If you want more information about home staging to sell your home quickly in Lake Oswego, contact Bylsma Team and I'll help you with preparing the best image for your house.
Expert home staging is an established tactic applied to sell a home here in Lake Oswego. Some advantages to home staging include fewer days on the market and higher offers. And you should definitely think about professional home staging if you need a quick home sale.
Think of staging your house as creating a "style" for your home like a manager would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating an image draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house more inviting on the market.
Making ready your house for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as an annoying experience. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your property. Use these home staging pointers to get you going:
Begin with the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Examine the exterior of your home from the view of a passerby. What do you notice first? What awesome characteristics seem to fade into the background?Understanding this helps us to choose what actions we can take to attract buyers from the street and into your house. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with touched up paint and blooming greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your property with a buyer's eye, I'll recommend changes that enhance market appeal.
I'll suggest that you eliminate pieces that give the appearance of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Disheveled or cluttered spaces make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a more difficult time imagining themselves living there.
I know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use shining, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to positively influence the sale.
I'll make sure that your home has mass appeal and that it's comfortable, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" shades on the walls and furniture. And if the house is vacant, you can think about temporary furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to bare.
