Prior to listing your house for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, go for a well thought out home staging strategy.
Staging your house in San Pedro is all about selling a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current home as their future home.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
Start with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your house from a street view. What do you notice first? What positive characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, unwinding in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your home's features.
I'll suggest that you put in storage items that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or busy areas make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review every room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider renting furniture. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to deserted.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, 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 to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a nice fragrance flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
