Staging your home in Austin, Texas is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your present house as their next home.
Prepping your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your house. So, for fewer weeks on the market in Austin, Texas, employ these interior staging tips:
First, look at the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What unique characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves watching a movie in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that enhance your house's features.
I'll tell you take away anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can envision it as their new house.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider renting furnishings. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
