Before you put your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, consider a well-planned home staging strategy.
Staging your house in BAKERSFIELD is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to picture themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your present house as their next house.
Staging your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your property. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What awesome features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that enhance your house's features.
I'll advise you get rid of pieces that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers like a house that draws them in with charm. Items that could be "loud" should go into storage so that your home will have general appeal at the open house.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and ensure a pleasant aroma flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
