Staging to Sell
Professional home staging is a tried and true strategy applied to sell a home here in Milpitas. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, think about a well thought out home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your house the same way a manager would do for a famous entertainer. Just like creating a style draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your property. To see less time on the market in Milpitas, start with these home staging tips:
Start with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your house. I'll suggest that you eliminate anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
Potential buyers want a home that brings them inside. Items that could be too personal should be put away so that your house will have general appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house. Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like draw back 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 enjoy your home and ensure a nice aroma circulates from every area. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your house is their future home.
