Preparing your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home's sale. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
First, look at the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What great characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this assists us in determining what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and colorful greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest adjustments that improve sales appeal.
I'll help you put out of sight things that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's friendly, staying away from "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a delightful scent flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
