Staging to Sell

Sell quickly in Harmony with home staging and with me as your agent - (507) 886-4221

Professional home staging is a proven technique used to sell a home. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, consider a well-planned approach to home staging.

Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your house like a manager would do for a well-known politician. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.

Prepping your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. At times, it's a thrilling and inventive activity. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional bid for your property. Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house spends fewer months on the market after listing:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your best chance to create a great first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial thoughts about your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to choose what measures we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with touched up paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Does your home seem to say, "Hello From Your New Welcome Home" to a buyer? Looking through your home with a critical eye, we'll recommend adjustments that improve market appeal. We'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the look of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can picture it as their new home.

Every room gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

With us by your side, you'll know that your home is appealing and that it's comfortable, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about temporary furnishings. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
We'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can expect after they choose to buy your house. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a pleasant aroma circulates room-to-room. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
