My Property is Vacant-Why Do I Need a Consultation?
Sellers don’t often think of investing in a home staging consultation especially if their property is vacant.
However, a consultation could save you money, or at least give you some direction about where your funds should go to help protect the investment you have in your home.
If my home is vacant, couldn’t I just get some furniture and accessories for each room?
A consultation will show you what you need to do to maximize every showing you have. It will point out what buyers will notice that can enhance your sale or could derail it.
And...it’s not just about moving furniture around.
What are some things that a vacant home staging will point out if there’s no furniture???
~Paint-your property may need a good fresh coat of paint or one that will appeal to all buyers
~Curb appeal-poorly maintained lawns and vegetation can turn buyers away before they even stop the car.
~Deferred maintenance-no amount of furniture can hide projects that you’ve been postponing for years. A roof that needs to be replaced, broken tile, non-working lights, missing light fixtures...all become glaringly evident when there’s nothing else for the buyer to look at.
~Lack of basic updates-a buyer may not dismiss considering your property but any offering price will take into consideration what it will cost them to update your property to their satisfaction
What we can suggest…
~If hiring someone to stage your property is not in your budget, we can draw up a game plan for you to follow to purchase items that will help with the sale
~We can help you prioritize where you need to invest and what items can be tackled if your time and budget allow.
Staging isn’t a one size fits all solution. And, vacant homes do sell.
To maximize the investment you’ve already made in your property, hire a local home staging professional.
