Before you put your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a well-planned approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house similar to what a publicist would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Staging your home to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. At times, it's a fun and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your property. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance the features of your home.
I'll help you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or busy places make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like a property that charms them. Items that could be "loud" should get moved out in order for your house to have general appeal during any visit.
Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant scent flows from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
