Before you list your house for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: professional home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and more offers. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.

Think of staging your home as creating an "image" for your house like a manager would do for a popular celebrity. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.

Making ready your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your property. Start with this home staging advice and you'll see that your home spends fewer days on the market :

Curb Appeal

Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background? Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Can buyers see themselves hanging out in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your house. I'll suggest that you take away pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or dirty places make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.

I'll review each room of your home. Areas that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing

I'll make sure that your home is neutral and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can think about temporary furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.

Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasing aroma circulates from every area. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
