Prior to placing your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Staging your house in Fort Worth is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to see themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current house as their future house.
Prepping your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that build up Open House appeal.
I'll advise you take away anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or busy spots make your home seem smaller and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a property that charms them. Personal items that could be "offensive" should be removed in order for your house to achieve mass appeal at the open house.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a pleasing aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house is their future home.
