Do you need expert advice on preparing your home for the market? Would you like to know all the small, but still significant details that can exceed a new buyer’s expectations when looking at a home? At Art of STAGING AND DESIGN, we tell the truth about clutter, personal photos, decorations, and even furniture that can get in the way of a home’s flow and its overall appeal. Remember, the first impression is always the one that makes the biggest impact! This is why a consultation is crucial on every home before hitting the market. Preparation is the key to a successful sale of your home.
Maintain a Firm Price
If a property isn’t staged, buyers will try to chip away at the price. Don’t let them do this – get your asking price or above the asking price by letting us prep your property. We make this happen by doing a very thorough outdoor and indoor consultation that addresses your home’s finest features and less-than-ideal features.
For example, if we think your home could use a fresh coat of paint, we’ll provide a colour consultation. Or, if we believe simple fixes are needed, like adding a new, inexpensive light fixture or décor, we’ll give helpful suggestions.
While the home staging process usually takes about a week to complete, isn’t it worth it so that your equity doesn’t go to waste and buyers give you what you deserve for your property?
Tips for Getting Your Home Ready to Sell
When it comes to home staging, there are a few tips we want to give you:
- Clean your home thoroughly, and then clean it again
- Remove all of your personal items and photos
- Make sure there aren’t any signs that a pet lives in your home
- Commit yourself to moving by packing up extra shoes, coats, kitchen extras, and general items you don’t need on a day-to-day basis
- Remove furniture that might impede how one room flows into the next
Also, don’t forget about how important curb appeal is – make your home visually beautiful on the outside so buyers who drive by during the day and at night are impressed.
The Payoff of Staging
To put it simply, hiring a home staging expert will save you money in the long run and help you sell your home as quickly as possible. This means less stress for you and your real estate agent!
To give you another example of why home staging is so important, let’s say you were selling your car. To get the best value for it, you would make sure it’s fully detailed and clean. Preparing your home is just like this, except you’re detailing it on a much larger scale.
In addition to the tips we gave in this article, there are many more ways you can enhance your home to give it that “wow” factor. For example, rental décor items and furniture and putting beautiful photos on the listing are a way to ensure a faster sale.
