Staging your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your property. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll see that your home sits fewer days on the market after listing:
Start with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your property from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of changes that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's inviting, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about borrowing furniture. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and make sure a pleasant fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
