Professional home staging is an established tactic utilized to sell a home here in Muskogee. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. And you should certainly try professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your property the same way a PR firm would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating a style draws more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Prepping your home for an Open House doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive task. Together, we'll strive for a top dollar bid for your home. Below are a few home staging tricks to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your house, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your house from a street perspective. What jumps out at you? What great features seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to choose what plan of action we can use to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't attractive on the outside with refreshed paint and colorful greenery we'll need to tackle those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Examining your home with a buyer's eye, I'll suggest arrangements that build up sales appeal.
I'll help you take away items that give the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "generalize" the home so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
I know instantly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients expect a residence that brings them inside. Items that could be uninviting should be put away in order for your house to impress buyers to buyers.
Setting the Stage
During your Open House, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses.
Dark rooms can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the ambiance with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasing fragrance circulates room-to-room. We'll include cozy-looking blankets, and pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current home is their future home.
