It's finally caught up to us. We've done well to dodge the bullet this long, as times have been tough in the U.S. real estate market for quite some time. Although properties are starting to sit on the market for longer, we still haven't taken the same hit as our friends south of the border.
What does this mean for homeowners who want to sell? Regardless of economic conditions, there will always be people looking to buy a new home for many different reasons. You may not be able to command the same listing price that you could have several months ago, however, the upside is that if you are also purchasing a new home, chances are you'll pay less now.
To take advantage of some of the deals that are out there, you need to have that 'sold' sign on your lawn as soon as possible. To do that, your home has to be presented in the best way possible to stand out from the rest. Bringing in a professional Home Stager will make that job much easier for you.
In challenging economic times, some homeowners are reluctant to have their homes staged. They feel that since they won't be realizing the same gain on their sale as before, there isn't money on the table to spend on preparing their home for sale. This is one mistake that can come back to take a bite out of your bank account.
If houses are sitting on the market for longer, it stands to reason that during that time of limbo, there gradually becomes a larger number of properties on the market for buyers to choose from. Do you want to give potential buyers a reason to pass on your home and go on to the next one? After all, there will be many "next ones".
