Prior to placing your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. 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 sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and artwork so that your home appears more open and buyers can envision living in your home.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive project. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your home. Below are a few home staging tips to get you going:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to decide what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest adjustments that build up sales appeal.
I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll point out 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 impact the sale.
I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furniture. You want your home to look homey as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, 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 mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a delightful aroma circulates from every room. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
