Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and photos so that your home looks more spacious and buyers can picture living in your home.
Preparing your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can turn into a fun and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your property. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Begin with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest fixes that build up sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or cluttered places make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure your house is likable and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider borrowing furniture. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back 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 make sure a delightful scent flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
