Preparing Your House for Sale in Needham
Before you list your house for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your home the same way a PR firm would do for a high profile politician. Just like creating an image attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your house. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your house sits fewer weeks on the market after listing:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their first thoughts about your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par 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? Walking-through your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of changes that enhance market appeal. I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or cluttered spaces make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Working together, we'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's inviting, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look inviting as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful scent flows throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
