Prior to listing your home for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the details of your home with strategically placed furnishings and photos so that your home looks as if it's bigger and buyers can envision their lives in your home.

Prepping your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. Instead it can be a fun and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your home's sale. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers form their first opinion of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest arrangements that build up Open House appeal. I'll help you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.

Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.

Buyers' agents know that their clients like a property that charms them. Anything that could be too personal should be put away so that your home will have general appeal at the open house.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house. Lighting is important and we'll open curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a delightful aroma circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
