Staging to Sell
Careful home staging is a proven tactic utilized to sell a home here in San Antonio. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Look at staging your house as creating an "image" for your home similar to what a manager would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Making ready your home to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive task. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your house. So, for fewer weeks on the market in Bexar County, start with these home staging tips:
Begin with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background? Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Make yourself at home...
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your property from a buyer's view, I'll recommend fixes that improve sales appeal. I'll tell you eliminate items that give the illusion of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or busy spaces make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure that your house has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furnishings. You want your home to look homey as opposed to barren.
