Tips for Staging Your Yard for an Open House

If you are planning to sell or rent your home, scheduling an open house is a good way to bring prospective buyers or renters. This gives you a chance to showcase your home to many different people at one time and get the best offer. “Staging” is often used in the real estate industry to create an environment that looks inviting. This is true of inside of the home, but should also be done outside, both in the front and back of the home. Here are some tips to make a crucial good impression at your open house with staging for your yard.

Curb Appeal

The first impression of your home starts at the street view. Create curb appeal by ensuring your front yard is tidy, well-maintained and attractive. Have a landscaper mow, edge and complete maintenance on both the front and backyard. You can add some color and a “homey” feel with flower pots on the front porch or doorstep.

Pressure Wash the Walks, Patio, Driveway and Pool Deck

Make sure all paved surfaces are clean. Sweep, pressure wash and clean all surfaces. Many landscapers can provide this service for you, saving you time.

Staging for Your Patio or Deck

The outdoor area in the backyard is an important selling point. Stage the outdoor living area with some patio furniture, plants around the perimeter and other personal touches that will help attendees to your open house envision enjoying your home.

The yard and outdoor spaces at your home can have a big impression when you are showing it to potential buyers and renters. Make sure you spend some time on yard maintenance and add a few personalized upgrades to help you make the most of your open house.
