Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Suggested Home Staging

Home staging is a tried and true strategy staging-2-3applied to sell a house here in the greater Glens Falls, New York area. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. Unlike major metropolitan areas where prevalent professional staging exists, we know of one staging company in Saratoga Springs.  We can recommend ways to stage your home using your own furniture if you need a quick home sale.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for visitation by potential buyers. Staging concentrates energy on your home’s presentation to buyers and buyers’ agents while highlighting the details of your home with strategically placed furnishings and pictures so that your home seems more open and buyers can imagine living in your home.

Prepping your property to sell doesn’t have to be an annoying experience. At times, it’s an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we’ll work to get a premium offer for your property. Use these home staging pointers to get you started:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your only chance to create a strong first impression on buyers before they enter your house. The good and bad features that jump out at buyers create their first opinion of your house and how you keep up your home’s regular maintenance. Knowing this assists us in determining what actions we can suggest to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home’s exterior isn’t up to par with touched up paint and blooming garden plants we will recommend that the issue be tackled. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house’s final selling price.

Make yourself at home…

staging-2-2Does your house seem to say, “I’m the one” to a buyer? Walking-through your property from a buyer’s perspective, we’ll suggest fixes that improve visitor appeal. We’ll tell you to reduce the effect of anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to “neutralize” the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.

We’ll review every room of your home. Improvements that directly impact your dollars include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows and wall switch plates that need cleaning.

Buyers want a residence that invites them inside. Everything that could be unsightly should get moved out so that your house will have likability while on the market.

Setting the Stage

We’ll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they close on your house. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we’ll recommend things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and assure a delightful fragrance flows from every area. Incorporate cozy-looking throws, and pillows on your couch and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be the home they always wanted.
