How To Stage Your Home for an Open House

Before you put your home on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. If you want to sell your house quickly, think about a well-planned approach to home staging.

Think of staging your house as creating an “image” for your home like a publicist would do for a high profile politician. Just like creating an image attracts more popularity for a public figure, staging makes your home more inviting on the market.

Preparing your home to sell doesn’t have to be an annoying experience. It can turn into an eye-opening and inventive activity. Together, we’ll strive for a top dollar bid for your house. So, for fewer weeks on the market in Oklahoma County, try these home staging tips:

Curb Appeal

Begin with the outside of your home, better known as your curb appeal. Inspect the exterior of your house from a street view. What do you notice first? What great characteristics seem to fade into the background? Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home’s exterior isn’t as neat as possible with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it’s time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home’s final selling price.

“Welcome to your new home!”

Can buyers picture themselves lounging in your living space, reading a good book in your spa tub or studying in your home office? We want your house to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of easy living. We’ll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your property. We’ll suggest that you get rid of items that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Brick-a-brack, souvenirs, family photos, and kids’ works of art should get stored away too. We can help you simplify the decor of house. Less than inviting or busy areas make your home feel unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.

Every room gets a once-over. We’ll note the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can inexpensively be made to positively impact the sale.

Buyers want to see a home that draws them in with charm. Items that could be “offensive” should be put away so that your home will have general appeal during any visit.

Setting the Stage

We’ll tell you when for the Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to paint a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they close on your house. Dark living areas can be a real mood killer, so we’ll do things like draw back curtains and add lighting where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we’ll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and assure a nice aroma circulates from every area. We’ll include cozy-looking blankets, and place pillows on your love seat and bedding. We want buyers to feel like your house has the potential to be.

Below are a few home staging tricks we can try to get started:

Curb Appeal

First, look at the exterior of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What awesome features seem hidden? Understanding this assists us in determining what steps we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your home’s exterior isn’t as neat as possible with touched up paint and bright greenery we’ll need to address those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and raise your home’s final selling price.
