Home / Home Selling Tips / LET THERE BE LIGHT!


It is essential that you give buyers the opportunity to view your home in the best light possible.

Here are some of Centre Staged Inc.’s Lighten & Brighten MUST DO’S before listing your house…

#1: Open all drapery and blinds fully (don’t just open blinds on a tilt) and remove any dated window treatments that could be distracting the buyers from the view outside.

#2: Switch on all ceiling lights, lamps and fireplace in each room before every showing. Create a warm and welcoming atmosphere by making the house feel lived in.

#3: Brighten any dark wall colours with a simple neutral beige or off-white. You will be amazed how much bigger the room feels and so will the buyer!

#4: Brighten any tired looking vanities or kitchen cupboards with a coat of off- white paint. Bathroom and kitchen renovations provide the biggest return on investment and updating certain elements are essential for a quick sale!

REMEMBER! Home Staging is not a cost. It’s an INVESTMENT!

Lightening & Brightening on average provides a 299% ROI!  (e.g. $424 cost / $1690 price increase)
