As you are placing your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your home the same way a PR firm would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.
Making ready your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home's sale. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Start with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend arrangements that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Areas that directly impact your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers like a property that draws them in with charm. Personal items that could be too personal should be put away so that your home will have general appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, 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 to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a pleasant fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
