Staging your home may not be enough

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Franklin, TN

It takes more than just properly staging your home to get it sold.  The most important factor is pricing.  It takes the perfect balance of price and condition to sell quickly.  If either is out of balance the effect is a home on the market for too long.  Price based on the trends of homes sold in the past 4 months and stay competitive with those that are active on the market.  If the active listings are all overpriced based on the sold comparables, don’t make their same mistake.  They are still available for sale for a reason.  Get your home in the best condition (become the model home) and price it correctly and it well sell quickly.

If you are considering making a move, give me a call.  I can help you get your home sold!

Right on the mark Susan. I have seen way too many people spending good money on staging, but not setting a realistic price.  Staging will make your home sell quicker than your competition down the street, but it doesn't make your home worth more.

Susan - I agree with you on this, pretty houses get a lot of attention, but price will sell the house. Put them both together, and you get a quick sale.

Susan - good advice:  sellers need both.  This is a good reminder and I wish all your sellers the best of luck.

Susan- good to see ya back on AR.  Just cause your pretty doesn't mean you'll catch the right guy...same with a house.  Need to have it look good, smell good and priced at the price homes are selling at, not what they are listed at.

Sometimes just getting the people to do the things the stagers are recommending is enough of a challenge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
