As you are placing your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, choose a well-planned approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and artwork so that your home looks as if it's more open and buyers can envision living in your home.
Preparing your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your house. To see less time on the market in DuBois, try these house staging tips:
Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in determining what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves enjoying game night in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll tell you get rid of things that give the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try renting furniture. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a pleasant scent flows from every room. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
