Staging your house in Albemarle, North Carolina is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current house as their future house.
Prepping your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your house. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your house with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that build up sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a residence that charms them. Decor that could be "loud" should get moved out so that your home will impress buyers at every showing.

We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
