Motivating buyers to stage their home

By
Real Estate Agent with Centruy 21 Hudson Realtors
The Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area housing market is still in somewhat of a slump, compared to previous years. I hate to have listings that are getting good activity, past on and buyers picking another home when the sellers could spend one weekend cleaning up and staging their home to stand out. Many of the things sellers could do don't take a lot of time, effort or money. It is so hard to get some sellers to understand that a little sprucing up and de-cluttering could make the difference in a buyer making an offer to them instead of the house down the street. Of course "curb appeal" can get them in the door, but the total package is what will bring the offers. I tell buyers that location can't be changed but the appearance of their home can. I also have an extensive staging kit that I use in vacant homes. It' amazing how a few simple and tasteful accessories can make such a difference in the feel of a home.
