Preparing your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home's sale. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house sits fewer months on the market :
First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great features seem to fade into the background? Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Make yourself at home...
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your house with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that build up sales appeal. I'll suggest that you eliminate pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or dirty areas make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like to see a property that charms them. Decor that could be too personal should be put away in order for your home to have likability to buyers.
