Perfecting Your Home for Sale

Professional home staging is a surefire approach used to sell a home here in Saint Joseph. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and better offers. And you should certainly decide on professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.

Staging your home is all about promoting a lifestyle. You want buyers to imagine themselves living and lounging in your home. You want them to see your present house as their future house.

Making ready your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive project. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your house. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:

Curb Appeal

Start with the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem hidden? Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with touched up paint and bright garden plants we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Could a buyer envision themselves lounging in your living room, reading a good book in your reading nook or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that highlight the features of your house. I'll advise you put out of sight pieces that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or cluttered spaces make your home look less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves living there.

I'll look over every room of your home. Areas that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing

I'll ensure your home is neutral and that it's inviting, staying away from "loud" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to barren.

Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a pleasing scent circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your current home is their future home.
