Prior to placing your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, go for a well thought out approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with strategically placed furnishings and decorations so that your home feels bigger and buyers can envision living in your home.
Preparing your home for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your home. To see less time on the market in Pierre, employ these home staging tips:
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem to fade into the background?Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest changes that enhance sales appeal.
I'll tell you put in storage pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
I'll look over each room of your home. 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 brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a pleasant scent circulates from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
