Careful home staging is an established tactic utilized to sell a house here in Santa Rosa. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a manager would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Staging your property to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can turn into an eye-opening and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home's sale. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that enhance the features of your home.
I'll tell you put in storage items that give the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or busy areas make your home look unkempt and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home is likable and that it's comfortable, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
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 mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a delightful scent circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house has the potential to be.
