Home Staging

Careful home staging is a tried and true strategy utilized to assist with selling a home quicker. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. Also, you many want to consider hiring a professional home staging company if you need a quick home sale.

Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your home like a PR firm would do for a well-known politician. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.

Staging your house to sell doesn't have to be challenging. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your house. Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house spends fewer days on the market after listing:

Curb Appeal:
Curb appeal is your only chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they walk into your home. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your home and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Knowing this assists us in determining what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues.
                                                                                               
Welcome to your new home:
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? Our goal is to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. We'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your home. We'll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.

Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

With us by your side, you'll know that your home is appealing and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can also consider renting furnishings on a short term basis. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to empty.

Setting the Stage:
During showings of your home, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to show off your property. Additional ideas to enhance the buyer's senses include playing enjoyable music, placing fresh flowers in the kitchen and/or dining room, or even baking a fresh batch of cookies so they are welcomed with that enticing aroma during the walk-through of your home. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
