Professional home staging is an established technique applied to sell a home here in Lexington, South Carolina. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and photos so that your home looks more spacious and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
Start with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend adjustments that build up market appeal.
I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to cold and empty.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision after they close on your house.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance circulates throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
