5 Selling Tips for Staging Your Home

The housing market has reached a hot point with the large increase in property prices and all-time strong demand. However, this may not last forever as the Vancouver real estate market is expected to cool down next year. The decline of prices will inevitably affect the aspiring home sellers. If you are planning to list your property, you may need to hurry up and take advantage of the favourable housing conditions.


The right timing is essential in the housing sector. It is difficult and inconvenient to show houses in the winter. December, January and August are traditionally the slowest months for the real estate market in Kitsilano. On the other hand, February, March, April and September is the best period to list a house. During these months the buyers are more motivated and prepare for the spring and fall markets.



When selling a home, it all comes down to one thing. You need to convince the buyers that your property is worth every penny of the price. That is why it is essential to show your home in the best possible light. These house staging tips will help you make your place look welcoming and appealing to potential homebuyers. 

  1. 1.      Depersonalize  and De-clutter

Your primary goal is to help buyers picture themselves living in your house. With your family photos and children’s artwork on the fridge this can be hard. Before the open house day, remove any quirky decorations and personal items. This is a great time for cleaning the unnecessary. Get rid of additional furniture and appliances that don’t add up to the decor. Your house will appear more spacious and you will have less to move.

  1. 2.      Update Your Home

Repair all cracks, broken appliances, leaks and burnt out lights. Not all home buyers will appreciate the patterned wallpaper or the bright hues on your wall. If you have experimented with bold colours around your house, you may need to replace them with neutrals.

  1. 3.      Clean, clean, clean!

Skipping domestic cleaning may play a bad joke on you. It is the look of your home that sells. Be sure that your property is immaculate by thoroughly cleaning not only the surfaces, but also inside your cupboards. Get into every nook and cranny and remove the dirt and grime. House cleaning is the cheapest way to improve the appearance of your place.

  1. 4.      Improve Your Set-up

When you are done with the cleaning, you can pay special attention to the set-up of your home. See whether the furniture arrangement is working well in your room or you need to make some improvements. Consider factors like scale and proportion. Anything that looks awkward has to go.

  1. 5.      Style Up Your Decor

Add some finishing touches with gorgeous accessories and details. A bouquet of fresh flowers in the living room and crispy white towels in the bathroom will make your place aesthetically pleasing.
