If you'd like to know more about home staging to sell your property quickly in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, contact me and I'll use my Rice Lake expertise for the fastest ways to sell your home.
Prior to placing your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, consider a well-planned home staging strategy.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your property similar to what a PR firm would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating an image garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.
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 an exceptional offer for your home's sale. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your house from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of changes that build up Open House appeal.
I'll tell you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like to see a house that charms them. Items that could be "loud" should be put away so that your house will have general appeal at the open house.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a nice fragrance flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
