How To Get Top Dollar for Your Miami Beach Home

Written by Posted On Tuesday, 07 April 2015 09:52

Staging 101 will be one way to get top dollar for your Miami Beach home if you are thinking about selling in today’s market. The key is to do everything possible in advance to listing and staging is one way to accomplish this task and the best thing is, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Although the Miami Beach real estate market is good for sellers today, staging the property correctly is still critical.

Two important parts of staging your Miami Beach Home are:

  • The amount of lights
  • Interior colors

Bright, well-lit homes seem more spacious and more inviting. During showings, all the curtains should be open, and all of the lamps should be on, even during the day.

The photos below are an excellent example of a unit with nice bright colors and lots of lights. Of course, the professional photography helped too. This property sold for a top price.

I cannot tell you many times I have taken our buyers to a property, and it was shown with curtains closed, no lights on and no ambiance. Showing agents just open the doors and stand aside. It’s very important to make sure a property is “set” in advance to a buyer looking at it. Lights need to be on, curtains open, music (if possible) and nice smells. Staged bright, open and inviting.

First impressions are everything.  The showing agents should arrive little earlier and make sure everything is open and on.

It is also important to light up closets, stairways or hallways which are something many people forget.

Another important point is to make sure that the paint color is appealing; you want a color combination of warmth with neutrality. Warm colors are inviting because they feel pleasant and give an area of more space. Any dark, painted room should be repainted with natural, warm and bright colors.

Light and bright colors are so basic, but it makes a huge difference.
