Before you list your house for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, choose a well-planned approach to home staging.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a famous entertainer. Just like creating a style draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Staging your property to sell doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your home sold. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative project. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your home sits fewer weeks on the market :
Begin with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What wonderful features seem hidden?Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a critical eye, I'll suggest changes that build up Open House appeal.
I'll tell you get rid of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll ensure your home is appealing and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furniture. You want your home to look homey as opposed to deserted.
