Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the features of your home with strategically placed furniture and artwork so that your home appears more open and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Making ready your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be an eye-opening and creative project. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your home's sale. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that improve Open House appeal. We'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. We can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy spaces make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. we'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a home that charms them. Decor that could be "loud" should be put away so that your house will garner mass appeal to buyers.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they close on your house. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and assure a pleasant fragrance circulates throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
