I am invited into people’s homes everyday to help them determine the value of their property. These homeowners are at various stages in the process of preparing to sell their homes. Some of them are just beginning to think about putting their home on the market, and some are ready to put the for sale sign up that day! But the one common thing I find with most homeowners is that they are not “Showing Ready”.
Have you seen those home improvement shows on TV with the properties that are perfectly staged? Well… it works! The old cliché, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is true in this case. In today’s world of online marketing where buyers can preview multiple homes from the comfort of their own living room, you have to grab their attention with great photos and a compelling description. Once you’ve made it past that initial screening and they schedule a showing, you have to be prepared for the in-person visit. Experts agree that homes that have been staged for photos and showings sell in almost half the time of homes that are not and they sell for substantially more money!!
We all become very comfortable with the way we live in our homes, but what most people don’t realize is that the way a home is lived in is not always the best way to show it for sale. I have extensive experience and will work with you to prepare a Home Enhancement Plan that includes inexpensive repairs and upgrades that will maximize the money you will get for your home. As many of you know, Melissa rehabs and flips houses and she can take your preparations for sale to the next level! She will assist with everything from choosing wall colors to making recommendations on de-cluttering and placement of furniture. These consultations are services we offer to our clients at no additional cost.
