How To Stage Your Home for Sale
Before you put your house on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your home like a PR firm would do for a famous politician. Just like creating a style garners the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your property. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in determining what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves enjoying game night in your living room, relaxing in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll advise you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or cluttered spaces make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers like to see a residence that seems comfortable. Personal items that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your house to impress buyers during any visit.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house. Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
