Making ready your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your home. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your home sits fewer days on the market :
Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem hidden?Knowing this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite 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 blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living space, unwinding in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your house. I'll help you put out of sight items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. 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 polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Potential buyers want a house that brings them inside. Items that could be "offensive" should be removed in order for your home to have general appeal while on the market.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and assure a pleasant fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
