Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and photos so that your home seems more open and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Prepping your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can turn into a fun and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your home's sale. Start with this home staging advice and you'll see that your home sits fewer weeks on the market after listing:
Begin with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend changes that build up market appeal.
I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Potential buyers want a residence that seems comfortable. Decor that could be uninviting should be removed in order for your house to have likability while on the market.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a delightful aroma circulates from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
