Staging to Sell
Careful home staging is a proven method used to sell a home here in Berlin, Connecticut. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your property like a publicist would do for a popular politician. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home more attractive on the market.
Preparing your property for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your house. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house sits fewer weeks on the market after listing:
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem to fade into the background? Understanding this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. 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 boost your home's final selling price.
"Welcome to your new home!"
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, unwinding in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that enhance your house's features. I'll help you get rid of items that give the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.
I'll look over every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your house is neutral and that it's welcoming, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can think about temporary furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and deserted.
