Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, choose a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your house like a manager would do for a famous celebrity. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house a more desirable listing on the market.
Preparing your home to sell doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your house. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house spends fewer weeks on the market :
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to decide what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, relaxing in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight your house's features.
I'll advise you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or cluttered spots make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review each room of your home. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers like to see a home that charms them. Everything that could be uninviting should get moved out in order for your house to impress buyers at every showing.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
