Look at staging your home as creating an "image" for your house similar to what a PR firm would do for a high profile celebrity. Just like creating an image attracts the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house more attractive on the market.
Prepping your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be enjoyable. Together, we'll work to get a top dollar bid for your home's sale. So, for less time on the market in Edmond, Oklahoma, start with these interior staging tips:
Start with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Examine the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What jumps out at you? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?Acknowledging this helps us to decide what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't as neat as possible with retouched paint and blooming garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.
Could a buyer envision themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your house to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that highlight your house's features.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of things that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to "de-personalize" the home so buyers can see it as their new home.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to show them off. Areas that directly affect your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need neutral paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need shining, and windows that need cleaning.
With me by your side, you'll know that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furniture. The goal is for your house to look homey as opposed to empty.
