Many real estate agents Myrtle Beach will agree that successfully and quickly selling a home relies greatly in effective staging. Not only will your house get a lot of attention from potential buyers, you will also be able to sell it in a higher price. The best thing about staging is you do not have to spend a lot of money in order to make the house more appealing to potential buyers. All you need is a little creativity and lots of time.
Here are some staging tips to help you in selling a home quickly and successfully.
- Look at the house with a buyer’s point of view
Remember that the first thing that will attract potential buyers to your house is its outside appearance. You must ensure that the outside appearance of your house is highly attractive and buyers will not be able to resist coming inside and taking interest in the house.
To do this, stand outside your house and think of yourself as a homebuyer instead of the owner or seller of the house. Look at the house and decide whether you would want to buy the house or not. Is it appealing to you as a home buyer? Does the house grab your interest and attract you to go inside and have a tour? Can you imagine yourself buying the house?
You can also take pictures of the house using your camera or smart phone while standing outside. Once you get inside, look closely at the pictures and write down your observations. It will be easy for you to see the areas that need repair and improvement. Write these down on your pad. Continue creating a list of the things that you need to do to improve the appearance of the house. And do not forget that you are looking at the house as a buyer and not the owner or seller.
- Have a tour of the house
Again, do this from a buyer’s point of view. After buyers become attracted to the house, they will want to take a tour of the inside and the entire property. To ensure they will see your house in the best light, a real estate agent from Full Potential Real Estate suggest bringing a notepad with you while you tour the house. Use this to jot down what catches your attention in each room and area of the house.
After this, plan on how you can put more focus on each unique features, making sure that a potential buyer will not be able to miss them. Remember that you do not have to spend a lot of money in doing this. You can simply rearrange the things inside a room so that potential buyers will see what you want them to see. And sometimes, an overall cleaning and tidying will do the job. Do not forget, however, that what is important when rearranging furniture is that buyers see their selves living in the house.
- Do not remind potential buyers that you are still living in the house
Remember that one of the keys in quickly selling a home is for the buyers to see themselves living in the house. Do not make it difficult for them to do so by leaving constant reminders that you are still living in the house. These include your personal things and belongings such as books, paperwork and pictures. If possible leave a lot of open space in each room to allow the potential buyers to visualize how they will decorate and fit their things in your house. However, make sure you leave enough furniture to give them an idea how each room could best be utilized.
- Remove extra decorations and furniture
If you have a lot of furniture inside a certain room, consider removing some and keeping them in the storage room or attic – any place where they are less likely to be seen by potential buyers. You might want to start with worn out furniture and damaged decorations. Again, you want the buyers to see the house in the best light. And they will not be able to do this if they see wear and tear on some of the furniture. Like clutter, wear and tear can easily turn away your potential buyers.
- Make every corner sparkle
This is probably the best and most cost-effective way to quickly sell the house. A house that sparkles, meaning every area is clean and tidy, is a house that is well taken care of. Most potential buyers are actually looking for that factor in every house they visit and tour. They want to buy a house that has been and is well taken care so they will not have difficulties getting the house in tip top shape after buying. Remember that they are not only thinking about the time they will need to spend in improving and getting the house into shape, they are also thinking about the additional costs they will have to go through. Make it easier for them by showing that the house is already in tip top shape by making sure that every area is clean and free of dust and debris.
