Prepping Your House for Sale in Berlin
As you are placing your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and pictures so that your home seems more open and buyers can picture their lives in your home.
Staging your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a problem. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a premium offer for your property. Start with these home staging tips and you'll see that your house sits fewer months on the market after listing:
Begin with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What positive characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Knowing this helps us to choose what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
"Welcome to your new home!"
Could a buyer envision themselves hanging out in your living room, unwinding in your reading nook or hosting a dinner in your dining room? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that highlight your home's features. I'll advise you take away pieces that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or busy places make your home look less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
I'll review each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll ensure your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try borrowing furnishings. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to deserted.
