Careful home staging is a proven tactic applied to sell a home here in Lexington. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, choose a well-planned home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the features of your home with strategically placed furniture and photos so that your home looks more open and buyers can envision their lives in your home.
Making ready your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home's sale. To see fewer weeks on the market in Lexington, South Carolina, employ these house staging tips:
Start with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your house from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend changes that improve market appeal.
I'll suggest that you take away things that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I know exactly what a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about temporary furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to 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 will expect when they consider buying your house.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant aroma circulates from every room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
