When you’re trying to attract Edmonton summer buyers one of the best things that you can do is show off a home’s outdoor living space. Buyers that are looking for homes in the summer want to be able to enjoy the great summer weather and entertain friends and family outside as well as inside. Staging the outdoor space is just as important as staging the inside of the home. And great outdoor space can sometimes get a buyer interested in a home even if the inside isn’t exactly what they wanted. So when you’re selling homes during the summer season here are the best staging tips for yards, gardens, lawns and outdoor spaces:
Show Buyers the Potential of The Space
A lot of homebuyers don’t really know what they’re looking at when it comes to outdoor space. They might see a patio or a deck or a big lawn and think it’s nice but they won’t be able to visualize how they could use that space for everyday living. That’s where great staging comes in. Great staging will show potential buyers how many ways they could enjoy that outdoor space.
So, if the home has a deck make sure that the deck is staged for family parties and outdoor living. Use comfy outdoor sofas and chairs gathered around a beautifully set outdoor table to make it easier for buyers to see themselves hosting dinner parties on the deck. If the home has a cement patio make that space more attractive with an outdoor rug, a chimney or firepit, and a beautiful little bistro set so that buyers can see themselves sitting outside at night in front of a fire with some wine. Create a scene that shows off the potential of the space.
If you’re trying to sell a large family home then create a play space in the yard with a volleyball net or soccer goals so that parents could see their kids playing in the yard. Carefully stage swings and toys so that they look tidy but also show the potential buyers how much fun their kids could have playing in that space all summer.
Light It Up
Outdoor lighting is important for showing off an outdoor space. Simple white lights are always attractive. Or go for something fun and use paper Chinese lanterns to make space look more festive. Make sure that the lights are lit when buyers tour the home so that they can see the beauty of the outdoor space and imagine all the time they would spend in the home’s outdoor space as well as the indoor space. Fountains and fire pits are also great items to add to outdoor staging to attract buyers.
