How To Stage Your Residence for an Open House
Professional home staging is a tried and true technique utilized to sell a house here in Dallas. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, think about a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your home the same way a publicist would do for a famous entertainer. Just like creating a style garners the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. Instead it can be an eye-opening and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your property. So, for fewer days on the market in Dallas, Texas, try these home staging tips:
Start with the exterior of your home, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem hidden?Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll help you put out of sight things that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll ensure your house has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to cold and empty.
