STAGING A HOUSE FOR SALE
8 Expert Tips for Staging a House for Sale
Anyone who has moved from one house to another knows that selling your previous property is not a very easy task. That is why Donna Andruk Team - Keller Williams Realty is here to help you sell your house faster at the right price. The following are some expert house staging tips that work exceptionally well in making quick sales:
The First Impression Matters
The first thing the buyer sees is the front entrance when walking up to the house. It should be simple and, at the same time, attractive. The seasonal decorations some homes are very fond of should be removed, and all dirt scrubbed off.
Creating ample walking space for clients is a strategy to help them envision their furniture in the house. Oversized and damaged furniture makes it impossible to attract buyers by ruining the entire look.
A dark room is a gloom room. The entire house should be well lit by turning on lights and opening the blinds on all windows. A well-lit room also appears bigger and more welcoming.
Homeowners who like having bright colors on walls should implement this tip. It is more time consuming and expensive. Some buyers may find bright colors a turnoff, and therefore, it is advisable to paint a flashy color like white or gray.
Home staging is the perfect time to take care of repairs and patches that can be a red flag for buyers. Some paint touch-ups may be necessary too, where previous paint has chipped off. The buyer should find a property that looks nice and well maintained.
Clean Every Bit of the House
Buyers prefer a clean home, which is a sign that the previous owner was responsible and took good care of the house. Every inch of the house, from ceiling corners, kitchen counters, baseboards, should be shining when the buyer comes to view the property.
Do Away with Clutter
The basic things in the house such as unseasonal clothes, décor, games, and papers take up plenty of room. Buyers move around, opening closets to have a glimpse at their potential space. Some things that are not needed daily should be packed and stored during viewing.
Put More Effort Where It Counts
According to NAR (National Association of Realtors), the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom have the most influence on a house buyer’s decision. House owners should look to focus more on staging those rooms.
House staging is a process that requires a few smart decisions without spending much money. At Donna Andruk Team - Keller Williams Realty, Keller Williams Realtor, we provide these services and ensure the sale of homes at an incredible price.
