Start with these home staging tips and you'll see that your home sits fewer months on the market after listing:
Begin with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in deciding what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living space, unwinding in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll tell you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly impact your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a delightful scent flows from every room. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
