Before you list your house for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, think about a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a PR firm would do for a famous celebrity. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.
Preparing your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's a thrilling and inventive activity. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your property. To see fewer days on the market in Cornelius, North Carolina, employ these house staging tips:
Start with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem hidden?Acknowledging 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 refreshed paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your house's features.
I'll suggest that you take away anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can see it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. 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 inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about temporary furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a delightful scent circulates throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
