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:

Scale back the furniture. When a room is full of furniture, it looks smaller, which will make buyers think the home is less valuable than it is. To ensure buyers appreciate the size of each room, remove one or two pieces of furniture. For example, use a small dining set in the dining room to make the room seem bigger.
