Before you list your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, choose a well thought out home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and artwork so that your home feels more open and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Preparing your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your house. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Start with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your house from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend arrangements that build up market appeal.
I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can envision it as their new home.
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, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider renting furniture. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a delightful scent flows room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
