Welcome Home Checklist

Sell quickly in Santa Barbara with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - 805-899-1100 Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, relaxing in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of contentment. I'll help you accomplish this by recommending small improvements that enhance your home's features. I'll help you put out of sight anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.

Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.

I'll make sure that your home is neutral and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can try borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look ready to live in as opposed to bare.

Setting the Stage

I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Brightening up your interior is of major importance, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests take a walk-through of your home and make sure a nice scent circulates throughout your house. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and throw pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your home has the potential to be.
