Staging to Sell
Prior to listing your home for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better offers. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house the same way a PR firm would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house a more desirable listing on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative project. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your house. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive 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 increase your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your home from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend adjustments that enhance Open House appeal. I'll advise you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or messy spaces make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a home that invites them inside. Everything that could be uninviting should go into storage in order for your property to have general appeal to buyers.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful scent circulates throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
