Prior to putting your home on the market, 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. And you should definitely 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 focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with strategically placed furniture and artwork so that your home looks more open and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Staging your house for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home. To see fewer days on the market in Huntsville, start with these house staging tips:
Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging 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 up to par with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll tell you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can see it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers want to see a home that invites them inside. Decor that could be "offensive" should get moved out in order for your home to have likability while on the market.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
