Expert home staging is a tried and true strategy used to sell a house here in Austin, Texas. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house like a PR firm would do for a famous entertainer. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.
Prepping your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
Curb appeal is your best chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your home. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your home and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what we can do to attract 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 it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves hanging out in your living space, relaxing in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that enhance your home's features.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or dirty areas make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas 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 ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a nice fragrance circulates throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
