If you need to know the details of home staging to sell your home quickly in Fort Myers, Florida, contact me and I'll assist you with setting up the best image for your house.
Before you list your house for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your house similar to what a PR firm would do for a popular politician. Just like creating an image garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your house. Use these home staging tricks to get you going:
Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome features seem hidden?Knowing this helps us to decide what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer see themselves watching a movie in your living room, relaxing in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you accomplish this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your home.
I'll advise you eliminate anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Areas that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want a house that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be too personal should get moved out in order for your home to have likability at the open house.
