Home staging brings Westfield Sellers top dollar. It’s been proven that an empty house takes longer to sell than a well staged one. Why is that? Buyers have an easier time imagining your space as their space when you set the stage for them.
Home Staging Brings Westfield Sellers Top Dollar
As a Westfield luxury home Seller, you need to set the scene for a potential Buyer. Classic looks make a better impression than a cluttered space. On the other hand, a completely empty home leaves a Buyer feeling empty as well. For a quick, successful sale, you need to make sure you put your home’s best face forward.
De-Clutter – You don’t have to pack everything you own. Take down family photos, books and tchotchkes floating around your Westfield home. You can also make rooms feel less cluttered by taking out one or two pieces of furniture. Clear kitchen and bathroom counters of any excess, such as mixers, toasters, coffee makers, make-up, hair accessories, etc. Leave out only one or two decorative items (a bowl of fruit in the kitchen, a nice basket of artisan soaps in the bathroom).
Paint – Home staging brings Westfield Sellers top dollar. If your paint is chipped, peeling or simply dull, a new coat of a neutral color can transform a drab room into a vibrant area. Paint darker walls a lighter color to brighten the look of the room.
Lighting – You want to bring as much light into a room as possible. Use sheer panels on the windows. Add extra fixtures (desk lamps, floor lamps, sconces, etc) to darker rooms. If you have valuable art pieces on the wall, add a spotlight to highlight them.
Accessories – “De-cluttering” does not equal “vacant”. While walls should stay neutral, you can add pops of color throughout with throw pillows or a brightly colored vase with fresh flowers. If your sofas or chairs are looking a little worse for wear, consider purchasing a light, neutral colored slip cover to place over it.
Keep it Clean – Scrub all walls, windows, cabinets, fixtures, counters, floors and baseboards until they gleam. Pull out the refrigerator and clean the stove. Get rid of any cobwebs throughout your entire house. Buyers will open every cabinet, investigate every closet and check each corner of a home to assess its potential.
