Prior to listing your home for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and pictures so that your home appears more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home's sale. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your home spends fewer months on the market :
Begin with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in deciding what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with retouched paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves watching a movie in your living area, unwinding in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your home.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
