Before you list your home for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the features of your home with strategically placed furnishings and pictures so that your home looks as if it's more spacious and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Prepping your house to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your property. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll see that your home sits fewer weeks on the market :
First, look at the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your house.
I'll suggest that you eliminate things that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a pleasing scent flows room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
