As you are placing your home on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, go for 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 while highlighting the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and pictures so that your home feels more spacious and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative task. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your house. Start with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your house spends fewer days on the market :
Begin with the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in determining what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that enhance your home's features.
I'll advise you reduce the effect of things that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about borrowing furniture. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a nice fragrance circulates from every room. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
