Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and decorations so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Staging your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your home's sale. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll see that your home spends fewer days on the market after listing:
Curb appeal is your only chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their first opinion of your house and how you keep up your house's regular maintenance.Understanding this helps us to decide what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of fixes that build up Open House appeal.
I'll help you reduce the effect of things that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your house is neutral and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can think about temporary furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back 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 make sure a delightful aroma flows from every room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
