Sell quickly in Cherryville with home staging and with me as your agent - 704-802-4560

Careful home staging is a tried and true method applied to sell a home here in Cherryville, North Carolina. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.

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

Preparing your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and inventive activity. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:

Curb Appeal

First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What awesome characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Knowing this assists us in determining what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Can buyers see themselves watching a movie in your living space, reading a good book in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your house. I'll advise you get rid of items that give the impression of clutter. Counter tops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the home so buyers can imagine it as their new house.

I'll review every room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.

With me by your side, you'll know that your home is appealing and that it's friendly, avoiding "offensive" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about temporary furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
