Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and photos so that your home feels more spacious and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. Instead it can be a fun and creative project. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your property. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll see that your house spends fewer months on the market after listing:
Start with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of fixes that build up sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or busy areas make your home look less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know exactly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Potential buyers want a house that seems comfortable. Anything that could be "loud" should be put away so that your home will garner mass appeal to buyers.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a pleasing aroma flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
