If you need to know the details of home staging to sell your home quickly in Burlington, North Carolina, contact me and I'll clue you in to the fastest ways to sell your house.
Careful home staging is an established approach used to sell a house here in Burlington. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furnishings and photos so that your home appears bigger and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Making ready your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your property. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of fixes that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll help you put out of sight things that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or busy areas make your home seem smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers like a home that brings them inside. Items that could be too personal should get moved out so that your home will have general appeal during any visit.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a nice scent flows room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
