Before you put your residence on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a manager would do for a famous entertainer. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house more attractive on the market.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. At times, it's a thrilling and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house spends fewer weeks on the market after listing:
Start with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to decide what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living space, relaxing in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll tell you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant scent flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
