Expert home staging is an established method applied to sell a home here in Gloucester. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a fun and inventive activity. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging tips to get you going:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par 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.
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance your home's features.
I'll help you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or dirty areas make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a home that seems comfortable. Items that could be too personal should be removed in order for your property to have general appeal at the open house.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a pleasing scent flows throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
