I was at my bank today taking care of some business and in talking with a bank employee he told me he had been looking to purchase a home. He asked me about my services and then began to tell me how important he could see what I had to offer sellers. You see looking from the buyers prospective he understood what I was talking about. He said he had just passed up a home because of paint color.
Painting is such a simple and inexpensive fix. But as he explained, I do not want to take the time to repaint. I have seen too many homes on the market that are move in ready. Why would I want to make an offer on something I need to do work on?
I told him...exactly, this is why staging is so important to sellers. Staging is not always about spending a lot of money. Sometimes you just need to make some simple and inexpensive changes to make a sell.
Unfortunately the sellers of the home that he refered to may have lost a sell because of paint color.
Calling in a professional stager can help you see your home from the buyers prospective.
