Professional home staging is an established method applied to sell a home here in Gatesville. 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 approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a PR firm would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home a more desirable listing on the market.
Making ready your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. Instead it can be an eye-opening and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home. Start with this home staging advice and you'll see that your home spends fewer weeks on the market :
Start with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, relaxing in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll suggest that you take away pieces that give the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
I'll look over each room of your home. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
With me by your side, you'll know that your house is likable and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider borrowing furniture. You want your house to look lived in as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a pleasing aroma circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home. Take a look at the Staging Checklist.
