Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Home Staging Techniques
As you are placing your residence on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and better offers. And you should definitely think about professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house more attractive on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your house. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves lounging in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight your home's features. I'll tell you eliminate things that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I'll look over every room of your home. Enhancements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers want to see a property that draws them in with charm. Everything that could be "loud" should go into storage so that your house will have general appeal during any visit.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint 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 open curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance circulates from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
