In my decorating article last week, High Point Market-Spring 2017 Highlights, I wrote about the furniture industry looking forward to a large boom in millennial furniture purchases in the upcoming years. As reported by Realtormag, a recent Fannie Mae Economic report stated, “Millennials’ accelerated rate of departure from their parents’ homes bodes well for housing demand.” With the market primed to sell your home, now may be a fantastic time if you are planning a move.

“I wanted to let you know how excited I am about my new adventure in Redesign, Home Staging, and custom window treatments.

Last week’s class was the most intense, challenging, yet invigorating and motivating experience I have had in the past 30 years.

12 Item Checklist for Outdoor Staging

Beautiful YardAre you planning to sell your home soon? If so, you will want to take a good look at the outside of your home and be sure that it presents as nicely as possible for a potential buyer. The majority of buyers will first view your home online which means you will want quality photos done after you have prepared the outside of your home. Next, if the potential buyer lives locally, they will do a drive-by of your home.  You want to make sure the exterior of your home entices the buyer so much she calls for an appointment to see the rest of your home!

Let’s go over a 12 item checklist of must-dos to get you started on your exterior:

  1. Clean your entryway of all debris.
  2. Check your porch light(s); it’s the easiest thing to change out and offer a fresh look.
  3. Paint your front door, click here for instructions on the best techniques. If your house has shutters, do they need a new coat of paint as well? Keep in mind that your front door and shutter paint color do not have to match, but they should complement each other and go with the style of your home (and observe any Homeowners’ Association rules that may apply.)
  4. Do you need new hardware on your front door? If you plan to paint your door, this is a perfect time to remove and replace any hardware.
  5. Add a spotlight to illuminate a walkway, or add a featured focal point.
  6. Remove all toys, garden waste, etc.
  7. Plant beautiful seasonal flowers and mulch your beds.
  8. Trim your bushes and trees.
  9. Have your house and sidewalks power There should be no signs of mold!
  10. Seal your driveway.
  11. Add a new and inviting solid black Welcome mat.
  12. Add vibrant colored (ensure that they can be seen from the roadway) flowers to your entryway.

Do you know what the three top most desirable outdoor elements are for potential buyers? According to the 2015 American Society of Landscape Survey out of 581 respondents the top three most popular outdoor design elements include:

  • Fire pits / fireplaces – 78.0%
  • Lighting – 72.0%
  • Grills – 63.0%

What significance does this have? If you have any of the elements mentioned above, you will want to feature them! For example, if you have an outdoor fire pit, before showing your home arrange chairs around the fireplace or pit and display with colorful pillows that make the potential homeowner look at it and say, “Wow, I really like that!”
