When you are trying to sell your Edmonton Real Estate staging the Garden and lawn area is just as important as staging the inside of the home. Buyers will want to be able to imagine how they will use all the space that the home has to offer, including the Yard. However, some buyers cannot imagine very well and need to see the home and yard staged in order to imagine themselves living there. Just like staging the House will make buyers want to consider living in the house staging the yard and garden areas will make buyers feel like the house is the one they have been waiting for. Here are some expert tips from home stagers to help you make the outside of the house look great as well as the inside: Clean It Up Just like you should have the house professionally cleaned before an open house you should make sure that the yard has been professionally serviced before an open house. Mow the lawn. Have bushes and hedges trimmed. Have any garden areas weeded. Replace the mulch around flower beds or on garden paths. Add a few decorative planters. Pick up any sticks or branches in the yard. Make sure that the yard looks inviting and well kept. Amplify the Existing Features The yard and garden areas can add a lot to the feel of the home. If the home is a small cottage type house a lovely garden with a trellis, a small bird bath, and rustic benches here and there can really sell the idea of a delightful cottage to homebuyers. Or if the house is a big sprawling new modern home a yard with huge sprays of bright colorful flowers can amplify the existing feel of the house. Spend a little bit of adding plants or taking away features to make sure that the yard is in keeping with the rest of the house. Freshen Up the Paths and Walkways Buyers may not consciously notice the paths and walkways around the home but subconsciously they will be aware of dirty or unkempt paths. If the paths are made of mulch or wood chips get fresh mulch or wood chips laid down just before the open house. Sweep off concrete walkways. Make sure that flagstones have no cracks and are swept off. Take the time to make the walkways and pathways look as inviting as possible. You can also add benches or seats along paths in the garden or yard to make it more inviting for people to walk out there and sit down. The more time they spend on the property the more likely they are to want to make an offer. Also, don’t forget lighting. Add solar lights along pathways and walkways to make them safer and more inviting.
