As you are placing your residence on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your house quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and photos so that your home looks more open and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Staging your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your property. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in determining what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, reading a good book in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your home.
I'll advise you put in storage things that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can envision it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers want to see a residence that draws them in with charm. Personal items that could be "loud" should go into storage so that your house will have general appeal to buyers.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasing aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
