STAGING A HOME FOR SALE HAS MANY ADVANTAGES

Before you put your house on the market, consider professional home staging as the best way to sell your house. Advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and typically a higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a well thought out approach to home staging.

STAGING YOUR HOME IS ALL ABOUT SELLING A LIFESTYLE

You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house, “home”. Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living room, relaxing in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room?

CURB APPEAL MATTERS.  Look at the exterior of your house from the view of a buyer. What jumps out at you? Inspect the condition of the paint or siding? Do flower beds need an upgrade? Does the lawn need grooming. These details of home can attract buyers from the street and into your house.

DE-CLUTTER THE HOME.  It is suggested to eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Miscellaneous home décor items, family photos, and kids’ artwork should be put away to make the home generic.  Cluttered parts of the home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living in the home.

ENHANCE THE HOME.  Engage the buyer’s senses by brightening up each room, set the mood with enjoyable music playing in the background while guests leisurely tour your home.  Make sure a pleasing scent flows room-to-room and add cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
