Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your home 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 furniture and pictures so that your home appears more spacious and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Preparing your property for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your home sold. At times, it's a thrilling and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your property. Start with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your home sits fewer months on the market after listing:
Begin with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a critical eye, I'll suggest changes that enhance sales appeal.
I'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider renting furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a pleasant fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
