Model homes are the first houses builders put up in a community for a reason: they’re the brochure for what’s to come! With your model homes being such an important tool to sell the homes that will be built in the neighborhood, it’s imperative theses houses put off a great first impression.

Read on for three model home staging tips to help sell the houses in your coming neighborhood faster!


1. Highlight Key Features of the Model Home


If the model home has high ceilings or beautiful crown molding, find ways to highlight those key features. For example, artwork can help draw the eye up toward the ceiling.

Or if the home has gorgeous mahogany wood floors, don’t hide them underneath rugs. Maybe implement one area rug for the living area and let the floors shine throughout the rest of the home.

2. Let the Model Home’s Light Shine


Light is a big selling point for buyers because nobody wants to live in space that is dark and dull all the time. If the model home has huge windows in the great room, let that natural light shine in. Don’t hide the windows with curtains or blinds.

If the master bedroom has huge windows and French doors that open up onto a terrace, make that the focal point of the room. Don’t clutter the space with tons of furniture to distract from the natural light.

If there is a room in the model home that is a little darker due to the floor plan, bring in lamps and use light colors such as white or cream to make the room seem brighter.




3. Make the Model Home as Inviting as Possible


At the end of the day, the point of a model home is to help the potential buyer picture him or herself living in the home. Place accessories throughout the home that are functional, cozy and appealing to the eye to make the home more inviting.
