Prior to putting your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: expert home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a well-planned home staging strategy.
Staging your house in Sherman Oaks is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to envision themselves living and lounging in your house. You want them to see your present home as their future house.
Making ready your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they step foot into your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial perception of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend adjustments that build up market appeal.
I'll advise you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers want a home that draws them in with charm. Items that could be uninviting should go into storage in order for your house to have likability to buyers.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they close on your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and assure a delightful aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
