Home Staging Tips

Sell quickly in Memphis with home staging and with me as your REALTOR - 901-682-1868

Prior to listing your home for sale, consider a proven way to sell your house: expert home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.

Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a publicist would do for a famous politician. Just like creating an image garners the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house more attractive on the market.

Making ready your property for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your house. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:

Curb Appeal

First, look at the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What unique characteristics seem hidden? Understanding this assists us in determining what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with retouched paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living area, relaxing in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? We want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. We'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight the features of your property. We'll advise you put in storage pieces that give the look of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can picture it as their new house.

We'll review each room of your home. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.

Working together, we'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's comfortable, staying away from "loud" or "can't-work-with" colors on the walls and furniture. And if the house is empty, you can consider renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look ready to live in as opposed to barren.
