Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and decorations so that your home looks as if it's more spacious and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Making ready your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your house. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What wonderful features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of adjustments that enhance market appeal.
I'll tell you eliminate things that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new house.
I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers will expect after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a nice scent flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
