Selling your home can be overwhelming, having the right tools in place from the beginning will certainly take some of the challenge away. Before we begin discussing the selling price of your home or how to "ready it” for the market, it's important to complete a thorough walk-through. I'll take notes, ask questions and get a feel for how your home lives. I may see observe items that go unnoticed by you. It’s difficult to see our home as others my view it.
It's important to de-personalize, de-clutter and pare down. Once the de-cluttering has taken place a light staging or possibly a full staging is worth the time and investment. Having a pre-inspection is also important it allows you to find out about any significant items which may concern a Buyer, it will give you the opportunity to correct items for less cost. As a seller you do not want to be caught having to reduce the price of your home due to the home inspection report. Repairing or replacing items ahead of time will cost far less than reducing the price of your home. It will also shorten the negotiation period resulting in moving you toward a successful signed around contract and a quicker close!
I believe good representative photography is key to communicating how your home will appear online, online viewing for home purchases are a large percentage of the market. Having the right photos can make all the difference. After a careful evaluation of sold and current properties with similar features, square footage, a comprehensive CMA is a worthwhile tool for evaluating a listing price. The process uses similar comparison of the features and benefits and allows for a price per square foot evaluation, this is most helpful for establishing the listing price.
I like to have all the lights turned on for showings, I also prefer the showing scheduled with at least one-hour notice. This gives the owner (or me) time to turn on lights and tidy up! Happy Selling!
Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging a home prior to listing it will give you an advantage when selling by making it appealing to the highest number of buyers, offering you a potentially higher price and a larger buying audience. By staging a home beautifully, buyers can envision themselves in your home and can understand more fully how your home “lives.”
