Prior to listing your house for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, choose a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the details of your home with strategically placed furnishings and decorations so that your home seems bigger and buyers can envision living in your home.
Making ready your house to sell doesn't have to be a problem. At times, it's a fun and creative task. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home's sale. So, for fewer days on the market in Albemarle, start with these house staging tips:
Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house'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 market appeal.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of things that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or dirty spaces make your home feel smaller and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll ensure your home is likable and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a delightful scent flows throughout your home. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
