Staging to Sell
If you need to know the details of home staging to sell your home quickly in Austin, contact John Horton Realty and I'll give you advice for the fastest ways to sell your home.
Expert home staging is an established approach utilized to sell a home here in Austin, Texas. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, choose a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house the same way a manager would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll see that your house sits fewer weeks on the market :
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves lounging in your living space, reading a good book in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your home.
I'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your home is likable and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and make sure a pleasing aroma flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
