Professional home staging is a proven approach used to sell a home here in Annapolis, Maryland. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a well thought out home staging strategy.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your house the same way a manager would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your house for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and inventive project. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your house. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Start with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a critical eye, I'll advise you of changes that enhance sales appeal.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can envision it as their new home.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a residence that brings them inside. Personal items that could be "offensive" should go into storage so that your home will impress buyers during any visit.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a nice fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
