Real Estate Staging
~GIVING SELLERS AN EDGE IN A BUYERS' MARKET~
Selling your home can bring the excitement of starting fresh in a new space; however, to reach that goal you must prepare to list and show the home where so many memories were created.
Choosing a Realtor® who is reputable, familiar with your location, will aggressively market your home, and assist you in setting a realistic price is an important decision... but it is not the only consideration. Effectively presenting a home to the widest base of potential buyers is more involved than signing a listing agreement and then leaving everything up to the agent; your home needs to be the most inviting property in its price range.
Although your home may be beautifully decorated, preparation for sale means it is time to un-decorate. The lovely style you've lived with for years can present a distraction from the house itself. Today, buyers research listings online, looking for specific location, number of bedrooms and baths, and price range. How would your home, in its present state, line up against other comparable properties? The old saying 'you've only one chance to make a first impression' is true in real estate. The home must appear bright, warm and inviting, and be furnished (that provides spacial references); in short, it must simply be a fairly neutral setting in which potential buyers can imagine their possessions.
