Expert home staging is a tried and true approach used to sell a house here in Cary. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your home the same way a publicist would do for a popular politician. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Staging your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home's sale. Begin with these home staging tips and you'll see that your home sits fewer months on the market :
Start with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves enjoying game night in your living room, reading a good book in your spa tub or studying in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your home.
I'll advise you take away things that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or cluttered areas make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves living there.
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Working together, we'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's friendly, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furniture. The goal is for your house to look inviting as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light 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 make sure a nice aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current house is their future home.
