Expert home staging is a surefire tactic used to sell a house here in Saratoga Springs, New York. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and more offers. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and decorations so that your home feels bigger and buyers can picture living in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your home. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves watching a movie in your living space, relaxing in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by recommending changes that highlight your home's features.
I'll advise you put in storage pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new house.
I know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Enhancements that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a home that charms them. Personal items that could be unsightly should be removed so that your house will impress buyers to buyers.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the 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 tour your home and make sure a pleasant scent flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.
