All You Need To Know About Home Staging
Posted in Home Staging
The Home Staging that can be translated as “real estate development stage,” is a concept imported from the United States which is proven for over 30 years in Canada, Denmark, England and Sweden.
In Sweden and in England, this concept is an obligatory passage, whereas in France we are only in Balbutiements and people do not necessarily see the utility of spending before selling.
Return on investment
When the sale is delayed, the board is often to lower the price. The other solution is to call Home Staging because it is better to invest reasonably about 2% of the house price rather than completely lowering the sale price by wasting a lot of time and money.
The goal of Home Staging is to value your property for the sole purpose of selling quickly and at the best price. According to realtors, 9 out of 10 people buy their house or apartment with a heart stroke and especially take their decision in the first 90 seconds.
Specifically, the Home Stager, Home Staging applies the basic principles of creating a home that will appeal to the greatest number. It redesigns the space, creates an atmosphere so that potential buyers can project themselves and feel already at home.
Home Staging is suitable for both small and large surfaces. These may be apartments, houses, business or commercial premises.
Some DIY Home Staging Tips
Clear all unnecessary and personal objects from furniture throughout the house. Keep decorative objects on the furniture restricted to groups of 1, 3, or 5 items.
Clear all unnecessary objects from the kitchen countertops. If it hasn’t’t been used for one month… put it away! Clear refrigerator fronts of messages, pictures, etc. (A sparse kitchen helps the buyer mentally move their own things into your kitchen.)
In the bathroom, remove any unnecessary items from countertops, tubs, shower stalls and commode tops. Keep only your most needed cosmetics, brushes, perfumes etc., in one small group on the counter. Coordinate towels to one or two colors only.
Rearrange or remove some of the furniture if necessary. As owners, many times we have too much furniture in a room. This is wonderful for our own personal enjoyment, but when it comes to selling we need to thin out as much as possible to make rooms appear larger.
Take down or rearrange certain pictures or objects on walls. Patch and paint if necessary.
Review the inside of the house room by room, and Paint any room needing paint.
Clean or replace carpets or drapes that need it.
If you need room to store extra possessions use the garage or rent a storage unit.
Leave on certain lights during the day. During “showings” turn on all lights and lamps.
Have stereo FM on during the day for all viewings.
Go around the perimeter of the house and move all garbage cans, discarded wood scraps, extra building materials, etc., into the garage.
Check gutters for roof moss and dry rot. Make sure they are swept and cleaned.
Look at all plants… prune bushes and trees. Keep plants from blocking windows. “YOU CAN’T SELL A HOUSE IF YOU CAN’T SEE IT.”
Weed and then mulch all planting areas. Keep lawn freshly cut and fertilized. Remove and dead plants or shrubs.
Clear patios or decks of all small items. such as small planters, flower pots, charcoal, barbecues, toys. etc. (Put them in the garage or a storage unit.)
Check paint condition of the house — especially the front door and trim. “CURB APPEAL REALLY WORKS!”
