Prior to placing your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Staging your house in Sherman Oaks is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to see themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current home as their next house.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's a fun and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What wonderful features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that enhance market appeal.
I'll suggest that you get rid of things that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a house that brings them inside. Decor that could be unsightly should be removed so that your home will have general appeal at the open house.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a pleasant scent flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
