Staging your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. At times, it's a fun and inventive task. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your home. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Start with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What unique features seem hidden? Understanding this helps us to choose 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 retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your property from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend fixes that build up sales appeal. I'll advise you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
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 a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a residence that charms them. Everything that could be "offensive" should get moved out in order for your home to impress buyers during any visit.
