Careful home staging is a proven technique utilized to sell a home here in Vista, California. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your house quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your house similar to what a PR firm would do for a high profile politician. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Preparing your house 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 property. Use these home staging pointers to get you started:
Start with the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What great features seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your property with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest fixes that improve sales appeal.
I'll advise you reduce the effect of things that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or dirty spots make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
I'll review every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's friendly, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
