Prior to placing your home on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your house similar to what a publicist would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating an image draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.
Staging your house to sell doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves lounging in your living space, relaxing in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your home's features.
I'll help you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or busy places make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers want to see a property that brings them inside. Everything that could be uninviting should go into storage in order for your house to have general appeal at the open house.
