Staging to Sell

Professional home staging is a surefire technique used to sell a home here in Southern Pines. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, choose a well-planned approach to home staging.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home’s presentation to buyers and buyers’ agents while highlighting the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and photos so that your home feels bigger and buyers can envision their lives in your home.

Making ready your property for an Open House doesn’t have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we’ll strive for a high offer for your home’s sale. Start with these home staging tips and you’ll notice that your house spends fewer days on the market :

Curb Appeal

First, look at the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What positive features seem hidden? 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 as neat as possible with touched up paint and colorful garden plants it’s time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home’s final selling price.

Make yourself at home…

Can buyers picture themselves enjoying a game night in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I’ll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that highlight the features of your house. I’ll suggest that you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids’ artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of the house. Ugly or cluttered spots make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.

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

I’ll ensure your house is appealing and that it’s comfortable, avoiding “offensive” or “personalized” hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try renting furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to bare and uninhabited.

Setting the Stage
I’ll tell you when to host an Open House because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can expect after they close on your house. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer’s spirits, so we’ll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we’ll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and ensure a pleasant scent flows throughout your house. We’ll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
