Careful home staging is a tried and true method used to sell a house here in Park City. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and better offers. And you should certainly decide on professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your property the same way a PR firm would do for a well-known politician. Just like creating an image garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.
Preparing your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your house. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What great characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Walking-through your property with a critical eye, I'll suggest changes that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll help you take away items that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or cluttered places make your home look smaller and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. Improvements that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Working together, we'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can consider renting furnishings. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.
Setting the Stage
At 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 draw back 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 take a walk-through of your home and assure a nice fragrance circulates from every room. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
