Prior to putting your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly think about professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating an "image" for your home similar to what a publicist would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.
Making ready your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. At times, it's a fun and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they walk into your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial thoughts about your house and how you perform house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend fixes that enhance sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy places make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's friendly, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and assure a pleasant scent circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
