If you need more information about home staging to sell your home quickly in Sherman Oaks, contact me and I'll use my Sherman Oaks, California expertise for the fastest ways to sell your house.
As you are placing your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, choose a well-planned home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your house like a PR firm would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating an image draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house a more desirable listing on the market.
Preparing your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a fun and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your house. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.Knowing this helps us to decide what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance your home's features.
I'll help you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure that your house is appealing and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can try borrowing furniture. You want your home to look homey as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasant aroma circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
