If you need to know the details of home staging to sell your property quickly in West Palm Beach, contact me and I'll assist you with promoting the best image for your home.
Careful home staging is an established strategy applied to sell a house here in West Palm Beach, Florida. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, go for a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Look at staging your house 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 look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. At times, it's a fun and creative task. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar offer for your house. Begin with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your home sits fewer months on the market after listing:
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and bright garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property from a buyer's view, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, 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 impact the sale.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is neutral and that it's inviting, steering clear of "offensive" or "can't-work-with" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look lived in as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to open your home up to buyers, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house.
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 mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a nice scent circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
