Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Proper Home Staging

Sell quickly in The Columbia Gorge with home staging and with me as your real estate professional - 509-774-0466

Professional home staging is a surefire method applied to sell a home here in Washington. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned approach to home staging.

Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your house like an agent would do for a well-known client. Just like creating an image gives more positive attention to an actress, staging makes your real estate look better when it's on the market.

If you've completely moved out already, think about renting furniture. The goal is for your house to appear ready to live in as opposed to empty. Increased months on the market are sure signs of homes that weren't staged. As a real estate professional in The Columbia Gorge, I can give you home staging tips so that your home sells as quickly as possible. Staging your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your property.

Using my home staging advice will get your home sold more quickly in Washington than deciding not to stage. Pathfinder Real Estate Services can help you create a welcoming feeling that makes buyers to want to stay — permanently. Give me a call at 509-774-0466 and I will stage your home to sell.

Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your home spends fewer weeks on the market after listing:

Curb Appeal

Start with the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed? Understanding this helps us to choose what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Welcome Home

Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living room, unwinding in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features. I'll suggest that you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time drawings should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Disheveled or messy places make your home feel smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves calling your property "home".

Every area gets a once-over. Areas that directly affect your sale price include fixable like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be replaced, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.

Buyers expect a home that charms them. Anything that could be uninviting should get moved out so that your home will impress buyers while on the market.

Setting the Stage
The entire time your house in on the market, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Brightness is important and we'll part the curtains, and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and make sure a nice scent flows from every room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your loveseat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house has the potential to be.
