Staging a home for sale has always been important, and in the current market it’s become even more critical. Showings are a lot less frequent these days so sellers need to make the best impression on every buyer. If you’re like 8 out of 10 people, you’re house is probably not ready to show to potential buyers. The secret is to put yourself in the buyers’ shoes. Walk through your house room by room forgetting that you’re the owner.
Do you get the impression that you’re walking through a model home? Are all the painted areas and flooring neutral and in excellent condition. Do all your rooms and closets appear spacious, clean, and well-lit? It’s not easy. Daily life, kids, pets, and limited bank accounts can all take a toll on our homes. I understand believe me…but buyers don’t. They want the home to be move-in ready and if it’s not they will move on to the next.
I offer a free, no obligation walk through to provide you with some pointers to increase the buyer appeal for your property. I am not a professional stager and I may recommend you hire one to help get the most for your property. Hiring a professional stager is usually money well spent. What I can do is take a quick look and give you some general pointers to get you started and give you an idea where to focus your energies. I work with buyers every week so I know what today’s buyer wants and expects.
Please call, e-mail or simply fill out the form below if you’d like me to take a quick look or even if you just have some general questions. I’m happy to help.
