Before you list your house for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. And you should certainly decide on professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and photos so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Preparing your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your property. Use these home staging pointers to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use 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 garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, reading a good book in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll advise you take away items that give the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture 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 that your house is appealing and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furniture. You want your home to look homey as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasing scent circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
