Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your property like a manager would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating a style draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your home more attractive on the market.
Prepping your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative task. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your property. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll see that your home sits fewer weeks on the market :
Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What positive features seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll tell you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure your house is likable and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to abandoned.
