Remember when selling your home that potential buyers are drawn to homes that appeal to them!  Stage your home for buyers who view it online and in person to make sure that your home's first impression is a great one. Consult with a professional home stager in your area for helpful tips to make your home look its very best.

Sharon Tara's post gives good advice on how staging/presentation can affect your bottom line.  

 

Original content by Sharon Tara

When listing your home for sale, it's important to understand that price is determined by your local market. The most you will receive for your house is the price that someone is willing to pay....the price that someone believes your house is worth. Perception is key.

This is why Home Stagers go on and on about visual and emotional appeal and creating perceived value.

This is why preparation and presentation are so important. When you get your house ready to show, you should be thinking of it as getting it ready to impress.  

 

The way you present your home for sale is either going to justify the price or justify a price reduction!

 

It's going to go one of two ways....

Potential buyers will be impressed by the condition of your home, see the value, and believe it's worth the asking price.

or

Potential buyers will use the condition of your home as a means of getting the price reduced.

 

You are in control.  As much as it may seem like you aren't in control of the situation, you actually are.

Sellers who are faced with price reductions are usually the sellers who weren't willing to make necessary improvements or sellers who priced too high in the first place.

I know....there are exceptions....but generally speaking price and presentation are key.

As you prepare your house for sale remember you are working towards the end goal of a justified price!

Great point and so very true.  I find a lot of people think their home is worth much more than what the market will allow.  It's an emotional time for homeowners and those that stage and listen to the market evaluation of a great realtor typically nail it and do well.

Enjoy the holiday season Maureen.

Yup, but some will not take up the gauntlet! Instead, we (as realtors) have the fingers pointed at us. I have tried to get some staging done professionally at a few of my vacation homes out here and people won't "go there". I have had to stage them myself, even using my own decor items. I can also attest to those who really are slobs and even when you gently suggest "clean up" their idea of it and ours are two different things!!

Aloha Maureen, the title was perfect and drew me in. Great re-blog and to the point. Although, as Sharon pointed out there are exceptions,

 

The way you present your home for sale is either going to justify the price or justify a price reduction!

 

 

This inevitable choice faced by the buyer is not hyperbole, people will either see the value and be willing to pay for it or they will dicker the price down.

Preparing your property for sale

great share today Maureen. As Sharon has outlined, selling is the time for your home to shine and attract buyers.  I explain it is like a wedding day for your house. Every little detail needs to be just right to show value in every square foot of your home for sale.

I like your analogy Michelle!  There are many steps to preparing a home for sale, and our job is to guide sellers through them (or they can also choose a reduced price).  Sharon's post really outlined it well.
