Stagers advice  smaller pic

Gone are the days when you could simply hang a for-sale sign in front of your house and wait for offers. In today’s real estate market, home staging is fast becoming a necessary part of the selling process. Home staging isn’t decorating; it’s not about your personal style or taste. It’s simply anything you do to prepare your home for sale. Buyers don’t want your personality or taste. They want to put their own preferences into their new home. By neutralizing, depersonalizing, de-cluttering and making cost-effective updates, you’ll be presenting a home that’s move-in ready and just what buyers are looking for.

Many sellers ask why they should bother getting their home ready before they sell it. After all, they’re moving out and they’d rather let the buyer fix up the home. They don’t want to spend any more money or invest any more time in their home.

Unfortunately, the consequence of this attitude and lack of action is often that no one will purchase the property, let alone make an offer to buy it, unless the price is greatly reduced. Your home is probably your largest investment. Why wouldn’t you want to get as much as it’s worth? By doing nothing to present your home, you’ll be leaving money on the table. Instead, you should make your house work for you, so you’ll be able to purchase your next home.

Savvy sellers are catching on to the fact that they need to work closely with REALTORS®, home stagers and other professionals to make the sale of their home as smooth and profitable as possible. And after all, isn’t that your goal too?
