Spring is Sprung, the Grass is Ris, I Wonder Where the Buyers Is?

By
Home Stager with Outstanding Staging
Yes, it is Spring - the season of hope eternal, bursting forth anew! Make the most of it - especially if you are planning to sell your house or an investment property. Some tips for those of you who want (or need) to sell as fast a possible, for the best return...

1. Find yourself a reliable, proactive real estate agent who insists on a consultation with a professional stager, knowing that staging will bring out the best value in your property. Ask around for agent referrals and check out their websites. Or ask a stager to refer you to an agent.

2. With your selected agent's guidance, set a price to grab the interest of potential buyers in your locale. Think, "What the market will (now) bear," not what you paid or owe.

3. Stage your home or building to turn it from nice but "run of the mill" to "Wow I'd better grab this one now before someone else bids on it." Think, "Move-in condition." A professional stager will recommend the changes that will net you the most in return for your investment.

4. Post the pictures online after you have staged, or make sure your stager or real estate agent does it. Most people search online first for properties, so your pictures must look great there! A good stager can supply you or your agent with great photos.

5. Make it your top priority to get the sale done - keep your place clean and presentable, be available to show, and accept and act on the professional advice you're paying for.

Best wishes to you for a successful sale and a new phase in your life in your new place!

Nice post Lin: There is something "renewing" about spring isn't there? Great time to sell, buy and for reluctant Realtors to try to a new tool - home staging!

Thank you all for your comments. By the way, here's the silly poem that inspired my blog's title:

"Spring is sprung, The grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is. They say the birds is on the wing.
Isn't that absurd? I had always thought, the wing was on the bird." - Anonymous

Happy Spring to you all!   :) Lin

Very important advice!  So many sellers get the agent and even the stager and then don't keep the house in "showing" condition.  It's so important to make sure they follow through until the house is sold.
