It's Almost Spring and It's Time To Stage Your Home

By
Home Stager with Design To Market LLC

I have to let the cat out of the bag.  I am the owner of Design To Market Home Staging in Cincinnati (that's not the secret!) and my phone is ringing off the hook with calls to consult with prospective staging clients. 

It might seem like the ice storm we had in Cincinnati this morning is enough to confirm that we are in for a few more months of winter but don't be fooled...the homeowner down the street that seems to be quietly enjoying the slower pace of winter is working like crazy to put a perfectly prepared home on the market.  So, if your goal is to successfully sell your home this spring and to earn top dollar; you better get to work!

According to a recently released National Association of Realtor study, 86% percent of home buyers are shopping on the web for weeks at a time determining which homes warrant a showing.  If you plan to compete effectively in this market, it is critical that you stand up to the competition.  Sellers have gotten smart and buyers have gotten even smarter!  The expectations are high and it is critical that you meet them in order to sell your home. 

Which of these shots is most likely to sell this home?

Hi Jo: Very good point. Unless your home is in perfect condition, now is a good time to book a consultation with a professional home stager so you can get your home in perfect selling condition. It looks like you did a lot of work in the home in the photos. The after photo looks so much more open and inviting.

Jo - Good point to be made.  The top photo looks very scary - like a dungeon, I wouldn't go for a look.

Jo, you are exactly right, now is the time for people to get to work on their houses if they plan to sell this spring. Great post.

Spring is here!  6 inches of snow fell today but smart sellers are working to be ready to put the sign in their yard!

I like your perspective.  Keep helping us get these houses sold!  Looks like we may have finally hit the price bottom in the market.  I blogged on that point yesterday and today.  Good news for all of us. 

Thanks!
