Are you thinking of selling your home but don’t know where to start? Or do you already have your home on the market and want it sold…yesterday?
There are three factors which determine the selling price of your home: location, price and condition. Obviously, the location cannot be changed so the only two variables are the price and condition…and they are directly dependant on each other. Statistics show that staged homes sell in about half the time needed to sell a comparable unstaged home and, generally speaking, they sell for more money.
Home stagers are trained to prepare homes for the market so that they appeal to the broadest possible range of buyers and therefore sell quickly and for top dollar. Home staging does not have to cost a lot of money…..your investment to stage your home is always less than your first price reduction.
The best time to have your home staged is BEFORE it goes on the market for two reasons. Firstly, if your home has been made ‘market ready’, the listing price may be set higher. Secondly, you will have beautiful photos for the MLS listing or for your own ads….and since 90% of buyers start their search for a new home on the internet, those photos are your ‘first impression’ photos. You have only one chance to make a WOW impression!
