Begin with these home staging tips and you'll see that your home spends fewer weeks on the market after listing:
Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves lounging in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your property. I'll suggest that you put in storage pieces that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furniture. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to bare.
