Before you put your house on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
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 details of your home with strategically placed furnishings and photos so that your home appears bigger and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Preparing your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your home. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their first opinion of your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Knowing this helps us to decide what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight your home's features.
I'll tell you reduce the effect of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or dirty places make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful fragrance flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
