Home Staging Tips
Before you list your house for sale, consider a surefire way to sell your house: well-planned home staging. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your home similar to what a PR firm would do for a famous politician. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home more attractive on the market.
Prepping your property to sell shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for a high bid for your property. To see fewer weeks on the market in Edmond, try these house staging tips:
First, look at the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What unique features seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your house. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your house with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest adjustments that improve sales appeal. I'll suggest that you put out of sight things that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be neatly arranged. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, and play time works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to remove the personal details from the house so buyers can envision it as their new home.
Every area gets a once-over. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.
I'll make sure that your home is appealing and that it's comfortable, staying away from "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can consider renting furniture. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to bare and uninhabited.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the improvements mesh together to set the stage for what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a pleasant aroma circulates throughout your house. We'll make use of cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
