Before you put your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. And you should definitely decide on professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Staging your house in Cumberland, Rhode Island is all about selling a lifestyle. You want buyers to imagine themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your current house as their future house.
Prepping your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your house. So, for fewer days on the market in Cumberland, start with these home staging tips:
First, look at the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What great characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with touched up paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves watching a movie in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your home.
I'll help you reduce the effect of pieces that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or messy spots make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like a house that invites them inside. Decor that could be unsightly should get moved out so that your house will have general appeal during any visit.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.
Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like open 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 look around your home and make sure a pleasant scent circulates room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
