Home Staging Tips
Careful home staging is an established strategy applied to sell a home here in Auburn. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher bids. And you should certainly think about professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your home like a PR firm would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Making ready your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home. So, for fewer days on the market in Auburn, New York, employ these interior staging tips:
Curb appeal is your only chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they enter your home. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first thoughts about your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to decide what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that enhance your home's features. I'll help you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a house that charms them. Items that could be "offensive" should go into storage so that your home will have likability while on the market.
