Home Staging Tips
Before you list your house for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house the same way a publicist would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your house. So, for less time on the market in Auburn, try these interior staging tips:
Begin with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living room, unwinding in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your home. I'll tell you put in storage items that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and assure a pleasing fragrance circulates from every room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
