How To Stage Your Home for Sale

Sell quickly in Guerneville with home staging and with me as your REALTOR - 707-303-6358

Before you put your house on the market, consider a surefire way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.

Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.

Staging your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can turn into a fun and creative task. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your first chance to create a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their first thoughts about your home and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do 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 colorful greenery we'll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, reading a good book in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance your home's features. I'll tell you eliminate anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.

I'll look over each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively affect the sale.

I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furnishings. You want your house to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.

Setting the Stage
You'll know when to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to show off your house. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and ensure a nice scent flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
