Before you put your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with strategically placed furniture and decorations so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your property with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend changes that improve sales appeal.
I'll advise you take away things that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house is neutral and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look lived in as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect 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 welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a nice scent flows room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
