House Staging Is Important!

You simply cannot dispose of the idea of house staging – especially in today’s competitive market hiring professional interior decorators has become pertinent in order to sell a house fast. According to MarketWatch.com, almost 70% houses that are professionally staged sell quicker than the ones not staged.

Also, while you would be spending money from your own pocket on house staging, it is proven pretty effective in selling the house at a very good price – so you would kind of be balanced there. You would want to present the strengths of your house and de-emphasize its weaknesses – a house staging just does that for you.

Cash the Curb Appeal

Buying a house is actually a very intimate touchy-feely subject for a lot of families. So, make sure when a potential buyer’s car pull up in front of your house, they fell in love with it instantly. And not just because of its market value or built, but they should actually be able to imagine themselves living in that particular house.

Cash the curb appeal of your property the best you can. Of course, if your house is situated in a dream location, your case is already strong. But adding a few things here and there also helps big time. Make sure that the house exterior is just the perfect amount of ‘dreamy’.

Trim the grass, take care of the unruly plants. Make the house appear as a lovely lived-in family home, not a ghost-town. Adding a welcome matt and a few flower pots near the front door adds a lovely warm touch. Take care of the lighting outside. A home safety expert and the owner of Pool Guard suggests: “If you are selling a house with a pool in a neighborhood where the majority of residents are families with kids, consider installing at least basic pool safety hardware, such as a pool cover or a fence. Depending on the state, it can be even a building code requirement to have a proper fence installed around your pool. A properly equipped pool means that the buyer will not need to invest their time and money for updates after the purchase, which means a higher asking price for the property”.

De-Clutter the Space Yet Make It Appear Lived-in

De-personalize your house before you welcome any potential buyers in your house or let your realtor host an open house. If you have moved out completely but still have stuff there, get it picked up. Allow your potential buyers to have the liberty to picture themselves in your house.

Also, do not just have your potential buyers walk into empty walls, floors and roof. Laura Bierman, a home improvement enthusiast and a creative content director at Youthful Home, suggests: "While you should keep your house clutter free, still manage to make it appear lived-in. Maybe leave a painting or two on walls. Keep the lightings intact. Take care of the paint and ceiling. Make sure it appears ‘homely’ enough."

Use the Power of Social Media

It goes without saying that you should include your house in local listings. But, with that, also create a buzz about it in your surroundings and social circle before you actually put it on sale. This helps.

Word of mouth travels fast. Mention it in neighborhood meetings, clubs etc. Also, post a blog about it. Talk about your on-sale house and twitter and Facebook. Social media gets the word around quicker than you think.
