Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a fun and inventive task. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your house. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
First, look at the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem hidden? Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your home from a buyer's view, we'll suggest fixes that improve sales appeal. We'll help you get rid of anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
We know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
We'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider temporary furnishings. You want your house to look inviting as opposed to vacated.
