Staging to Sell
If you want additional information about home staging to sell your home quickly in Santa Rosa, California, contact Roxanne Mercer Real Estate and I'll assist you with setting up the best image for your house.
As you are placing your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your property similar to what a manager would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating an image draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Preparing your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
First, look at the outside 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 awesome features seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your home from a buyer's view, I'll suggest arrangements that build up Open House appeal.
I'll tell you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or cluttered areas make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note 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 shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll ensure your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a nice aroma flows throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
