Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, think about a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and decorations so that your home appears more spacious and buyers can envision living in your home.
Making ready your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of changes that improve market appeal.
I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about renting furniture. You want your house to look homey as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, 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 make sure a pleasant scent circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
