How to stage your home in Spain for a viewing

Stage your home for a viewing is very important for purchasing clients, there are a lot of ways to show off your property and below are the top three steps you can take to maximize viewings on your property.

Declutter

The first step on your home staging journey is to declutter your home as much as possible.

This is obviously more difficult if you are currently living in the house. There are however small things you can do that will take no more than 15 minutes.

For example, removing items like fly swats, ashtrays and used mugs from tables, clearing the kitchen work surfaces, emptying any exposed bins, tidying up any pool/garden equipment (where applicable) from the outside areas, storing any brooms, mops and other cleaning supplies can all help to make your home more attractive to the client. First impressions are so important on viewings.

Stage

Now, this is where you can get creative. We believe that when you purchase a property in our region you are buying so much more than a house, you are buying the lifestyle that that property can give you.

You as a vendor can help a prospective purchaser envision what their life could be like here. Things like laying out a bowl of citrus fruits on the table showing off the local produce, putting out a bottle of wine and couple of glasses out, offering a glass of iced water on arrival all aid a buyer to feel at home.

Try to make the viewing experience as memorable as possible. Make sure your property is as sunny as possible when the clients arrive. This means opening all the blinds/shutters and turning on all light sources.

You

You are the biggest selling point of your house. It’s important for clients to see why you fell in love with your property.

Where is your favourite spot to spend time? Think about this and purposely sit there during a viewing.

If the clients are interested in your property and have any specific questions, they will come to you and when they do they’ll be sat in the very best place to admire the view/pool area/spacious living room etc.  See what I’m getting at?

Give the clients space, let them feel their own way around the property so the viewing is as relaxed and informal as possible.

We believe that by incorporating these three things into your viewing preparations, you will create a greater lasting first impression.

    Very wise advice. I very much agree with most of it.
    The last one, of the owner being at home, when the home is being shown, is the one , I’m having second thoughts. Here in the United States it is advised for the owner not to be home, so the prospective buyers are able to have a most relaxed experience and also feeling they can take as long as they want inspecting the property. If they have questions about something, they can always ask their real estate agent, who usually stays outside the property. To make a point on calling attention to the best part of the home, I use brighter, colorful materials, or a fountain with running water. There are lots of things that can be done, to make sure those buyers don’t leave without first discovering the best corner and making it unforgettable and their favorite memory of a home.

      I might agree with that. I am most likely to put my foot in it, if on-site showing prospective purchasers around.
