The Coal Harbour real estate market continues to be a hot market as we enter into the fall season. A brisk walk through the spectacular streets, lined with the stunning multi-coloured trees is just one of the reasons fall is such a spectacular time of year in this coveted neighbourhood. If you have been thinking about putting your condo up for sale to take advantage of this market, here are some staging tips that will attract a wide range of buyers and help you get top dollar for your Coal Harbour condo.
Bring the Colours Inside
Everywhere the green leaves of summer turn brilliant yellows, oranges and reds in this spectacular season. This kaleidoscope of colours is all around us, so why not bring these colours into your condo when you are staging it?
Some great staging ideas that will make your home feel warmer and more inviting are:
- Place red, yellow and orange flowers in your vase. Flowers such as sunflowers, marigolds or strawflowers are all excellent choices.
- Place throw pillows or blankets that match the colours of your autumn bouquet to highlight the various rooms with this autumn ambiance.
- Use decorations such as fall themed centerpieces for your dining room table or dried corn wreathes to welcome buyers and set the open house theme.
Use Fall Foods
Fall colours are a definite must and will make your home that much more appealing to a potential buyer, but what about using smells to further set that fall tone?
Here’s the deal:
Comfort food and the fall season go hand in hand so why not bring some of those welcoming scents into your home for your next open house?
Scented candles are a great way to bring back memories and set the stage for potential future Thanksgiving dinners. I recommend apple or pumpkin spice, cinnamon, cranberry or ginger spiced candles. It is important to keep in mind that you do not want to overpower the room or house, just to create a warm atmosphere.
Keep it Simple
A properly staged home is a home that will attract a host of potential buyers and sell quickly. The most important piece of advice we recommend is that you keep your staging to a minimum to showcase the open floor space as well as the surrounding beauty of Coal Harbour.
Overcrowded homes, no matter how well intentioned they are, can be a real detractor for any interested party and may slow the sale of your home.
Keep your holiday decorations and scents to a minimum and always keep personal items tucked away. You want to highlight and accent your home with fall tones, not decorate and overpower.
