If you want to know more about home staging to sell your property quickly in Lexington, contact Homes & Horse Farms Real Estate and I'll help you with creating the best image for your home.
Expert home staging is an established technique used to sell a house here in Lexington. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your house like a publicist would do for a famous celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate a more desirable listing on the market.
Preparing your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive project. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your property. Start with these home staging tips and you'll see that your house sits fewer weeks on the market :
Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What awesome features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend fixes that build up sales appeal.
I'll help you get rid of items that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or messy spaces make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is likable and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about temporary furniture. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a delightful aroma flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
