Before you put your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your property like a publicist would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your home more attractive on the market.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. At times, it's a thrilling and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your property. Start with these home staging tips and you'll see that your home sits fewer days on the market after listing:
Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What unique characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a critical eye, I'll suggest arrangements that enhance sales appeal.
I'll advise you reduce the effect of items that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. 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 get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll ensure your home is neutral and that it's inviting, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try temporary furniture. You want your house to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers will expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and make sure a pleasant fragrance flows from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
