Perfecting Your House for Sale in the Anderson and Greenville areas of South Carolina
Professional home staging is a proven method used to sell a home. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices.
Home staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and decorations so that your home looks as if it's more spacious and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Staging your home shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold, it can actually be enjoyable. Try these house staging tips to get your home market ready:
Curb appeal is your first chance to make a strong first impression on buyers before they step foot into your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers form their first thoughts about your home. Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves watching a movie in your living space, reading a good book in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your home. I'll help you get rid of pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or cluttered areas make your home feel smaller and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing.
Working together, we'll make sure your home is appealing and that it's welcoming, staying away from "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furnishings. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to empty.
Setting the Stage
In the short time that your house will be on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasant fragrance flows throughout your home. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home has the potential to be their HOME.
