I'm all dressed up ready for a Celebration - have you seen me?
I'm the newest house on the block just listed for sale!
As a Coral Springs REALTOR®, I love working with my Sellers to get their homes all "gussied" up to sell! When we hit the market, we shine, we sparkle and we smile in search of a new Buyer to call our home their home. (Okay, I know it's not "my" home but I do take care, as if it were "my" home)
How do you get a home ready for the celebration of selling it? It really is quite easy with a little elbow grease and knowing how to present the home. Presentation is key! When I look around at homes for sale that are competing with my Seller's home, I'm happy to see those homes where no effort has been put into presenting the home and marketing the home as it makes my job that much easier. These homes are the type of competition I welcome however, at the same time I feel bad for these Sellers, as they likely have no idea: poor photos, limited photos, photos taken of furniture (are we selling homes or furniture?), no lights turned on, small photos, and more.
Once my Seller's homes are all dressed up for the celebration, we take photos, a lot of photos, high quality photos with brightly lit rooms. My local Real Estate Board that supports those selling a home in Coral Springs, allow up to 25 photos now. I cheered for that change that happened not too long ago as it used to allow only 16 photos. How many photos do you think my Seller's homes have? Yes, you guessed it - 25 photos. Then we have Videos available for Buyers viewing pleasure.
As Real Estate Agents, think of that new home that you're listing for sale as a party, as a celebration. What do you do when you have a party or a celebration? Everything has to be just right, doesn't it? You get your home or event hall all spruced up to welcome your guests who will love what you did for the celebration and the same things go for that house you're trying to sell. You'll have a much better rate of success to treat each new home listing as a celebration.
I just recently listed a home for sale in the neighborhood of Cypress Run in Coral Springs; in just a few short days we've had about 20 showings and 5 offers so far, as we've been celebrating it hitting the market for sale here in Coral Springs Florida with a bang!
