Staging to Sell

Sell quickly in Chicago with home staging and with me as your real estate professional - (773) 938-2585

Professional home staging is a tried and true tactic used to sell a home here in Chicago. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while highlighting the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and photos so that your home seems more open and buyers can envision their lives in your home.

Preparing your house for an Open House doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can turn into a fun and creative project. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your home's sale. Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your home spends fewer days on the market :

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers before they enter your home. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers create their initial thoughts about your house and how you keep up your home's regular maintenance. Knowing this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with retouched paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Can buyers picture themselves hanging out in your living room, relaxing in your spa tub or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? We want your home to welcome buyers and give them a sense of contentment. We'll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight the features of your home. We'll help you put in storage things that give the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. We can help you de-clutter your house. Ugly or busy areas make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves calling your property "home".

We'll look over every room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need washing

Potential buyers want a house that charms them. Everything that could be "loud" should get moved out so that your house will have general appeal while on the market.

Setting the Stage
At your Open House, we want to capture buyers' attention. Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and ensure a delightful scent flows throughout your house. We'll include cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your chairs and bedding. Buyers should feel like your home is their future home.

Using our home staging pointers will get your house sold faster. Mark Malave can help you create a welcoming atmosphere that makes buyers to want to stay — permanently. Give us a call at (773) 938-2585 and we can help stage your home to sell.
