Before you list your home for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. And you should definitely consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and decorations so that your home looks as if it's more open and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.

Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll strive for a premium bid for your house. To see less time on the market in Central Jersey, try these home staging tips:

Curb Appeal

Start with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Acknowledging this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Can buyers envision themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. We'll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your home. We'll suggest that you reduce the effect of anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get stored away too. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or busy spots make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.

We know instantly where a room's best characteristics are and how to highlight them. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively impact the sale.

Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a residence that draws them in with charm. Decor that could be unsightly should get moved out in order for your house to have general appeal at the open house.

Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasant fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your sofa and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
