Maximize Your Results When Selling Your Home by Following These Easy Home Staging Tips.
Easy Home Staging Tips:
- Obtain feedback from a friend, relative or neighbor – Your objective is to get the most honest feedback as possible. Start with the exterior and work your way through the entire house. If your home has a garage, basement and/or attic – make sure you address those places as well.
- Check out your competition – Even if it means driving around and writing down the addresses to view them online, you need to understand how your home compares to the others on the market in your area.
- Create a list, plan and prioritize – Preparing a home for the market can be a bit overwhelming; this is where a well thought out plan will help reduce the stress. As items are completed, check it out the list. Repairs should top your list. Buyers don’t want to own fixing problems in their newly purchased home.
- Think like a buyer, not a seller – Viewing your home as a buyers versus a seller can help reduce the emotional connection you may have with your home. This may be difficult for some sellers as the bond can be quite strong. However, you need to remember that homebuyers come into your home with an entirely different perspective.
