Home Staging

Putting your house on the market is among of the most confusing and stressful events you can face. Especially when you realize that homebuyers aren’t seeing your house; they’re seeing your house.  A homebuyer’s critical eye could be a little offsetting.  Okay, let’s face it… a lot offsetting.  But, remember one thing; you are not alone! Yes, the process can be intimidating, but we’re here to help with the home staging.

 

Reality vs The Dream

 

The first thing to know is that we all live in a house that is much different than the vision of perfection a buyer has when they go house hunting.  Homebuyers are meticulous and have visions of absolute perfection.  These same homebuyers may live with life’s clutter in their own house, but when they go shopping for a new house, they expect neat, tidy, and absolutely uncluttered.

 

However, the truth is that we have hectic and busy lives and we live in our home.  It’s hard to separate our house from our daily life. We wind up with shoe piles in the halls, laundry baskets always perched at the bottom of your home’s stairs, and small appliances lining our kitchen counter-tops like little culinary soldiers. Is this so wrong?  The awful truth is, yes. When you are staging your home to sell, clutter is always a deal-breaker.

 

In order to make your house as salable and appealing as possible, you need to match the buyer’s dream, and a clean slate is the only way a buyer can see their dream.  To you, the seller, this may mean some big changes. So, where do you start?  By learning more about what a buyer wants.

 

To get a sense of just how far apart a buyer’s dream is from your reality, visit a model home or two. Pick a few new home communities and look at the models. Go to open houses in communities where houses are selling.

 

Take a notepad with you.  When you get out of your car, jot down your first impressions:

 

  • What struck you about this house the moment you drove up and got out of the car?
  • Was it the clean driveway?
  • The sparkling windows?
  • The flower beds?
  • Perhaps it was something distracting, like a broken light fixture.

 

Whatever it was, jot it down, good or bad.

 

Now walk in the front door and, again, write down your first thoughts:

 

  • Were you impressed by how spacious the rooms appear?
  • Did you notice how all the rooms are so bright and sunny?
  • Maybe the clean lines and tasteful decor were appealing.

 

Maybe you can even imagine yourself living there!  Does it feel like you just walked into the pages of a home decorating magazine, or are you trying to find a bare spot somewhere, anywhere, to set your purse?

 

Did something just click?  When you look around as a buyer, what impresses you, and what distresses you?  That’s exactly what you need to know when staging your house for sale. Knowledge is power and knowing what a buyer is looking for is exactly what it takes to sell your house.

Tips For Home Staging A Living Room

The term home staging wasn’t that common back in the 1990s. People knew that a house must look its best first before it’s put on the market. However, homeowners associated this with washing dirty dishes, tidying up the closet, and the like.

Home staging has evolved over the past 30 years. Thanks to the help of professional organizers, it has become a highly sought after service, especially within the real estate industry. Below are some tips on how to stage your home’s living room. In case you can’t do these things on your own, you always have the option to hire a home stager.

Paint Your Living Room

You might think that repainting your house before you move is a tiring job. But if the color of the walls are other than light and neutral, you seriously have to reconsider. Neutrals can make any room look brighter and cleaner, not to mention, it’s almost always preferred by home buyers.

Blog for Jimmy Smith

I was contacted by Jim Smith whose mother had passed recently and daddy was placed in a nursing home.  Jim needed his parent’s townhouse cleaned out and staged so he could get ready to sell it.  When I showed up for the initial assessment, I noticed all types of military memorabilia.  His dad, Jimmy Smith, was an Army Veteran and couldn’t wait to show me all the medals and awards his dad received for his service during World War II.
