Staging to Sell
Expert home staging is a surefire method used to sell a house here in Tampa. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your house quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and decorations so that your home seems more spacious and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Making ready your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
Curb appeal is your best chance to create a positive impact on buyers before they step foot into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first thoughts about your home and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, unwinding in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance your house's features. I'll tell you put in storage anything that gives the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients expect a home that brings them inside. Anything that could be unsightly should be put away in order for your property to impress buyers at every showing.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a delightful scent circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
