We offer home staging. Because home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace, the goal of A Flair 4 Things is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers thereby, selling a property more swiftly and for more money.
1. Grab potential buyers from the curb.
Make potential buyers fall in love with the home from the street by adding potted plants and flowers, powerwashing patios and walkways, weeding the garden and mowing the lawn. It's the first chance to make a good impression, so we make it count.
2. Make it sparkle.
We mop, dust, vacuum, wash windows, baseboards and clean even the dog/cat. People will look in the cupboards, under the sinks and in the closets. Additionally, we pay attention to odors.
3. Observe color and light.
You may love hot pink in the living room, but too-bright colors turn buyers off. Neutralize strong colors for the broadest appeal. A neutral home appears larger and has less chance of offending someone. Also, open up blinds and draperies to make sure there's sufficient natural light throughout the home. Remember, lighting is the most effective way to set a mood.
We take the homeowner out of the picture to make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves and their stuff in the space.
5. Consider replacing furnishings.
Think about removing or replacing worn or outdated furnishings and get rid of extra pieces. The time has come to move beyond matching furniture, so break up your sets; dated can easily become eclectic with editing and rearranging. Consider consulting with a professional staging company for design direction and advice on rental furnishings to create an inviting home with broad appeal to a wide range of buyers.
6. Invest in new artwork.
Displaying new artwork is a great way to breathe a new life into a room. Photography can be used to contemporize a room and add a splash of color as well.
7. Make repairs.
Make your home a high-maintenance zone. Repair squeaky doors, chipped or smudged paint as well as broken fixtures and fittings that you've neglected.
Not only can an area rug hide shabby flooring, but it can also bring in added color and depth to a space.
8. Apply a fresh coat of paint.
It's the best bang for your buck that will quickly refresh a dull and dated room. Slap a fresh, neutral color on the space. Choose a beige or taupe for living spaces and a neutral green or blue for bathrooms.
9. Don't forget the floors.
Get rid of worn carpets and consider refinishing shabby hardwood floors. An inexpensive new area rug is a quick fix and can disguise the look of old floors.
10. Spring for new light fixtures.
Renew the look of the room by replacing old or dated light fixtures, door hardware, light switches and outlets. If it's tacky and older than you, get it out of there.
