3 Reasons Why Sellers Shouldn't Play the Wait and See Game
If you’re planning on selling your home or even have it on the market now, you have probably heard of home staging. And if you’re like so many sellers, you’re thinking ...I’ll give it a month or so and then if it doesn’t sell, I’ll think about staging it.
Below are 3 reasons why you need to stage your home BEFORE you put that For Sale sign in the front yard.
You can’t sell your home if no one wants to look at it.
We all know that everything begins on the Internet these days. Buyers will look online and if your property has few photos, exterior shots only, or the ones they see don’t say “I could be your next home.” then they’re not very likely to add it to the short list they give to their agent.
Result: missed opportunities to sell your home.
2. Once an agent or a potential buyer has seen your un-staged home, that image is what will stick with them.
Yes, you can always stage your home but you may not get a second chance with the agents and buyers who have already seen your property. Even in a seller’s market, many won’t want to waste their time seeing a property they’ve already seen.
Result: More missed opportunities.
3. The longer your home is on the market, it is like stale bread on a shelf.
Agents can see how long a home has been on the market and trust me, all buyers want to know. They will wonder what is wrong with the property.
Result: More possible missed opportunities.
Staging doesn’t have to break your budget or disrupt your lifestyle. Just don’t play the Wait and See game!
