Prior to placing your residence on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. And you should certainly think about professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and photos so that your home appears bigger and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Prepping your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your home. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home'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 suggest fixes that build up market appeal.
I'll help you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or dirty spots make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure your home is likable and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and assure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
