Recently, I was lucky enough to attend a Seminar and earn the designation of a CHMS. For those of you that do not know what the Acronymn is the designation stands for Certified Home Marketing Specialist. (Or Home Stager)
As a Realtor,...we all need to have any edge to help clients make better informed decisions, whether (buyer or seller).
In today's "Buyers Market", it's an absolute must to "Stage your Home". Buyers in today's market are probably some of the most savist buyers ever because they live in real time with (www.) where everything is at thier finger tips.
Any Homeowner who lists a house in today's market must be just as savy,...cause "SAVY" ...
Will = A Quick Sale and money in your pocket
Remember ,First Impressions do make a difference,....and lets face it... you never get a second chance to make a first impression !! ( I do love that line)
Staging Do's - Prepare your property to appeal to the Needs of Buyers to make an EMOTIONAL CONNECTION with your home.
1. Unclutter & Organize - Minimize, reduce clutter. (To reveal the true spaciousness of the home)
2. Clean - A sparkling clean home tells Buyers that it's well cared for.
3. Repair - Show there is no work to be done here.
4. Neutralizing - By Neutralizing decor you create an environment where anyone can see themselves living there. (In your home)
These Suggestions are just a few that might help you to a "Quicker Sale" in today's Market. Good Luck !!
