Prepping your house to sell doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into a fun and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What positive characteristics seem to fade into the background? Knowing this helps us to choose what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your home from a buyer's perspective, I'll suggest fixes that enhance Open House appeal. I'll advise you get rid of items that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or messy places make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
I know instantly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers like to see a property that charms them. Personal items that could be "offensive" should be removed in order for your house to have general appeal during any visit.
