How To Stage Your Residence for an Open House

staging-your-homeBefore you list your real estate for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, choose a well thought out approach to home staging.

Look at staging your house as creating an “image” for your house like an agent would do for a celebrity client. Just like creating a style attracts more attention to an artist, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.

Homes absent of furniture sit more days on the market. As a real estate company focusing on real estate in Collier County, we can give you home staging tips so that your home sells quickly. Preparing your home for an Open House shouldn’t be thought of as a problem. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we’ll strive for a high offer for your property.

Using our home staging techniques will get your home sold more quickly in Collier County than deciding not to stage. Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. can help you create an inviting atmosphere that makes buyers to want to stay — permanently. Give us a call at (800) 448-3411 and we will stage your house to sell.

For fewer weeks on the market in Southwest Florida, use these house staging tips:

Curb Appeal

First, look at the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What wonderful characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Understanding this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn’t the best it can look on the outside with retouched paint and colorful greenery it’s time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house’s final selling price.

Curb Appeal Checklist

Welcome Home

Does your house seem to say, “This is Your New Home” to a buyer? Examining your house from a buyer’s view, we will recommend changes that improve sales appeal. We will suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids’ drawings should get moved out of sight. We need to give mass appeal to the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.

Every area gets a once-over. Improvements that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

With us by your side, you’ll know that your house has mass appeal and that it’s comfortable, steering clear of “loud” or “too-bright” colors on the walls and furniture. And if you’ve already moved out, you can try renting furniture. The goal is for your house to look ready to live in as opposed to uninhabited.

Welcome Home Checklist

Setting the Stage

You’ll know when you’re ready to host an Open House, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers will expect after they choose to buy your house. Lighting is vital and we’ll part the curtains, and change light bulbs where needed to show off your property. We’ll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests tour your home and assure a nice fragrance flows room-to-room. We’ll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and place pillows on your chairs and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your current home has the potential to be their next home.
