Prior to placing your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your home the same way a PR firm would do for a well-known politician. Just like creating an image garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate a more desirable listing on the market.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a fun and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your home. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Curb appeal is your first chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to decide what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your property.
I'll tell you get rid of things that give the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's welcoming, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider borrowing furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a nice aroma circulates from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
