Start on the Outside
Create curb appeal
Drive up to your property and ask yourself, how does it really look? Are there any hanging shutters or missing shingles? Is your siding dirty or in need of new paint? Is your garage door dented? Potential tenants need to be impressed by your property's exterior or they may not even step inside!
Welcome potential tenants inside
Make your property as inviting to potential tenants as possible. Ensure all walkways are clear of leaves, snow, and ice. Spend some time on your front porch, perhaps painting your door, replacing the numbers, or adding a welcome mat or outdoor chair.
Work the landscaping
Make sure your property looks beautiful! Mow the lawn, trim the hedges and any overhanging branches, and clear any fallen sticks or leaves from the grass. If the season is right, you might consider planting some bright flowers or even adding some decorative fencing.
Do a Little Decoration
The first step to staging is to tone down your personal decorations a bit. The goal is to make it easy for potential tenants to visualize their lives, belongings, and decorations at your property. To do that, you've got to remove all your personal touches, like bright or bold colors, family photos, and other unique decor. Keep colors and themes simple and neutral.
Lighten up... your rooms
A little light can go a long way to making rooms seem bigger and, well, brighter. Not too many potential tenants are looking for a dark, depressing home. Open as many windows as possible to let in the natural light. You may consider upping wattage in rooms that don't get a lot of sunlight, or perhaps adding more lights.
Add some seasonal decor
Spring and summer are easy times to decorate—all you've got to do is bring in some fresh blooms for an added splash of color. Holidays can be quite successful, too, as long as you remember to keep any and all decor neutral and simple. Light potpourri or soft-scented candles can also add some inviting aromas.
