Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your house the same way a PR firm would do for a popular politician. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Staging your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your house. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Curb appeal is your best chance to create a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their first thoughts about your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your property from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend changes that improve Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you put out of sight items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over each room of your home. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try renting furniture. You want your house to look homey as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
