Making ready your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive project. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home's sale. Start with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your home spends fewer days on the market after listing:
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your house from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve sales appeal. I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or cluttered places make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers like a home that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be "loud" should go into storage so that your house will have likability at every showing.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and make sure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
