Spend Fewer Days on the Market in Winston-Salem, North Carolina With Home Staging
If you need more information about home staging to sell your home quickly in Winston-Salem, contact John-Mark Mitchell's Realty Group and I'll give you advice for the fastest ways to sell your home.
Prior to listing your house for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a publicist would do for a popular celebrity. Just like creating an image garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Preparing your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your home's sale. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Start with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?Knowing this helps us to decide what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your house from a buyer's view, I'll suggest changes that improve Open House appeal.
I'll advise you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furniture. You want your house to look homey as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a nice scent flows from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
