If you need more information about home staging to sell your home quickly in DuBois, Pennsylvania, contact Hoffer Realty Associates and I'll clue you in to the fastest ways to sell your home.
Before you put your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a well-known politician. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.
Making ready your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home's sale. So, for less time on the market in DuBois, start with these home staging tips:
Begin with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this helps us to choose what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living space, relaxing in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that highlight your home's features.
I'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or busy spaces make your home look smaller and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a nice aroma circulates from every area. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
