How To Stage Your House for an Open House
Professional home staging is a surefire tactic applied to sell a house here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Home staging benefits include fewer days on the market and higher selling prices. And you should certainly decide on professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your home as creating a "style" for your home similar to what a manager would do for a famous politician. Just like creating a style attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your real estate more attractive on the market.
Making ready your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as another hurdle in getting your home sold. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll strive for an exceptional bid for your home. Use these home staging tricks to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the exterior of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Knowing this helps us to choose what measures we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't inviting with refreshed paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Looking through your house from a buyer's view, I'll suggest fixes that build up Open House appeal. I'll suggest that you eliminate pieces that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or cluttered places make your home seem less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".
Every area gets a once-over. Changes that directly impact your bottom line include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your home has mass appeal and that it's welcoming, avoiding "offensive" or "too-bright" hues on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about borrowing furniture. The goal is for your home to look inviting as opposed to cold and empty.
