How To Stage Your House for Sale
Before you list your house for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and more offers. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Staging your home in Pittsburgh is all about selling a lifestyle. You want buyers to see themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current home as their next home.
Staging your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's a thrilling and inventive activity. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home. To see fewer days on the market in Pittsburgh, employ these low-cost staging tips:
Begin with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your spa tub or studying 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 suggesting changes that highlight your home's features. I'll help you put out of sight items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can think about temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to cold and deserted.
