If you'd like additional information about home staging to sell your home quickly in Healdsburg, contact me and I'll assist you with preparing the best image for your house.
Before you put your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, choose a well thought out approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house similar to what a publicist would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Prepping your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your property. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What great features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your home with a critical eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that improve sales appeal.
I'll tell you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a house that seems comfortable. Personal items that could be too personal should get moved out in order for your house to have general appeal to buyers.
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 will expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and ensure a pleasant aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
