Staging to Sell
Before you put your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, go for a well thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your house like a publicist would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Staging your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and creative project. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your home. Use these home staging pointers to get you started:
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living space, relaxing in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your house. I'll suggest that you eliminate things that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or busy places make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review every 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 could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can think about borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful aroma circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
