home staging: New Construction and Home Staging is Alive and Well in Tulsa Oklahoma! - 07/10/10 09:09 PM
Tulsa is having a great home selling season in 2010. Lots of homes have been sold and new construction is alive and kicking. Tulsa is a great city and a beautiful place to live. I have posted a few before and after photos of a new construction that was staged by Staging Tulsa. The 'before' photos are last. The elctricity was not on yet.
What a difference a home staging makes! (13 comments)
OR Home Staging is all about a great presentation and helping home shoppers with a great connection. Guess what… so are the Internet photos. Let me ask you a few questions. The two photos are of the same room, which master bedroom can you ‘feel’ or envision yourself living in? Which one offers you more connection to the room? How do your internet photos look or how do you want them to look? Today, the Internet is where we shop for homes. Think for a moment of your listing photos as your property’s ‘store front'. Think of (14 comments)
home staging: Home Stagers Help Dreaming & Imagination Come to Life in Oklahoma - 02/25/10 03:26 PM
Home Stagers Help Dreaming & Imagination Come to Life in Oklahoma! This Rental Property has been Transformed and is Now Ready to Sell! Everything in this cute cottage style home was cleaned, painted AND repaired. Just this step alone, will give home sellers a great launch into the real estate market with an edge on their competition. BUT, some smart sellers will take selling to the next step which is: HOME STAGING. Home staging brings to the table an entirely different dimension in the 'selling' process. Once a home has been staged, dreaming & imagination come to life... it is called (12 comments)
home staging: Home Staging Tip for Oklahoma: Doggie Doors - Take 'em or Leave 'em - 02/08/10 06:06 PM
Doggie doors are the greatest invention of ALL time. My cats use their "window door" all of the time. It was so nice to finally get them trained... now I am free. But, what if I am a buyer and don't have a dog or cat - this means I will need to replace the door after I move in. Home owners today generally don't have the time or energy to make changes to their newly purchased home right at or soon after they move in.. Most likely, they have been busy updating THEIR OWN home for sale and now don't (22 comments)
home staging: Marketing your Oklahoma home for sale? A picture is worth a thousand words. - 01/18/10 11:11 AM
It's true. When we shop online for clothes, doesn't that black velvet dress look much better on the beautiful skinny model than in the lifeless picture? The seller has marketed that dress so you will want it and buy it. And what about car commercials? The shinny red Cadillac with the beautiful red-head driving it - there was a shot of her shinny red heel on the gas pedal (remember that one). Really, do we need to know what the gas pedal of Cadillac looks like? Now that is marketing. A picture is worth a thousand words. It's true. Over 85% (16 comments)
Most often this is the scenario in home selling - it goes like this: "let's try putting the house on the market and see what happens. If it doesn't sell, we will lower the price. If it still has not sold in a few months, we will lower the price again."
On it goes until the house is sold or taken off the market. There is so much more you can do to sell your home! Why pay another costly price reduction, another mortgage payment, another electric bill or continue to wonder if you have done all you (9 comments)
This is the number one question home sellers will ask before they are even aware of what a home staging really is and what it can actually do for the sell of their home. Many home stagers are reluctant to give out their prices before they have the chance to help home sellers see the real value of a staging. Pricing will always vary according to the size of the house, amount of rooms staged and the many other home variation factors, but I hope this this will give you an idea what home staging cost is like (5 comments)
