Home Staging In Shadowridge
If your goals are to sell your Shadowridge home quickly and for the best possible price you need to present your home at its very best when you go to sell it. It should sparkle.
An entire industry called home staging has sprung up to fulfill the needs of home owners getting their home ready to market. The goal of home staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers which is consistent with the seller’s goal of selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Statistics support home staging, according to the National Association of Realtors, 31% of buyers increased their offer on a home 1-5% when the home was staged. Take the current average Shadowridge home price of approximately $557,000, for example. Based on NAR’s survey, you could make about $14,000 more on a home that’s been staged.
In addition, 77% of buyers were more able to envision themselves moving into a staged home, and 40% were more willing to get in the car and visit a home they saw online when it was staged. When you list the property for sale with Brenda and myself, we will set up a consultation with a home stager at our expense to have your home analyzed.
Home staging begins after you've cleaned, de-cluttered, and made minor repairs. It's about creating moods. It's about making the home look bigger, brighter, warmer, and more loving. It's about dressing the home for sale. It’s the organizing that pulls the home's look together. The important thing is to engage some aspect of home staging. If you do, you're more likely to quickly sell for top dollar.
Home stagers possess the skills of a top-level designer, and they create dramatic scenery that appeals to all five senses. The secrets to their success can be subtle details that come together to create a cohesive and pleasant experience for visitors walking through the home. A home stager will make suggestions throughout the house. They will suggest arranging furniture in an appealing manner, and add unique elements to shelving, bookcases, and fireplace mantels.
Stagers bring in a large array of items to spruce up the house. Here is a sampling of items professional stagers often use to dress each room:
- Silk flowers
- Floor and table lamps
- Area and throw rugs
- Small love seats
- Inflatable queen-size beds
- Plastic tables and chairs
How they are utilized is limited only by the creativity and vision of the stager. The idea is to draw attention to areas you want potential buyers to look at. To add décor, arrange furniture and dress up the home to make it look stunning.
Stagers will also suggest putting unnecessary furniture in storage, boxing books that over load shelves and removing unnecessary personal items. Less furniture can make rooms appear larger. Stagers use the same rule with cabinets, closets and counters. If they're stuffed full, buyers will think they're too small. Keep them tidy and half empty.
Buyers start the buying process by viewing properties online at their computers. We want to make sure the property appears at its best. When the property is ready to go on the market it is best to hire a professional photographer to take the listing photos. Home staging is important as it draws more buyers to physically view the property after seeing it online.
As the real estate industry often stresses, the first impression is the key factor in selling your home. Potential buyers often make up their mind right after they step in the front door. They were already forming an opinion as they pulled into your driveway! This is very true in Shadowridge.
If your home is vacant and empty a home stager can bring in furniture and accessories to market the home.
If you plan to live in your home during the selling process, you can use your own furniture and décor. It’s helpful if your furniture is current and in good condition.
The idea is improving a property's appeal by insuring it is a welcoming, attractive product that any buyer can see himself/herself living in and, thus, desire to purchase.
With the aid of a professional home stager, your house can make a notable first impression on potential homebuyers. Mister Shadowridge, Steve Blair 760-216-8008
