When you are ready to sell your house and want to make as much money as possible, consider the following staging tips. Premier One says if you can knock these out before you call a Charleston real estate agent to sign a contract the better, the house will show easier when they come by to take pictures and videos. The one added benefit to staging the house correctly is that you are going to sell the house faster as buyers are going to want to get their offers in before someone takes the house from under them.
Here are some effective house staging tips to get the maximum amount for your home.
Take down all those framed pictures of you, your family, and the kids. They will eventually have to be packed anyway, so get them down, boxed, and shipped to the local storage unit. This is a realtor trick that gets the potential buyer emotionally connected with your house rather than them having to imagine the thought of your family living there still.
Get in those closets and start boxing up things you won’t need for a few months. Get them boxed and moved to storage, the extra space is really going to increase the size of the rooms and eliminate clutter. The new buyers will instantly be able to imagine what they can do with that space.
Hire a professional cleaning service to restore the look and smell to your carpeting, upholstery, area rugs, and curtains. What you have become nose blind to might knock your buyers off their feet when they walk in the door.
Pull back the curtains, open the blinds, get as much light in every room as possible so the buyers can have a good look around. The added benefit is they can see outside too and imagine what they will be doing with all that exterior space too.
Touch up rooms that are a little dated. A fresh can of plaint in a neural color will go a long way in transforming the look and feel of any room.
If there are any repairs that are needed, now is the time to fix them so the buyers have no bargaining chips to use to get you to lower your price when they send over an offer on the house.
So now that you have an idea how to stage the house for a quick sale, start to chunk this list down one at a time to get those potential buyers emotionally invested.
