Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Expert Home Staging
Before you put your home on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the features of your home with strategically placed furniture and pictures so that your home appears more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Staging your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's a fun and creative project. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their initial thoughts about your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves enjoying game night in your living space, unwinding in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that enhance your house's features. I'll advise you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a property that brings them inside. Everything that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your house to have likability during any visit.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can expect after they choose to buy your house. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and make sure a nice aroma flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
