I am watching the leaves change quickly and just came to realize that Fall is settling upon us in the Twin Cities of MN. I do love the Fall - with football, crunching leaves, school for the kids, and the return of my favorite sweatshirts. However I also feel a bit of sadness as I watch the process unfold. I love Summer and am always a little sad to see it go. This year is no exception, however I am in a bit of a different mindset. I am trying to stay upbeat as the economy continues its leveling process and feel a sense of compassion for those who are out of work or struggling to sell their home.
I find that the more I read, the harder it is to stay positive. So I am vowing to not get wrapped up in the swarm of concern that is encircling our world, nation, state or even town. I am going to enjoy the changing seasons and work to bring a sense of comfort to others who may be feeling the combined effects of everything this Fall. In Brooklyn Park, MN I am going to be a token of good will and positive energy. Maybe that doesn't sound like much to you ... I think mindset is everything.
Home Staging and Redesign methodologies are very helpful as well. I am incorporating them in my home with the changing season. Many home sellers are hoping to get their property sold before the snow flies and the holidays arrive. In Minnesota, moving in the winter is not easy! I would expect business to pick up a little during the next few months and provide some savvy sellers and agents with an advantage.
Since buying a home is so emotional, tapping into that emotion through innovative staging techniques tends to tug on the heartstrings during this time of year more than ever. Consider incorporating some emotional touch points in the properties you have listed and watch the faces of potential buyers as they stroll through the home. Color also has a powerful impact on people. There are great ways to incorporate color with accessories and decor. Providing a glimpse of a lifestyle they can aspire to gives them a sense of comfort. And I know at this time of year, comfort is a great feeling!
For home sellers, it can reinvigorate their ambition and well-being. Waiting for your home to sell is draining and stressful. Staging can relieve some of the anxiety as home sellers stop trying to just get it sold and instead send out an energy of 'welcome'. Buyers sense this and respond. Sellers are also less anxious because the space makes them feel better. It generates a sense of confidence.
