Don't forget that your home needs special staging attention for summertime. After all, here at the Lake, we're selling the Lake living experience! If you're trying to sell your home at the Lake of the Ozarks this summer, don't forget these important staging tips.


Bring on the Bright Colors
Fall & winter color schemes are traditionally dark and subdued. When spring and summer hits, buyers are looking forward to warm weather and putting the need for warmth and coziness behind them. As you stage your home for the summer, try to cultivate a bright, cheery environment that will make buyers excited to see what's in store.

Add Some Liveliness to Your Front Porch
Nothing says "summer" like bright bold beautiful flowers on your front porch! Potted flowers or greenery are a key way to boost your home's curb appeal in the summertime. Don't forget to prune the flowers/bushes in any existing flower beds and weed out the unwanted plants.

Let In The Light
Summertime is bright, warm, and cheery. It's time to open your curtains and blinds and let in the light! Don't forget to turn on all the lights every time you leave the house so buyers can come for a showing, too.

Slim Down Your Closets
Let us let you in on a little secret: everyone wants more storage. Homes with big closets and extra storage space almost always sell more quickly than homes with smaller storage spaces. Remove out of season clothes from your closets so they seem emptier (and, consequently, bigger).

Bring Summer Inside
Flowers on your front porch are great, but don't forget to bring some of that flower power inside! Fresh flowers on your counters or tables are a wonderful staging tool for showings. If you don't want to constantly replace real flowers, you can set out some silk flowers to get the same effect.

It's Not too Late to Spring Clean
Here's another secret: no one wants to buy a dirty home. Cleaning is an essential part of home staging in every season, but it is especially crucial during the busy season of real estate. Buyers are ready to shop homes and they want to see the potential your home has in its best form - and that starts with YOU spring cleaning your home, even if it's technically summer.


Happy Staging!
Summer is a bright and happy season that draws potential buyers in from all over the place who are looking for that home that speaks to their soul. Don't be afraid to have some fun with your staging! The key is to keep your house looking fresh, clean, and cheery.
