Do you want to sell your Southshore home faster…and for more money?
If you have watched any popular cable home improvement channels, you’ve probably seen a fair amount of shows based entirely on the subject of staging your house as you try to sell it. Some simple and inexpensive changes such as furniture layout, walls color, and removing personal items can end up making a big difference in how fast you sell your house and how much you will get for it.
If you think your homes selling price is based entirely on location, square footage, and amenities, think again. There are hard facts proving that a staged home can help increase success and selling price.
By staging your house, you’ll make your listing more attractive to both agents as well as prospective buyers. Agents talk to other agents who are also directing their buyers to the best homes on the market. An attractive listing will be shown more often, meaning more market exposure—critical for a quick and profitable house sale.
In some markets, staging is house for sale is the norm and often non-negotiable. In markets where the practice of staging is not as common, you can really stand out by presenting a move-in ready house that the buyers are attracted to and can imagine living in.
Bottom line: Spending some additional time and a small amount of money staging your house is often a sound investment that helps you sell your house faster and at a price you will be happy with.
