Home Staging Tips
Before you put your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, choose a well-planned approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and artwork so that your home appears bigger and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Preparing your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your house. Below are a few home staging tips to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Knowing this helps us to choose what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves lounging in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that enhance your house's features. I'll help you put in storage things that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure that your house is likable and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice fragrance flows from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
