Making ready your house for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and bright 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.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your house from a buyer's view, I'll recommend changes that improve sales appeal.
I'll help you take away anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can see it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider renting furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.
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 will expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and assure a delightful scent circulates throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
