We are picking up where we left off last month on how to stage your home for sale in St. Helena, CA or Napa, CA. Follow these last steps to get your beautiful house ready for those potential buyers and give yourself peace of mind knowing your hard work will pay off soon to sell your Napa Valley real estate property.
Clean, Patch Work, and Repairs
Homebuyers want to see a well taken care of home and property, so after you’ve decluttered, you’ll want everything from the ceiling to the floors and every corner in between to be spic and span. Dust the blinds, deep clean the fridge, oven and baseboards. Patch up and paint over all holes, scratches and any other impurities.
Remove any pets before each showing, vacuum and clean any area they’ve touched, and open the windows to air out the house to ensure there’s not any odour left behind. Candles and air fresheners can also risk triggering allergies, so be mindful of using.
Freshen up the Curb Appea
With the exterior of the Napa Valley real estate property being the first sight prospective home buyers see, you’ll want to make sure the whole property is top-notch. The lawn is mowed, flowers planted, house and walkways power-washed, overgrown plants trimmed, weeds pulled, windows, welcome mat and outdoor furniture cleaned.
Lighting is Essential
Open any blinds and curtains before each showing to brighten each room. Wipe down your lampshades and dust the bulbs to ensure the most light comes through. Replace any old or burned out fixtures and change warmer colours to whiter fixtures to create more daylight.
Your real estate agent will be a great guide to help stage your Napa Valley real estate property, any changes to make and any way to add even more value to your home to charm those who come for the viewings. They might suggest showcasing fresh flowers in the living room, hanging clean folded towels in your bathroom, or even assorting freshly baked cookies or fresh fruit on the kitchen counter. Once you’ve followed their advice and spruced up your home for sale in St. Helena, CA or Napa, CA by staging it, you can sit back, relax, and wait for those potential home buyers to come by and see your beautiful home.
