Prior to putting your house on the market, consider the best way to sell your house: professional home staging. Some advantages to home staging include less time on the market and higher offers. And you should certainly consider professional home staging if you need a fast home sale.

Staging your home in Oakland is all about marketing a lifestyle. You want buyers to envision themselves calling your house "home". You want them to see your present home as their future home.

Staging your house to sell shouldn't be thought of as a nerve-racking experience. Instead it can be a thrilling and creative project. Together, we'll work to get a premium bid for your home's sale. Start with this home staging advice and you'll notice that your house sits fewer weeks on the market after listing:

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is your first chance to create a great first impression on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial thoughts about your home and how you perform the home's regular maintenance. Understanding this helps us to choose what we can do to attract buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and blooming garden plants we'll need to tackle those issues. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and elevate your house's final selling price.

"Welcome to your new home!"

Does your home seem to say, "This is Your New Home" to a buyer? Looking through your property from a buyer's view, we'll recommend fixes that improve market appeal. We'll advise you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' works of art should get moved out of sight. You need to give mass appeal to the home so buyers can envision it as their new home.

We know instantly where a room's best features are and how to show them off. Enhancements that directly affect your sale price include easy-to-fix items like furniture pieces that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs steaming, fixtures that need polishing, and windows that need cleaning.

We'll ensure your home is likable and that it's inviting, avoiding "loud" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furniture. You want your home to look inviting as opposed to bare.

Setting the Stage
We'll tell you when to host an Open House, because all of the improvements mesh together to create a picture of what buyers can envision after they choose to buy your house. Dark living areas can really dampen a buyer's spirits, so we'll do things like draw back curtains and change light bulbs where needed to welcome the buyer. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing softly and make sure a pleasing scent flows from every area. We'll incorporate cozy-looking blankets, and throw pillows on your couch and bedding. Buyers should feel like your current house has the potential to be.

Using our home staging pointers will get your house sold faster in Oakland. Thomas-Chambers Company can help you create a welcoming atmosphere that makes buyers to want to stay — permanently. Give us a call at (510) 601-0116 and we can help stage your house to sell.
