Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your house. So, for less time on the market in Santa Rosa, try these home staging tips:
Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves hanging out in your living space, reading a good book in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that highlight your home's features.
I'll help you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or busy places make your home look less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a home that invites them inside. Items that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your house will impress buyers while on the market.
