Three Steps to Selling Your Home in a Buyers Market
Step One – Market it on the Inside (Professional Home Staging) After living in a home for more than 2 years, it is almost impossible to “objectively” view the space from a buyer’s perspective. The elements of the home that may have annoyed us oriinally, we no longer notice. Our homes are like our children: we are filled with sentiment about them, so that objectively altering them to fit a buyer’s perspective becomes nearly impossible.
Step Two – Get the Word Out – (Marketing Campaign) 90% of homebuyers are searching online at photos before they decide to visit. Buyers will decide to visit the homes that appeal to them while searching online. Your online photo presentation is competing against many other homes for the buyers attention.
Step Three – Price the Home Right the First Time Your real estate agent is an expert on the marketplace and at reading and understanding comparables. Statistically, a home that “sits” loses its new listing buzz and ends up settling for a lower price down the road.
Research the homes for sale in your area and talk with your agent about introducing your home at a price that will encourage potential buyer traffic because the first two steps to selling your home will be sure to promote offers.
Our home staging services will help you sell your home quickly and for top dollar. In today’s buyers market it is more important than ever to do all that you can to make your largest commodity stand out among the competition.
We take lots of beautiful photos of the staged home and share them with the seller and the real estate agent for use in marketing the home online.
In most cases we are able to use what the home seller already has. We may suggest small purchases as an investment in the home staging process.
Depending on your budget and timing, we may suggest paint, electrical and other cosmetic improvments. We will only suggest changes that will result in a high return on investment.
New home? Want to refresh your current space? We use the same expertise that we use for home staging to create redesign solutions throughout the home to create beautiful spaces that you will love to come home to.
