Staging to Sell
Careful home staging is a tried and true strategy applied to sell a house here in Guerneville, California. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, choose a well thought out home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers while showing off the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and decorations so that your home looks more spacious and buyers can imagine living in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a fun and inventive activity. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional offer for your home. Start with these home staging tips and you'll see that your house sits fewer days on the market after listing:
Begin with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem hidden?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what measures we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Touring your house with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that improve Open House appeal. I'll help you put in storage anything that gives the impression of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a house that charms them. Decor that could be "offensive" should be removed so that your house will have likability at every showing.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house.

Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and assure a delightful fragrance flows from every area.
