Before you put your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the features of your home with strategically placed furnishings and decorations so that your home looks as if it's more spacious and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Preparing your house to sell doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into a fun and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Begin with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that build up sales appeal. I'll tell you reduce the effect of pieces that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your house is neutral and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a delightful fragrance circulates from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
