Spend Less Time on the Market With an Open House and Home Staging Tips

Sell quickly in Stratford with home staging and with me as your REALTOR - (580) 759-3700

Careful home staging is a tried and true approach utilized to sell a house here in the Stratford area. Some positive aspects of home staging include fewer days on the market and higher bids. If you want to sell your home quickly, think about a well thought out home staging strategy.

Look at staging your home as creating a "style" for your home 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 more inviting on the market.

Making ready your property for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. Instead it can be an eye-opening and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a high offer for your property. Below are a few home staging pointers to get you started:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your first chance to create a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The pluses and minuses that jump out at buyers shape their initial perception of your house and how you upkeep house's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to decide what we can do to invite buyers from the street and into your home. If your home isn't the best it can look on the outside with retouched paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your home with a critical eye, we'll suggest adjustments that build up Open House appeal. We'll advise you reduce the effect of items that give the illusion of clutter. Table and counter tops should be free and clear. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. We can help you de-clutter your house. Less than inviting or dirty spaces make your home look unkempt and buyers have a more difficult time picturing themselves calling your property "home".

Every room gets a once-over. Enhancements that directly affect your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need washing

We'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's inviting, staying away from "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your home to look homey as opposed to barren.
