Don't Try Home Staging To Get Your House Sold

Staging is critical to sell a listing for more money and you'll sell quicker than the average home.  It always amazes me how folks will look at the furnishings and not the walls.  Remove the furniture and it looks stark, baren, and the colors of the painted walls stand out in a sad fashion!

Original content by Sharon Tara

Home staging is often a last resort strategy, used when all else fails.  Too many sellers and Realtors take a "wait and see" attitude when it comes to staging and it ends up costing them thousands of dollars.

Most sellers say they are serious about selling their home, but haven't even scratched the surface when it comes to preparation and presentation of their product for sale. 

don't tryWhen sellers underestimate what needs to be done in preparation and over value when determining their selling price, Realtors find themselves listing with their hands tied, based on the seller's unrealistic expectations.

 

"We'll see how it goes"

"We'll give it a month"

"We'll have to lower the price"

 then, finally... 

  "Maybe we should try staging"  

 

Home staging is not something to be "tried."  Home staging is preparation...

To prepare, by definition "to put in proper condition or readiness", is done first not last.  If you really are serious about selling and want to make the best impression on potential buyers, work smart right from the beginning.  Have a home staging consultation, prior to listing instead of trying staging later.

Yes Sharon, it is a great write.  Unfortunately, this was my first re-blog and I didn't understand it wouldn't include you in the article.  So sorry for that.  Will work next time to give you the credit.  I think you did an awesome job and I hope that others will see your reply and understand it wasn't my intention not to give you credit!
