Before you list your real estate for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your property like a manager would do for a famous politician. Just like creating an image attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Staging your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. Instead it can be an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your property. Start with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your home sits fewer weeks on the market after listing:
First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight your house's features.
I'll tell you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and ensure a pleasing scent circulates from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
