How To Stage Your Residence for an Open House
Before you list your house for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the features of your home with strategically placed furnishings and artwork so that your home looks more spacious and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Staging your property for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your house. Use these home staging tricks to get you started:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they step foot into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight your home's features. I'll advise you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about borrowing furniture. You want your house to look lived in as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a nice fragrance circulates from every room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
