Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Proper Home Staging
Prior to listing your real estate for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your house quickly, consider a well-planned home staging strategy.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your home the same way a publicist would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home's sale. So, for fewer weeks on the market in Tampa, employ these house staging tips:
Start with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance your home's features. I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can picture it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers want a home that draws them in with charm. Anything that could be too personal should be removed in order for your house to have general appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because everything comes together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance circulates from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
