Staging Your House

Staging to Sell

Expert home staging is an established method applied to help sell a home. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, consider a well-planned home staging strategy.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for showings and an Open House. Staging focuses on your home’s presentation to buyers and buyers’ agents, while showing off the features of your home. Thoughtfully placed furnishings and artwork make your rooms appear larger; allowing buyers to envision living in your home.

Staging your house for an Open House shouldn’t be thought of as an annoying experience. Instead, it can be a fun and inventive project. Together we’ll strive for a high offer for your home. So, for less time on the real estate market, start with these low-cost staging tips:

Curb Appeal

First impressions are important. Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses, that jump out at buyers; form their initial perception of your house and how well the home has been maintained. Knowing this helps us to decide what measures 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 greenery, you’ll want to tackle those issues as soon as possible. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist to learn about ways to elevate your home’s final selling price.

Make yourself at home…

Does your house seem to say, “Hello, From Your New Home!” to a buyer? Examining your house from a buyer’s perspective, we’ll advise you of changes that will enhance market appeal. We’ll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or cluttered areas make your home look unkempt, and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property “home”.

We’ll review every room of your home. We’ll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.

Make sure that your house is appealing and that it’s welcoming, staying away from “loud” or “too-bright” hues on the walls and furniture. And, if your furniture and accessories are no longer in the house, you could consider borrowing or renting furniture. You want your house to look ready to live in; as opposed to empty and vacated.

Setting the Stage

You’ll know when you’re ready to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they close on your house. To eliminate shadows, part the curtains and create light where needed; to show off your house. Enhance the ambiance of the home with quiet music playing in the background, and ensure that a nice fragrance flows throughout your house. It’s a good idea to incorporate cozy-looking throws and decorative pillows on your chairs and bedding. It will help potential buyers feel like your house has the potential to be their new home.
