5 Simple Tools To Make Your Home STAND OUT

When you're selling your home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're competing against hundreds of other homeowners. Repainting your rooms, upgrading your appliances, and fixing any obvious repairs are important tasks, but if you want your home to sell quickly, it's important to pay attention to the little details. The Property Shop at the Lake is here to help you succeed with these simple reminders.

Details Matter

When it's time to sell your home, paying close attention to every little detail is crucial. Your goal should be to create a welcoming environment that every buyer is drawn to and feels at home in. Pay close attention to the current season and strive to make your home staging efforts reflect the time of year. If you're trying to sell your home now, for example, display extra blankets, warm colors, and anything else you think will make your buyers feel comfortable and cozy. If you plan to try to sell you home in the summer, on the other hand, your decor strategies should be cool, breezy, and summery.

5 Year-Round Staging Tools

No matter what time of year you plan to sell your house in Osage Beach, there are a few timeless strategies you can use to make your home stand out above the rest. Here are a few tricks to keep up your sleeve.

1.  Window Treatments
Nothing dresses up a room quite like window treatments. Whether you opt for blinds, curtains, or a combination of the two, dressing up your window can be a great way to give your home a little extra appeal. If you have outdated and/or flimsy blinds, consider upgrading to nicer treatments. 

2.  Lighting
When it comes to selling your home, using the proper lighting is so important that we recently dedicated a whole blog to it (if you missed it, you can view it here). As a quick summary, it's important to use as much lighting as possible. Turn on all the overhead lights and lamps, and open all the blinds to let natural light in before every showing.

3.  Fresh Flowers
Flowers are a wonderful way to add a little life to your home, no matter what time of year it is. To bring your home staging techniques to the next level, we recommend placing fresh flowers in every room. You can vary your floral displays depending on the season, such as using dark red and/or white flowers during the winter and gentle pastels in the springtime.

4.  Pleasant Smells
The sense of smell is more closely linked to memory and emotions than almost any other sense. If your home has an unpleasant smell, selling it will most likely be a challenge. If your home has a pleasant smell, on the other hand, buyers will be subconsciously drawn to it. Bake cookies, burn a few candles, or turn on the Scentsy before a home showing.

5.  Towels, Pillows, and Blankets
Buyers are looking for environments that make them feel comfortable, cozy, and relaxed. Increase your home's appeal by tossing an extra throw over the back of the couch, adding a few accent pillows to your oversized armchair, and displaying plush, clean towels in the bathroom.
