Staging your home in Vista is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to imagine themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current house as their next home.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your house. To see less time on the market in Vista, try these home staging tips:
Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your house with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest arrangements that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll advise you put in storage items that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a nice aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
