If you'd like to know more about home staging to sell your house quickly in Berkshire County, contact us and we will clue you in to the fastest ways to sell your home.
As you are placing your house on the market, consider a proven way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, think about a well-planned home staging strategy.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your property like a manager would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your home. So, for fewer days on the market in Berkshire County, try these low-cost staging tips:
Start with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What would've-been-eye-catching features seem hidden? Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Touring your home with a critical eye, I'll suggest arrangements that enhance the market appeal. I'll suggest that you put out of sight anything that gives the look of clutter. Countertops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of the house. Unattractive or dirty spaces make your home seem unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".
I'll review every room in your home. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing
Potential buyers like to see a house that seems comfortable. Decor that could be unsightly should be removed in order for your house to have general appeal while on the market.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when for the Open House because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house.

Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look at your home and make sure a pleasant scent flows throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home has the potential to be.
