Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale.

Curb appeal is your first chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers create their initial opinion of your home and how you perform house's regular maintenance.Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a critical eye, I'll recommend fixes that enhance market appeal.
I'll help you get rid of pieces that give the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or busy spaces make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
Every room gets a once-over. Improvements that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers like to see a house that invites them inside. Personal items that could be unsightly should be put away so that your house will achieve mass appeal while on the market.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like open curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and make sure a pleasing aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
