Prior to placing your house on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, go for a well thought out approach to home staging.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and photos so that your home seems bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers form their first opinion of your house and how you perform home's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this helps us to decide what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your home. I'll suggest that you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.

I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

I'll make sure your home is likable and that it's welcoming, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to abandoned.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can expect after they close on your house. Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and assure a pleasant aroma flows from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be.
