is important for a quick and beneficial sale.
Here are five of our top summer staging tips for successfully selling your home.
1. Keep it Cool as a Cucumber
No one will want to walk through your home if it’s as hot inside as the temperature outside. Assuming your home does have central air, get it inspected before putting the home on the market. An HVAC breakdown never bodes well during the peak showing season. Keep the thermostat around 70 degrees all the time to cool and dehumidify your home. Now’s not the time to skimp on the energy bills.
Bonus Tip: If your home doesn’t have central air conditioning, consider keeping it off the market until the fall. Even if you have window units, most are loud and aren’t able to do the job when the thermometer is pushing close to 100 degrees. Besides, fall is prime house hunting season in WNC.
2. Keep the Entryway Squeaky Clean
A nice front door makes a great first impression, but keeping one clean takes extra effort during the summer pollen season. Thoroughly clean all of your windows inside and out before putting your home on the market. Then check the windows periodically to ensure they remain crystal clear. If needed, make sure the paint is fresh (not faded) and any chips or scrapes are fixed on trim, railings, and decks. Check caulk around windows and doors, and clear gutters and downspouts of debris.
3. Show that the Grass is Always Greener…
High water costs and summertime water bans can make green grass harder to come by during the scorching summer months. However, keeping your front landscaping looking good maximizes curb appeal. If you have to manage water, skip the backyard. If all the backyards on the street are brown, buyers will know the problem isn’t with your property. Don’t forget to add a fresh-looking potted plant at the front door and keep the front porch and walkway clear of bugs and debris. Your goal should be to make the entrance to your home as welcoming as possible for all potential buyers.
Bonus Tip: If you do have prime garden space, don’t neglect it. Keep your garden under control, weeded, and harvest ready. If you opted not to plant this season, place a few potted plants around the beds to show their potential.
4. Set the Mood with a Refreshing Beverage
Use fresh flowers in as many places throughout the house as you can. Set out a pitcher of tea or lemonade if possible just before buyers arrive. If you’re out of town on vacation, ask your listing agent to help make sure your home looks fresh, cheery, and refreshing. This strategy is also helpful for listing photos. Don’t underestimate the visual power of a nice clear counter with a pitcher of fresh-squeezed lemonade and two chilled glasses.
Bonus Tip: Speaking of setting the scene, don’t forget about any outdoor entertainment areas. If you have an outdoor space, stage it to look like it’s ready for entertaining. Keep your outdoor furniture clean and put cushions on the chairs.
5. Go Away
Even though it’s a lot harder during school vacation, all occupants—including kids—must clear out every time prospective buyers come by. It’s important to give the buyers and their agent free rein of the house. Many home shoppers feel very uncomfortable looking at a home if the seller is present. Uncomfortable prospects rarely become buyers. Find a local spot where you can hang out for an hour or two at a time. Local coffee shops work well, or consider a park or library if the kids are with you!

Pedestal sinks are a big hit with buyers!
- They show off square footage in small bathrooms beautifully. First, your old vanity has to go. Next, just hook up your new sink, and your bathroom will have dramatic appeal that brings in big bucks. Plus, buyers will see how much floor space your bathroom has.
Avoid dated tile by painting!
- Bathrooms sell houses, but dated tile in a bathroom doesn't.
A low-cost alternative to replacing the tile is to use paint. First coat the tiles with a high-adhesion primer. Next, brush on a special ceramic epoxy covering. For a fraction of the cost of new tile, you will have an up-to-date bathroom that brings in big bucks.
