Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and artwork so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can envision living in your home.
Prepping your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your home. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What awesome features seem hidden?Knowing this helps us to choose what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend changes that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll advise you get rid of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers expect a home that charms them. Anything that could be unsightly should get moved out in order for your property to impress buyers to buyers.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a nice scent flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
