Careful home staging is a tried and true method applied to sell a home here in Burlington, North Carolina. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your home as creating an "image" for your home the same way a manager would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Making ready your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive project. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your house. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
Curb appeal is your first chance to create a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their first thoughts about your home and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a critical eye, I'll advise you of changes that build up sales appeal.
I'll advise you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or cluttered areas make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. Improvements that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful aroma flows throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
