Staging your house

Professional home staging is a surefire approach used to sell a house here in San Diego, California. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and more offers. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.

Think of staging your home as creating a “style” for your home the same way a publicist would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating an image draws more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home more attractive on the market.

Staging your house for an Open House shouldn’t be thought of as a problem. At times, it’s a thrilling and creative activity. Together, we’ll work to get a high offer for your property. To see less time on the market in San Diego County, start with these home staging tips:

Curb Appeal

First, look at the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background? Knowing this helps us to decide what we can do to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home’s exterior isn’t as neat as possible with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we’ll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home’s final selling price.

“Welcome to your new home!”

Does your house seem to say, “This is Your Next House” to a buyer? Examining your house with a buyer’s eye, I’ll recommend fixes that enhance Open House appeal. I’ll help you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Counter tops should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to “de-personalize” the home so buyers can envision it as their new house.

Every area gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing

Buyers’ agents know that their clients want to see a home that seems comfortable. Decor that could be “offensive” should go into storage in order for your property to impress buyers at the open house.

Setting the Stage
I’ll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we’ll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we’ll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasing fragrance flows room-to-room. We’ll add cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
