Staging to Sell
Prior to listing your home for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating an “image” for your home like a publicist would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.
Preparing your home for an open house doesn’t have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we’ll work to get an exceptional offer for your property. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What would’ve-been-eye-catching characteristics seem hidden? Knowing this assists us in deciding what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn’t attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery, it’s time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house’s final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves hanging out in your living space, relaxing in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. We’ll help you achieve this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your house. We’ll help you reduce the effect of items that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids’ artwork should get stored away too. We can help you de-clutter your house. Less-than-inviting or dirty spots make your home seem unkempt, and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing.
We’ll ensure your home is appealing and that it’s comfortable, steering clear of “offensive” or “can’t-work-with” colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
We’ll tell you when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers will expect after they close on your house. Brightening up each room is critical, so we’ll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we’ll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasant fragrance circulates room-to-room. We’ll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
