Making ready your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your home. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your property from a buyer's perspective, I'll recommend changes that improve Open House appeal.
I'll help you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your house has mass appeal and that it's friendly, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasing scent flows throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
