Before you put your house on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and artwork so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. Instead it can be an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your home. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your house spends fewer months on the market after listing:
Begin with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What great features seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves enjoying game night in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your property.
I'll advise you take away items that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and assure a pleasing aroma flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
