Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Home Staging Techniques
Expert home staging is an established approach used to sell a house here in Delray Beach, Florida. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your house quickly, choose a well-planned home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your property the same way a manager would do for a popular celebrity. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Staging your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. At times, it's a fun and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your property. So, for fewer days on the market in Delray Beach, start with these low-cost staging tips:
Begin with the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in determining what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living area, reading a good book in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll help you eliminate items that give the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or dirty places make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need brightening, 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 has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furniture. You want your house to look homey as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a pleasing fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
