How You Respond To Buyer Feedback Will Determine How Fast You Sell Your House

Home Stager with Interiors by Marianne Cherico

I would like to share this excellent post from Sharon Tara-home stager in New Hampshire-on the importance of feedback when marketing a home for sale.

Original content by Sharon Tara

Your response to buyer feedback will determine how fast you will sell your house.  Your house is a product for sale, and when buyers look at it and criticize it, you can't take it personally.

Karen Fiddler, a Realtor in Mission Viejo, California, wrote a great post this morning about agents calling for feedback on their listings.  I think Karen has a great message here.

If you can't handle the answer, then don't ask the question!

More importantly, from a home staging viewpoint...use the information you receive from agents after a showing to make your product more appealing to future potential buyers. 

Don't consider negative feedback a personal attack - consider it valuable insight and use that information to improve your property.  Correct the problem so it isn't an issue for the next potential buyer.

The best way to avoid negative feedback is to have your house "show ready" prior to listing.  

 A consult with a professional home stager will:

  1. Give you all the information you need to get your product market ready
  2. Spare you the negative feedback from potential buyers
  3. Decrease your odds of facing multiple price reductions

The negative aspects of your house will get addressed one way or another.

It will cost you a lot less to address the negative with a stager rather than a buyer.
