Expert home staging is a tried and true technique applied to sell a home here in St. Clair County. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your house quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the characteristics of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and pictures so that your home looks more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.

Preparing your home for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and creative activity. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar offer for your home's sale. Start with these home staging tips and you'll see that your home spends fewer days on the market after listing:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your only chance to make a great first impression on buyers before they walk into your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance. Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't attractive on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Could a buyer picture themselves hanging out in your living room, reading a good book in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your home. I'll advise you put in storage items that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or messy spots make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.

I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.

Potential buyers like to see a property that charms them. Decor that could be "loud" should be removed in order for your house to have likability while on the market.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a delightful aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
