Getting Ready for Open House!

Preparing Your Home for an Open House in Nashville

Professional home staging is an established approach utilized to sell a home here in Nashville. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. Think about professional home staging for a quicker home sale.

Think of staging your house as creating a “style” for your home like a manager would do for a celebrity client. Just like creating an image gives more positive attention to a musician, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.

Empty houses stay more days on the market. As an agent in Nashville, Tennessee, I can help you stage your house so that your home sells fast. Preparing your house to sell doesn’t have to be another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we’ll work to get an exceptional bid for your house.

For less time on the market in Nashville, Tennessee, try these interior staging tips:

Curb Appeal

Begin with the exterior of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background? Understanding this assists us in determining what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn’t at its best on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we’ll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house’s final selling price.

Welcome Home

Can buyers envision themselves watching a movie in your living space, reading a good book in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I’ll help you accomplish this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your house. I’ll tell you get rid of pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids’ drawings should get stored away too. You need to “neutralize” the house so buyers can picture it as their new house.

I know instantly where a room’s best characteristics are and how to show them off. Changes that directly affect your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.

With me by your side, you’ll know that your home is neutral and that it’s inviting, avoiding “offensive” or “can’t-work-with” colors on the walls and furniture. And if you’ve already moved out, you can consider renting furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.

Setting the Stage
You’ll know when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house. To eliminate shadows critical and we’ll open curtains, and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we’ll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and ensure a nice fragrance flows from every area. We’ll add cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your loveseat and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
