How To Stage Your Home for an Open House
Before you put your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your home quickly, choose a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the details of your home with strategically placed furnishings and decorations so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Prepping your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive project. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your property. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a street view. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this assists us in determining what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves enjoying game night in your living space, unwinding in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your property. I'll help you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or messy spots make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Buyers want a home that invites them inside. Personal items that could be uninviting should get moved out in order for your property to achieve mass appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful fragrance flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
