Staging your house in DuBois, Pennsylvania is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to envision themselves living and lounging in your house. You want them to see your present home as their future house.
Prepping your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. At times, it's an eye-opening and creative activity. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your property. So, for fewer days on the market in DuBois, start with these low-cost staging tips:
Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What awesome characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll advise you take away pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or dirty spots make your home seem smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
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 be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers want a residence that seems comfortable. Anything that could be unsightly should be removed in order for your home to achieve mass appeal while on the market.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, 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 enjoy your home and make sure a nice scent circulates throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
