Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and pictures so that your home feels more open and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Preparing your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What great features seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what steps we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend arrangements that enhance market appeal.
I'll advise you put in storage things that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
I'll review each room of your home. 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 affect the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, avoiding "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows 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 assure a pleasant scent circulates from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
