Before you list your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. And you should certainly think about professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Staging your home in Healdsburg is all about selling a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current house as their future home.
Preparing your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into an eye-opening and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your home. Use these home staging pointers to get you started:
Begin with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What wonderful features seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight your house's features.
I'll advise you put out of sight pieces that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or busy places make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider borrowing furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to open your home up to buyers, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasing scent flows room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
