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 furnishings and photos so that your home looks as if it's more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a fun and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your home's sale. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your house sits fewer weeks on the market after listing:
First, look at the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What great features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves enjoying game night in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your property.
I'll tell you get rid of pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider renting furniture. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasant scent circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
