Staging your home in Healdsburg, California is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to envision themselves living and lounging in your house. You want them to see your present house as their next home.
Staging your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a thrilling and inventive project. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your house. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your home sits fewer months on the market after listing:
Start with the exterior of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this helps us to decide what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or messy areas make your home look unkempt and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics 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 could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home is appealing and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to uninhabited.
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 can envision after they close on your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a pleasing fragrance flows from every area. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
