Professional home staging is a surefire strategy used to sell a house here in Houston. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and pictures so that your home appears more spacious and buyers can picture living in your home.
Preparing your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive project. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your house. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What unique features seem waiting to be noticed?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what actions we can take to invite 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 it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of items that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
I'll review each room of your home. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try temporary furnishings. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and make sure a pleasing aroma circulates from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
