How To Stage Your House for an Open House
Expert home staging is an established method applied to sell a home here in Salisbury, North Carolina. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your home quickly, consider a well-planned home staging strategy.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your property the same way a publicist would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your home. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Curb appeal is your best chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they step foot into your house. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their initial opinion of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance.Acknowledging this helps us to choose what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves enjoying game night in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight your house's features. I'll help you put in storage anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a residence that draws them in with charm. Everything that could be "loud" should go into storage so that your house will impress buyers while on the market.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and assure a delightful scent circulates from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
