Prepare and Stage your home for selling
Know what sells homes fast and returns top dollar
Preparing your home for selling is about getting the greatest bang for the buck invested. Staging can be as simple as displaying furniture and possessions in an attractive arrangement highlighting the features of your home or more aggressive improvements that eliminate negatives that detract from the home. See more below.
Setting the market price
There is always urgency when a home first hits the market. Buyers and sellers see the most activity and the greatest potential for a transaction at the highest price in the first 30 days. Staging will exponentially improve your chances to sell faster and at higher prices. The best time to prepare and stage your home is before the first buyer walks through the door. Removing the negatives with minor improvements makes "wow factors" not negotiating points! The opening price can be set higher, the excitement and expectations will be at the highest levels making the best possible outcome.
Real estate agents are professionals that truly know your local market and can determine a realistic asking price based on the real and perceived value of your home's best selling features.

Preparing your home for sale
Manicured lawns, fresh mulch, trimmed shrubs and a beautiful entrance door makes a statement that sets the tone before the buyer even sets foot inside the home.
Set the scene and have your buyers already envisioning living in this well maintained home.
The inside now needs the same touch of elegance to complete the sale. Staging your home for sale means depersonalizing it so buyers can see themselves living in the home inside and out.
Friends and family love to see the personal pictures and awards of your family on the walls however potential buyers need to see themselves living in the home. Take down all the personal items so the beauty and features of your home shows through.
Deep cleaning, fresh paint and reducing clutter is key to showing your home at it's best. Minor upgrades or remodeling are upfront investments of well spent funds necessary to sell the home at a greater market price. This is a short term investment with higher returns upon sale.

Return on investment staging
"Ready to move in homes" sell the fastest with offers much closer to the asking price, sometimes generation enough interest to earn multiple competing bids driving the price beyond expectations.
Comfortably lived in homes that are staged often include some minor upgrades like a new backsplash in the kitchen with new fixtures as well as new carpeting in the bedroom have the appearance of a "Ready to move in home" receiving offers closer to the asking price.
Bargain hunter buyers willing to do the renovation work make deeply reduced offers to sellers that more than offset the cost of renovations. These buyers use all the negatives to negotiate lower and lower prices. The longer the house sits unsold the more the offers drop in price and frequency.
Getting a reasonable return for the upgrade investment depends greatly on factors in the local home market. Soap, water and paint are by far the greatest return on investment for staging however the right upgrades have the greatest impact. Missing trim pieces, cracked tiles and worn flooring set a mental image with buyers that may cost the sale. A more extreme example would be a three bedroom home sharing one bathroom. This home has very little chance of being considered however adding a second bathroom or powder room makes the home functional, desirable and salable. The improvements change the dynamics and delivers a return.
