How To Stage Your Home for a FAST Sale – Fruitland Real Estate

How to Stage Your Home! Accentuate the Positive ~ Eliminate the Negative!

REALTOR Fruitland

Purchasing a home is usually an emotional decision, and making some minor changes can create major buyer APPEAL. Follow these simple tips to make a quick sale of your home!

 

Curb Appeal:

REALTOR fruitlandA new door is one of the easiest ways to give your home a face-lift! Replacing your front door can also give you the highest return on investment. Home sellers are reported to recoup 97 % of the new Front Door cost. It’s an upgrade that literally pays for itself. First Impressions should set the scene for the rest of your home, and should make the buyer want to see the rest of your home.

  • Make sure your doorbell functions well.
  • Repair any loose hardware on your front door.
  • Oil the door hinges.

 

Keep it Clean – Light & Bright!

Front Room Your Choice: Office, Den, or Living Room

Before you do anything else… Declutter your home. Decluttering your home makes it appear bigger, brighter, and much more appealing to potential buyers! Plus, selling your home need NOT be as stressful as you might think… If you keep things clean and organized!

Your home should look and feel welcoming as soon as potential buyers come in the front door. When home buyers enter your front door they usually form their opinion for the rest of your house.  Your foyer is the first area potential home buyers see when they enter your home. Just like good curb appeal, you want to make it feel welcoming and bright. Well-lit areas are the most welcoming spaces.

  • Use light neutral color schemes that brighten your home.
  • Hang a beautiful mirror to make any space look bigger and brighter!

Lighting: Use a combination of permanent lights and other lamps to make your home look welcoming anytime of day or night.  Try using a decorative chandeliers, and lamps to brighten your home.

 

Compliment Don’t Distract

Effectively stage your home by flaunting it’s strengths. You can do this by displaying updates, and making focal points in key rooms. Focus on decorating the kitchen and living rooms with the best that you have. The best way to display furniture is by grouping it in sections of the carpet and away from the walls.

Keep wall art simple, it can make or break any real estate deal. Large areas of vacant wall space can be boring, so incorporate simple artwork that complements your wall color!

Gorgeous front doors, well-lit foyers, simple decor, and neutral tones make lasting impressions that help your home sell fast!

Protect Your Home from Winter Hazards in Fruitland Idaho

Protect Your Home & $ave Money

As temperatures fall, “winterizing” your home PREVENTS heating bills from skyrocketing, and emergencies that accompany freezing temps.

snowed house

The Department of Energy says that keeping your house energy efficient saves up to 25% on heating bills! Take a few steps to prepare your home for winter. You’ll stay toasty warm….. And save your cash for Christmas!

Inspect Your Furnace

Make sure your furnace in good order before the cold weather really hits. A strong odor is normal when you first turn the furnace on for the season, but continuing smells signal a problem. Heating professionals can check your furnace and make sure it’s ready for the season, replace filters, clean the motor (eliminating the smell), and fix anything that’s broken.

Call a Chimney Sweep!

Fires are a great way to save on heating costs, but Chimney Fires occur when chimneys are obstructed, or have creosote buildup! Bird nests, leaves, and creosote pose the risk of chimney fires. Get your chimney cleaned by a certified chimney sweep before you start building fires. Close dampers when fireplaces aren’t being used to keep cold air OUT.

Reverse Your Ceiling Fan During Winter!

Warm air rises to the ceiling while cooler air sinks, so reversing ceiling fan direction will force warm air down into the living space! Pushing the warm air where you’ll feel it lets you turn the thermostat down a few notches while staying warm, and save money!

Wrap Your Pipes

Broken pipes are a nightmare… Insulate all piping that runs through unheated portions of the house–crawlspaces, basements or garages–is properly with insulation or foam rubber sleeves from Home Depot! Remember to drain, and disconnect, you garden hose from the house!

Eliminate Drafts

Inspecting for drafts under doors and windows is easiest on chillier fall days. Replace old or worn door sweeps (for exterior doors), and make sure your weather stripping is in good order! If you have air leaks near your windows, use weather-resistant caulk on the outside. HUGE amounts of heating can escape through gaps in the duct work, so inspect HVAC ducts for cracks and separations.

Clean Gutters

Clogged gutters can cause ice dams on your roof causing water to seep in and damage your house. Remove dead leaves and debris to help rain and snow drain to avoid damage!

Get Your House Ready to SELL in 3 Steps – Fruitland ID

If you’re like most people, getting your house ready to sell is an overwhelming thought. Keep it simple with these 3 steps!

Dineingroom

1. Clean inside and out!

Home buyers are turned off by other peoples dirt. Inside: Clean your home from top to bottom and make sure your bathrooms and kitchen are spotless before each showing! Outside: make sure landscaping is clean cut, and your personal property (toys and tools, etc.) are put away.

2. Repairs

Little details matter when selling your home! Make sure to patch little holes in the drywall, and get that leaky faucet repaired! Potential buyers will notice anything left un-fixed. Make each showing count by making fixes before you list your home.  Potential home buyers often feel uneasy about the condition of your house in need of any repairs!

3. Stage Your Home To Sell!

Staging your home starts with de-cluttering, decorating or organizing your furniture and belongings to define a space, and de personalizing. So put your family pictures and stacks of bills away. Make sure that each space looks it’s best for the space. Example: Dining rooms should have a clean table with a vase of flowers and chairs around it. If possible center the table under the chandelier!
