Before you list your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Staging your home in Lexington, Kentucky is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to imagine themselves living and lounging in your home. You want them to see your current house as their next house.
Prepping your house to sell doesn't have to be a problem. Instead it can be an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your home. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Curb appeal is your first chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they step foot into your home. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to 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? Walking-through your house with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of fixes that build up sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or cluttered areas make your home feel smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a house that brings them inside. Anything that could be "offensive" should go into storage so that your home will have likability at every showing.
Setting the Stage

We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
