Prior to listing your home for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your house the same way a publicist would do for a famous entertainer. Just like creating a style draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your property. So, for fewer weeks on the market in Winston-Salem, try these house staging tips:
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What great features seem hidden?Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight your home's features.
I'll advise you put out of sight anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a property that brings them inside. Personal items that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your home will garner mass appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and make sure a pleasant scent circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
