Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and photos so that your home seems bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Making ready your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your house. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house sits fewer months on the market after listing:
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your home from a buyer's view, I'll recommend arrangements that build up market appeal.
I'll advise you put in storage items that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or cluttered places make your home seem smaller and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review each room of your home. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
Potential buyers like a house that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be uninviting should be removed in order for your home to have general appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and assure a nice scent circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
