Perfecting Your Home for Prospective Buyers in San Diego, California
Before you list your home for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and photos so that your home seems bigger and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Staging your home to sell doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you going:
Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Inspect the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this assists us in determining what we can do to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched 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.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Walking-through your home from a buyer's view, I'll recommend changes that build up market appeal. I'll help you take away anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I'll review every room of your home. Enhancements that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers like a property that charms them. Items that could be "offensive" should be put away in order for your property to have general appeal at every showing.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and assure a pleasant aroma circulates from every room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
