Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Proper Home Staging
If you'd like to know more about home staging to sell your home quickly in Saint Cloud, contact me and I'll give you advice for the fastest ways to sell your home.
Careful home staging is a tried and true strategy applied to sell a home here in Saint Cloud, Florida. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a well-planned approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your house the same way a publicist would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating an image attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.
Making ready your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your home's sale. To see less time on the market in Saint Cloud, Florida, start with these home staging tips:
First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What awesome features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves enjoying game night in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your home.
I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a residence that seems comfortable. Items that could be "offensive" should go into storage so that your home will impress buyers during any visit.
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 ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a nice fragrance circulates throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
