Careful home staging is an established method utilized to sell a house here in Landrum, South Carolina. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better offers. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your property similar to what a publicist would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house more attractive on the market.
Prepping your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your house. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Curb appeal is your only chance to create a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their first opinion of your home and how you perform home's regular maintenance.Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that enhance your home's features.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can envision it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can try renting 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 show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a nice scent circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
