Prior to putting your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher offers. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the details of your home with strategically placed furniture and pictures so that your home feels bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Prepping your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your home's sale. Use these home staging tricks to get you started:
Curb appeal is your only chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your home. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first perception of your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that improve market appeal.
I'll tell you take away pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or busy spaces make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
Every area 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 need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a home that charms them. Items that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your home will have likability at the open house.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can expect after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and make sure a pleasant scent circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
