Spend Fewer Days on the Market in Albemarle With Home Staging
If you need to know more about home staging to sell your house quickly in Albemarle, contact Glen Alford Realty and I'll assist you with creating the best image for your house.
Before you list your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furnishings and decorations so that your home seems more open and buyers can picture living in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your property. Use these home staging tricks to get you started:
Start with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this assists us in determining what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves hanging out in your living space, reading a good book in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your house's features.
I'll advise you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll review every room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers want a property that brings them inside. Anything that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your property to have general appeal while on the market.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a pleasant aroma circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
