Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Proper Home Staging
Careful home staging is an established method applied to sell a house here in Seminole, Florida. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a well thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your home similar to what a publicist would do for a high profile politician. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Preparing your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a fun and creative task. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your house. So, for less time on the market in Seminole, Florida, try these interior staging tips:
Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your house with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend arrangements that enhance Open House appeal. I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasing aroma circulates from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
