Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Expert Home Staging
Careful home staging is a tried and true technique applied to sell a house here in Oklahoma City. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher offers. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Look at staging your house as creating a "style" for your home the same way a manager would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Preparing your property for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll strive for a high offer for your property. Below are a few home staging tips to get you going:
Start with the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from a street view. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with touched up paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves hanging out in your living room, unwinding in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your home. I'll advise you get rid of anything that gives the impression of clutter. Table and counter tops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or cluttered spaces make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
I know exactly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively influence the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients like to see a property that brings them inside. Anything that could be unsightly should be removed so that your home will have general appeal during any visit.
Setting the Stage
At every showing, we want to capture buyers' attention. Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a pleasing fragrance circulates from every area. We'll add cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your chairs and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
