Staging your home in Lexington is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to envision themselves living and lounging in your house. You want them to see your current house as their next house.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your home's sale. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed 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.
Can buyers see themselves watching a movie in your living space, relaxing in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll advise you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy areas make your home look smaller and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a residence that charms them. Decor that could be "loud" should be put away so that your home will impress buyers to buyers.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and assure a delightful fragrance circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
