Staging is the vital process of glamorizing the look of any home by presenting it in an optimal light to maximize the selling price. Some of the techniques and recommendations that Merry Soellner implements are:
– Removal of homeowner’s excess personal items that the homeowner may not realize is perceived by potential buyers as clutter and that may make the home not appear welcoming to others unless removed.
– Repainting over-personalized exterior and interior colors/wall papers with more neutral shades that have more popular appeal.
– Removal/covering over of inappropriate items/materials with those that are more popular in the home’s market area. It is sometimes difficult to convey that something that the homeowner really likes is in fact a turn-off for potential buyers.
– Trimming of trees, bushes and other vegetation to result in a lighter and neater curb appeal.
– Repositioning of furniture in all rooms for maximum appreciation of views, improved functional and social orientation and sometimes removal of some pieces to yield greater spaciousness.
– Many other techniques too numerous to mention here.
You can expect your home staging specialist to be candid and professional. You will be offered good opinions and advice on how to make your home show its very best, using the “tools of the trade”. Just remember, in the end, you make the decision on how much to do to enhance the appearance of your home and make it more saleable more quickly.
