Home Staging Tips
Professional home staging is a proven approach used to sell a home here in Oklahoma City. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, consider a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.
Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging centers on on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the details of your home with thoughtfully placed furniture and artwork so that your home feels more open and buyers can envision living in your home.
Staging your house for an Open House doesn't have to be an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home's sale. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you going:
First, look at the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your home from a street view. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background? Acknowledging this helps us to decide what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Make yourself at home...
Can buyers picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, relaxing in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? We want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of ease. We'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that highlight your house's features. We'll tell you reduce the effect of anything that gives the look of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new house.
Every area gets a once-over. We'll note the pieces of furniture that should be put in storage, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use polishing, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
We'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider temporary furnishings. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to deserted.
