Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What awesome characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll recommend arrangements that improve market appeal. I'll tell you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or cluttered spots make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly 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 new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
Potential buyers expect a property that draws them in with charm. Items that could be "offensive" should go into storage so that your home will have general appeal to buyers.
