Once you have set the price, your next step in the journey is preparing your property so that it looks attractive to buyers.
Ideally, you want your home to look like a showcase.
This is more important than you might think. REALTORS® repeatedly find that people can’t visualize the potential of a home. They have to see it. That means that how your home
shows — today — is how people see themselves in it. They can’t see past the chips, leaks, clutter and stains. In fact, they tend to focus even more on those things.
Sound overwhelming? You don’t need to do it overnight. I can point you to someone who can help, or you can break it down into just one small task a day.
And here’s good news: Everything you remove, clean or repair helps to sell your home faster and for a better price. So it’s like getting paid to do it!
Remember the last time you visited a high-end furniture showroom or a new model home with its gorgeous living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms? That’s staging.
According to the National Association of REALTORS®, staged homes sell 49% faster and for 7-11% more money. In fact, you can expect nearly half (49%) of the buyers to be positively impacted if your home is staged.3
You can hire a professional stager. Or you can follow some basic staging tips yourself. Either way, I can help.
