Home Staging Tips
Before you put your home on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your home like a PR firm would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Preparing your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your house. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Start with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What great characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that enhance Open House appeal. I'll help you put in storage things that give the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Improvements that directly affect your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.
