Prior to listing your home for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your home quickly, consider a well-planned approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a PR firm would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Preparing your home to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your home's sale. Use these home staging tricks to get you started:
Curb appeal is your best chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial thoughts about your home and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Knowing this assists us in determining what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of fixes that improve sales appeal.
I'll tell you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or busy spaces make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a house that invites them inside. Anything that could be "loud" should get moved out so that your home will impress buyers while on the market.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
