Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with strategically placed furniture and pictures so that your home appears more spacious and buyers can picture living in your home.
Making ready your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your house. Start with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your house spends fewer weeks on the market after listing:
Begin with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What wonderful features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside 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.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your home's features.
I'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or dirty areas make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll look over each room of your home. Areas that directly affect your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a residence that invites them inside. Personal items that could be "offensive" should get moved out in order for your property to impress buyers at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open 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 tour your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
