If you'd like to know more about home staging to sell your house quickly in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, contact The Virtual Real Estate Team and I'll assist you with promoting the best image for your home.
Professional home staging is an established technique utilized to sell a home here in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and more offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, choose a well thought out home staging strategy.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your property similar to what a publicist would do for a high profile entertainer. Just like creating an image garners more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Staging your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into a thrilling and creative task. Together, we'll work to get a high bid for your home. Below are a few home staging tips to get you started:
Begin with the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What wonderful features seem hidden?Knowing this helps us to choose what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and bright garden plants it's time to get those things done. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Touring your property with a buyer's eye, I'll advise you of arrangements that build up Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you get rid of pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or cluttered spots make your home look less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time seeing themselves calling your property "home".
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Areas that directly impact your dollars include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's friendly, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" hues on the walls and furniture. And if none of your belongings are there, you can consider borrowing furnishings. You want your home to look lived in as opposed to vacated.
Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we want to engage the buyer's senses.
Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and make sure a pleasing fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bed. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
