Reduce Your House's Days on the Market in Mecklenburg County With Home Staging
Before you put your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: expert home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your property like a manager would do for a popular politician. Just like creating an image draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your property. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
First, look at the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem to fade into the background? Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Make yourself at home...
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve Open House appeal. I'll suggest that you put out of sight pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can see it as their new house.
I'll review every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
With me by your side, you'll know that your house is neutral and that it's welcoming, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to bare.
