Before you list your real estate for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a popular celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Making ready your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your house. Use these home staging tricks to get you started:
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll recommend arrangements that enhance sales appeal.
I'll tell you take away pieces that give the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure that your home is appealing and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider temporary furnishings. You want your house to look inviting as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. 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 make sure a nice scent flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
