Careful home staging is an established approach utilized to sell a home here in Annapolis. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while highlighting the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and pictures so that your home looks more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Prepping your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home's sale. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves lounging in your living space, unwinding in your reading nook 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 your home's features.
I'll advise you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's friendly, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests enjoy your home and make sure a nice aroma circulates from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
