Staging Your Home
Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Home Staging Tips
Professional home staging is a surefire technique utilized to sell a house here in Lawton. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and higher selling prices. If your goal is to sell your house quickly, go for a thoroughly thought out home staging strategy.
Look at staging your house as creating an “image” for your property similar to what a manager would do for a popular politician. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your real estate a more desirable listing on the market.
Preparing your home for an Open House doesn’t have to be an annoying experience. At times, it’s a thrilling and inventive activity. Together, we’ll strive for a top dollar offer for your property. Begin with these home staging tips and you’ll see that your home spends fewer weeks on the market after listing:
First, look at the exterior of your home, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What dollar-earning features seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to decide what plan of action we can use to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home’s exterior isn’t as neat as possible with touched up paint and blooming greenery we’ll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost 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 recommend adjustments that improve Open House appeal. I’ll tell you put in storage anything that gives the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or busy spots make your home seem smaller and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property “home”.
Every room gets a once-over. I’ll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Potential buyers like to see a property that brings them inside. Everything that could be “loud” should be put away so that your home will achieve mass appeal at the open house.
Setting the Stage
You’ll know when to show your house, because all of the changes come together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to when they consider buying your house. Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we’ll do things like part the curtains and change light bulbs where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we’ll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a pleasant aroma circulates room-to-room. We’ll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your sofa and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
