Prior to listing your home for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher offers. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Staging your home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves living and lounging in your home. You want them to see your current house as their next house.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your property. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their initial opinion of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and bright garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves enjoying game night in your living space, unwinding in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight your home's features. I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or cluttered spaces make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. Improvements 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 replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your house is likable and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house. Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant fragrance circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
