I read this morning about how an investor asked a home staging professional about just putting some furniture in a home they had for sale.
While it is pretty much accepted by most real estate professionals that it is easier to sell a home with furniture than an empty house sometimes there is more needed than just furniture.
Sellers NEED to create a positive "wow" when buyers walk in and not a "I remember when..." mindset!
Does your home need some updating before you place it on the market?
A little updating can do so much for your house. And it does not need to be expensive updating like…
- some neutral paint to replace your high personalized colors (or wallpaper),
- new carpeting instead of that shag,
- counter tops – silestone, quartz, granite, solid surface are expected today instead of old worn laminate,
- appliances - newer, energy efficient.
Putting furniture in a house that otherwise needs some preparation is like the old saying about putting lipstick on a pig. If a home is more than a few years old I suggest sellers also consider a pre-listing home inspection?
