Professional home staging is a proven technique utilized to sell a home here in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Some positive aspects of home staging include less time on the market and better offers. If you want to sell your home quickly, go for a well-planned home staging strategy.
Think of staging your house as creating an "image" for your house like a manager would do for a popular entertainer. Just like creating a style attracts more positive publicity to a public figure, staging makes your home look better when it's on the market.
Staging your home for an Open House shouldn't be thought of as a problem. It can actually be a great time to let your creative juices flow. Together, we'll work to get an exceptional offer for your house. Use these home staging tips to get you started:
First, look at the outside of your home, also called your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your house from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What would've-been-eye-catching characteristics seem waiting to be noticed?Understanding this helps us to decide what actions we can take to draw buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't at its best on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery we'll need to tackle those issues. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and increase your house's final selling price.
Can buyers see themselves enjoying game night in your living area, reading a good book in your master bedroom or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of easy living. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting changes that enhance your home's features.
I'll suggest that you reduce the effect of things that give the impression of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be neatly arranged. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and kids' artwork should get stored away too. I can help you de-clutter your house. Unattractive or busy places make your home feel less spacious and buyers have a harder time seeing themselves living there.
I know exactly what a room's best features are and how to highlight them. Enhancements that directly impact your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need fresh paint, carpet that needs changing, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.
I'll make sure your house is appealing and that it's friendly, steering clear of "offensive" or "too-bright" shades on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try renting furnishings. The goal is for your home to look lived in as opposed to cold and deserted.
Setting the Stage
You'll know when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can envision when they consider buying your house.
Brightening up your interior is critical, so we'll do things like open curtains and add lighting where needed to show off your property. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music to listen to while guests experience your home and ensure a nice scent flows room-to-room. We'll add cozy-looking bedspreads, and pillows on your chairs and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
