What do your Model Homes say to buyers?

By
Home Stager with Egan Design Group Inc.
In this extreme market it is vital to put our best foot forward. We all know the saying that "you never get a second chance to make a first impression". I know money is tight and sometimes the look of our model home interior may not seem to be top priority, but my experience says otherwise. It is important for a prospective buyer to know that your construction is of high quality and up to date. If your model decor is old, dated and worn or possibly extremely cheap looking this can be transferred in the buyer's mind that the construction is the same. Now is a vital time to freshen and update any model home you have. A fresh coat of paint, some new accessories, replacing a faded chair. These simple moves can make a big difference in the perceived value in a buyer's eyes. Your model home is your number one marketing tool. Use it to it's ultimate advantage.

I agree as things get tight the best start to shine. This goes for realtors also.
