Professional home staging is a proven strategy applied to sell a house here in Orlando, Florida. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned approach to home staging.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and decorations so that your home looks more spacious and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.
Making ready your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. Instead it can be an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your house. To see fewer weeks on the market in Orlando, start with these house staging tips:
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves enjoying game night in your living space, reading a good book in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll suggest that you eliminate things that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider borrowing furniture. You want your house to look lived in as opposed to abandoned.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your house, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and make sure a nice aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be.
