...Dressed to Market
As soon as you make that decision to sell your home, whether you decide it yourself or if the decision is made for you, many emotions can be/will be sparked. Some of those emotions will be positive ones and others may not be so positive. That is where home staging comes in to help out. By hiring a professional home stager you can reduce the stress that putting your home on the market brings.
Just like I dress a particular way for certain events, your home is no different. OK ladies, think about all your jeans in your closet. You have your jeans that you do yardwork in, jeans that you go to the grocery in and jeans that are nice enough that you will go out to dinner in them. I just mentioned three very different pairs of jeans. Your home can have different looks as well. It looks one way in the middle of the week when you aren't expecting visitors, and your childrens' schedules have you running all over the place. When you are having a dinner party, it is set up to look very different. When your family is visiting and bringing the newest addition to the family, another niece, it may look even more different.
So the point I am trying to make is that when it comes to preparing to present yourself to others, you do similar things to present your home to others.
Think of going to a job interview and putting your house on the market to sell as very similar things. How are they in common??:
1. First Impression, First Impression, First Impression ...need I say more?
2. Buyers of a home can tell in as little as 10 minutes whether or not they can see themselves making on offer on a home. I am sure that the stat is very similar for someone in Human Resources when it comes to making an offer for a job.
3. Almost 70% of all buyers say that they would be prepared to spend more $$ on a house that is in good condition vs. one that needs work. Hiring Managers will offer a larger salary to someone who has experience and a proven track record than someone who will need a lot of training.
4. It comes down to little details like, are your nails groomed and are your shoes clean? Just like with your house, are the baseboards clean and does the shower need caulked?
5. When you walk into an interview you have no idea what you will be up against. Who will you be speaking to? What will the questions be like? You will have a lotof questions before your open house to sell your home. What type of buyers will be coming through? What will they be looking for?
People spend hours upon hours getting ready for a job interview. Putting your house on the market shouldn't be any different. You want to make your house the most appealing product to the biggest number of potential buyers. This could possible be the biggest financial transaction that you ever make, selling your house. Let's make it as rewarding and seamless as possible and get your house...
