If you want extra information on home staging to sell your house quickly in Fort Myers, Florida, contact me and I'll use my Fort Myers expertise for the fastest ways to sell your home.
Before you put your residence on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, consider a thoroughly thought out approach to home staging.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your home the same way a publicist would do for a high profile politician. Just like creating an image garners more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Making ready your property for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. Instead it can be an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home's sale. Start with this home staging advice and you'll see that your house spends fewer days on the market after listing:
Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves lounging in your living area, reading a good book in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll advise you put out of sight anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Ugly or dirty areas make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll ensure your home is neutral and that it's friendly, steering clear of "loud" or "can't-work-with" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about renting furnishings. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to bare.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can expect when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasing aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.
