Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well thought out home staging strategy.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your house similar to what a PR firm would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Making ready your property for an Open House 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 premium offer for your house. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What awesome features seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. Areas that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try renting furniture. You want your house to look lived in as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a pleasing aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
