Selling a house in a difficult location? Can home staging help?

Home Stager with Home Star Staging

Selling a house in a difficult location?

Have you considered other ways to market the property besides reducing the price?

While we cannot change the location of a property we can improve the appeal to buyers if the property is indeed in good condition.

There are always buyers looking in certain locations & neighborhoods (obviously this seller/possibly you purchased the property) and the area your property is located and listed will be one of them.

If however there are more problems with the property than the location, for example;

  • perhaps it is very dated outside/inside
  • it lacks good curb appeal
  • furnishings and decor reflect too personal of a choice
  • the property needs upgrades compared to the comps in the neighborhood
  • the house has foundation or roof issues or other major areas of concern 

I would, at the very minimum, recommend a home staging consultation (and even a pre-list home inspection for the major areas of concern) and suggest to invest your dollars on improvements to address problem areas of the home (if any). A professional home stager can provide you with a cost effective report to show you where best to invest your money for selling your property.

Home Staging isn't about covering up flaws or defects but enhancing the home's best features.

Home staging for any location is a wise investment.

Absolutely!  I worked for a different builder in my past and had a home we just could not sell.  It sat and sat.  We had it staged and whoooosh!  It sold the very next weekend.  Home stagers (particularly good ones like Karen) are worth their weight in GOLD!  Try it today.  It worked for me!

Totally agree!  We can't do anything about the location but we can make the home shine wherever it is.
