How To Stage Your House for an Open House
Prior to placing your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your house the same way a manager would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating a style garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house spends fewer days on the market after listing:
Start with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What wonderful features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and colorful greenery 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 house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property from a buyer's perspective, I'll suggest arrangements that improve market appeal. I'll advise you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or cluttered spaces make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Potential buyers like a property that seems comfortable. Everything that could be uninviting should be removed so that your home will have likability during any visit.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasant scent circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
