Before your home is shown
One of the keys to success in today’s ultra-competitive real estate market is to position your home as the most desirable property at a given price in a given area.
Obviously, the most important variable in that equation is price. But making sure your home is in optimal showing condition will set it apart from the competition and could be the difference between a timely and productive sale or a long, drawn-out process.
Here is a checklist of preparations to make before showing your home. Be sure to consult your @properties broker to find out what improvements they recommend.
Staging your home
Staging is the art of merchandising a home to improve its marketability. It can be as simple as rearranging a few pieces of furniture or as elaborate as hiring a professional to furnish an empty home right down to the plants and artwork.
Today, every home that is listed for sale should be staged to some degree. Your home must show like a model in order to stand out against the competition.
Your @properties broker can give you suggestions for staging or help you decide if you would benefit from a professional stager.
Here are some easy and inexpensive staging tips to consider.
