Atlanta real estate staging

Keep it tidy.

Staging is all about helping buyers see potential in your home, helping them visualize themselves living there, raising their kids, and entertaining friends and family. You want to make it as easy as possible for them to do that, so first things first: Make sure your yard is cleaned up and well-maintained.

That doesn’t mean you need to drop a bunch of money on landscaping, but rather that you should make sure the yard you have is in the best condition possible. Clean up plant debris and leaves left over from the fall and winter; get rid of weeds; put down new mulch or pinestraw; keep the grass trimmed and edged; pressure wash the deck, patio, or pool area.

Add some color.

Summer annuals are an inexpensive way to dress up your backyard landscaping and add a splash of color. Begonias, impatiens, geraniums, and marigolds are all good choices. Sticking with just one or two types of flowers in the same color scheme is a good strategy. A border of flowers in front of existing shrubs is classic, but you can also spruce up your space with a few potted plants here and there on the back porch or patio. Just remember to keep it simple and avoid clutter.

Play up your yard’s special features.

If you have a patio, set up a little dining area with a table, chairs, and a lantern for ambiance. Got a pool? Make sure it’s clean and pristine. Even a particularly nice and shady tree can be turned into an amenity by placing a chair and small table beneath it, perfect for sipping iced tea on a summer afternoon.
