How To Stage Your Home For A Quick Sale
Staging your home before it goes on the market is one of the most important things you can do to ensure a quick and profitable sale. Home staging involves improving the overall decor, design and function (organization) of a home in order to attract and retain potential buyers. Professional home staging can take your house from drab to fab!
The benefits of a professional home staging are as follows:
-Reduces the amount of time the house is on the market
-Forces the homeowner to declutter and organize belongings
-Increase the value of your home
-Learn techniques used by realtors when selling a home to attract buyers
The most important rooms to consider when staging are: bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, living room and foyer. Also, the exterior of a home should not be overlooked as curb appeal is the first step in attracting any buyer.
Here are some TIPS when staging:
Observe your house from a buyer's point of view and take a fresh look at it, as if looking at it for the first time.
Go through each room and paint what needs painting, clean carpets, rugs, drapes, clean windows, rearrange furniture so it flows, clear countertops from kitchen counters and bathrooms, and put away personal/family photos so the homeowner can imaging themselves living there. The foyer should be clutter free, organize mail and keys in baskets, store outerwear (hats, gloves,etc) in closets. Last but not least neutralize your home for top dollar. Use neutral paint colors and accessories so that homeowners can envision themselves in your home.
Home staging is worth the effort to get your place.....SOLD!
