Staging to Sell
Before you list your real estate for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, consider a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your house the same way a publicist would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house more attractive on the market.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your property. So, for fewer weeks on the market in St Augustine, try these house staging tips:
Begin with the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living area, unwinding in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property. I'll tell you get rid of pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or cluttered spaces make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly affect your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a delightful scent circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
