Home Staging Tips
Prior to listing your home for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with strategically placed furnishings and decorations so that your home feels bigger and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Making ready your house to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your home. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial opinion of your house and how you perform house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest changes that enhance Open House appeal. I'll suggest that you take away things that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant scent circulates room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
