Prior to listing your house for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better 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 sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the details of your home with strategically placed furniture and decorations so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Prepping your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. Instead it can be a fun and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Curb appeal is your first chance to create a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial thoughts about your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that improve Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's friendly, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look inviting as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
