Reduce Your House's Days on the Market in Durham, North Carolina With Home Staging
Prior to listing your house for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If you want to sell your home quickly, go for a well thought out home staging strategy.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your property like a PR firm would do for a famous politician. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate more inviting on the market.
Making ready 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 top dollar offer for your property. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
Begin with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem hidden? Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.
"Welcome to your new home!"
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your house from a buyer's view, I'll suggest changes that build up Open House appeal. I'll suggest that you put out of sight things that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or busy places make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
I know exactly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. Changes that directly impact your dollars include fixable like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's friendly, staying away from "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.
