Spring is traditionally the hot real estate market season. It is the time of year to expect an increase in market activity. With the shortage of inventory most states have been experiencing buyers are anxious for some new listings.
Although it's been a sellers' market for some time now, not all houses are moving as fast as their sellers would like. It's not wise to assume buyers will overlook the obvious... a lack of cleanliness and a lack of maintenance.
Not all listings are lucky enough to see a bidding war.
Preparation and presentation are always key to a faster sale.
Make sure your home is 100% "show ready" PRIOR to listing.
Your best chance at getting closest to your asking price is within the first two weeks of listing.
You only get one shot at the "just listed" buzz that is generated when a new home comes on the market.
Your house must be at it's ideal showing condition at that time.
Remember curb appeal?
Today first impressions aren't made at the curb....they are made online.
MLS pictures are one of your most powerful marketing tools because almost all potential buyers start their search online. It's the photos of your home that will determine whether or not buyers schedule a showing.
The best possible photos, photos with both visual and emotional appeal, require more than just a good photographer. They require strategic preparation.
Scheduling a Home Staging Consult with an experienced professional home stager and following their advice will result in the best photos.
A Home Staging Consult doesn't guarantee your home will sell.
A Home Staging Consult guarantees your home will show at its very best!
