Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Expert Home Staging
Prior to placing your residence on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and more offers. And you should certainly think about professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and photos so that your home seems more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Making ready your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your home. Below are a few home staging tips to get you going:
Start with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest adjustments that build up Open House appeal. I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers like to see a property that charms them. Personal items that could be uninviting should be removed in order for your house to have general appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a nice aroma flows from every area. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
