Careful home staging is a proven strategy used to sell a home here in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your property the same way a manager would do for a famous politician. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your house look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your property to sell doesn't have to be an annoying experience. At times, it's an eye-opening and inventive project. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your house. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
First, look at the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves watching a movie in your living space, relaxing in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your dining room? I want your house to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of ease. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your home's features.
I'll help you put out of sight anything that gives the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can envision it as their new house.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like furniture pieces that should get rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing
I'll make sure your house has mass appeal and that it's inviting, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can think about borrowing furniture. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because everything comes together to set the stage for what buyers can expect after they close on your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like part the curtains and create light where needed to show off your home. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a delightful fragrance circulates throughout your home. We'll make use of cozy-looking throws, and place pillows on your sofa and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
