Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your house similar to what a publicist would do for a famous celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Staging your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can turn into an eye-opening and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your property. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that enhance the features of your house.
I'll suggest that you eliminate things that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or messy spots make your home seem smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review every room of your home. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider borrowing furniture. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and assure a pleasant aroma flows from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
