Careful home staging is a tried and true tactic applied to sell a house here in Troy, Vermont. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your home the same way a PR firm would do for a famous celebrity. Just like creating an image attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your property. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of items that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers expect a property that brings them inside. Anything that could be too personal should go into storage so that your home will have likability during any visit.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a delightful aroma circulates throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
