Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Proper Home Staging
Expert home staging is a proven strategy applied to sell a home here in Dallas. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, choose a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your property like a PR firm would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Preparing your home for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your home sold. At times, it's a fun and creative task. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your home. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll notice that your house spends fewer weeks on the market :
First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves watching a movie in your living space, reading a good book in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that highlight your house's features. I'll advise you reduce the effect of anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or busy spaces make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure that your house is appealing and that it's friendly, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to barren.
