Professional home staging is a tried and true technique applied to sell a home here in Piedmont, Oklahoma. Home staging benefits include less time on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your property like a PR firm would do for a well-known celebrity. Just like creating an image draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.
Prepping your home to sell doesn't have to be another hurdle in getting your house sold. It can actually be a blast. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
Begin with the exterior of your house, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from a quick glance from the street. What do you notice first? What unique characteristics seem to fade into the background?Knowing this assists us in determining what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living space, unwinding in your reading nook or inviting family and friends over for a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your Open House to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending changes that enhance the features of your property.
I'll tell you take away anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be clutter-free. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unsightly or cluttered spots make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
I'll look over each room of your home. Enhancements that directly impact your bottom line include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers like a property that brings them inside. Anything that could be unsightly should get moved out in order for your house to have likability during any visit.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your house, because everything comes together to paint a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up each room is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and reduce shadows where needed to welcome the buyer.

We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your couch and bed. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.
