Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a blast. 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 only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first perception of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.Knowing this assists us in determining what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves lounging in your living area, unwinding in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that enhance the features of your property.
I'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Areas that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your house is neutral and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look homey as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasing fragrance flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
