Prepping your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they step foot into your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers create their initial opinion of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your home. I'll suggest that you put in storage pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or cluttered places make your home look smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a residence that invites them inside. Items that could be unsightly should go into storage in order for your home to garner mass appeal during any visit.
