Professional home staging is an established method applied to sell a home here in Fort Myers, Florida. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Staging your home in Fort Myers is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to see themselves living and lounging in your house. You want them to see your current house as their next home.
Staging your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your house. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a street view. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this helps us to choose what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your property with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of adjustments that improve sales appeal.
I'll help you take away anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unsightly or cluttered places make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time picturing themselves living there.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
I'll make sure that your home is likable and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your house to look homey as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasant aroma flows from every area. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
