Before you put your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and photos so that your home feels more spacious and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Preparing your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a fun and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll help you eliminate things that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy spaces make your home seem smaller and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a property that seems comfortable. Items that could be "offensive" should get moved out so that your house will impress buyers at the open house.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a nice fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
