To help homeowners prepare for the busy buying and selling season, the Oklahoma Association of REALTORS® offers this tip on how to stage a home for an open house:

Reduce clutter and stow personal items. It can be difficult for buyers to picture themselves in a home when looking at family photos of the current owners and personal knickknacks. Pack up personal decorations without making spaces look barren. Consider leaving three decorative items of varying heights on surfaces like end tables or mantels.
