Why Is Staging Your Home Important?
When you get ready to place your home on the market for sale, it becomes a product, and similar to a product on the shelf at your local store, the product has features
and benefits as well as pluses and minuses, but most importantly it has Competetion.
To beat the competition in any market, your product must be priced right, and look better than the other products on the shelf. For example; imagine you are walking through a grocery store and you see two cans of green beans. Both cans are exactly the same, except, one is dusty and dented, while the other appears to be in excellent condition. Which can would you chose? The clean well maintained product, right?
Selling your home is no different. Your home is one of many homes for sale in the marketplace, therefore you must present it to potential homebuyers in the best way possible… the first time… and every time. That’s why it is so important to Stage your property first, before putting it on he market. Any real estate agent can tell you that the majority of showings happen within the first 2 weeks of putting a house on the market. Since you only get one chance to make that first impression, does it not stand to reason that you want every person who walks through your door to see your property in it’s best light?
In today’s competitive Real Estate market, properties that are not “move-in ready” are often crossed off the potential buyer’s list, even though your house may actually be the perfect property. While all potential buyers have their own style and taste, buyers today live extremely busy lives and are often two income families looking for “move in ready” spaces. Equity Enhancers recommendation will help transform your property to “move in ready”. Potential buyers will see that they can move in, and then slowly make changes to fit their personal taste and lifestyle.
