Professional home staging is an established approach used to sell a home here in Naples. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. And you should certainly think about professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating an "image" for your home similar to what a manager would do for a high profile politician. Just like creating a style attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Staging your home to sell doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be an eye-opening and creative task. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging tips to get you going:
First, look at the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street perspective. What do you notice first? What positive characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of changes that build up Open House appeal.
I'll tell you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can perceive it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a home that brings them inside. Personal items that could be too personal should go into storage in order for your property to have likability to buyers.
