Sell quickly in Edmond with home staging and with me as your real estate agent - (405) 340-4224

Before you list your real estate for sale, consider the best way to sell your house: careful home staging. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your house quickly, consider a well-planned approach to home staging.

Home staging is part of preparing your home for sale. Staging concentrates energy on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the characteristics of your home with strategically placed furniture and decorations so that your home appears bigger and buyers can imagine their lives in your home.

Prepping your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. At times, it's a fun and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a premium offer for your home's sale. To see less time on the market in Edmond, employ these home staging tips:

Curb Appeal

Begin with the outside of your house, also called your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your house from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What positive features seem waiting to be noticed? Knowing this assists us in deciding what actions we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't the best it can look on the outside with refreshed paint and blooming greenery we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your home's final selling price.

Make yourself at home...

Can buyers envision themselves hanging out in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of contentment. I'll help you do this by suggesting changes that enhance the features of your home. I'll tell you eliminate pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be cleared off. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get stored away too. You need to "neutralize" the house so buyers can see it as their new house.

I'll look over every room of your home. I'll note the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that need shining, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively influence the sale.

Buyers want to see a house that charms them. Items that could be unsightly should be removed so that your home will have likability to buyers.

Setting the Stage
In every opportunity, we're doing well if we're engaging the buyer's senses. Dark rooms can be a real mood killer, so we'll do things like part the curtains and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the air of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests look around your home and assure a delightful fragrance flows room-to-room. We'll incorporate cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your love seat and bedding. Buyers should feel like your house is their future home.
