Getting a house ready for sale is by no means no easy task. In fact, it’s dreadfully overwhelming and crazy tiring! The better prepared YOU are (emotionally detached), the better prepared the HOME is (great presentation), the better the PRIZE (investment) will be at the end. Make a list of needed fixes, unfinished projects and cleaning tasks. And did we mention, clean and declutter like a mad seller? Don’t fall victim to procrastination and don’t let these pre-selling chores daunt you. The best thing to do is roll your sleeves and just do it! It’s so rewarding to see those projects finally completed, a “new” welcoming and clean space…seeing it all shaping up to the show-ready look buyers love. Yes, a lot of work but your future self (the one with the big check at the end) will thank you.
A vacant property can be a challenge for buyers to see the true potential of the space. They may not be able to see how each space can be used or be turned off by irregular shaped spaces. Staging can provide the picture that will answer those questions and show them ways they may not have thought we work in that space. The value of Staging isn't just placing the furniture it is making it the home a buyer wants to make their own.

Your style is unique to you and so is your home. It is your style that made your house your home but now that you are selling, it needs to appeal to the masses. Buyers have there own style and the easier it is for them to see how that will work in your home the better. The more neutral the better when it comes to selling. That doesn't have to mean beige on beige, there are plenty of color options that will work and add warmth to the home.
We have said this before and you have probably heard this from many other sources, your pictures are your best advertisement. Not everyone uses a photographer to take the pictures so be picky about the photos of your home. You want the best representation online to help bring in the most potential buyers. Retake if necessary because this is the first impression must buyers will see.
It goes without saying that a clean home shows best in pictures but what about after the photos have been taken for the listing? You have put out the invitation so now you need to keep the house looking just as amazing as it did in the photos. Nothing turns off a buyer more than to walk into a home that they fell in love with in the photographs only to find a home that no longer resembles those images. Keeping the house clean and show ready can certainly help you seal the deal!
Seeing a house's potential can boost its chances for a successful sale. That is the very thing our savvy sellers knew they needed to focus on to get their home show-ready and reap big rewards. With chore list in hand, needed supplies and hours of hard work they set out to make of their rental property someone else's dream home by addressing fixes and adding cosmetic touches that would lure buyers. They believed their vacant home once touched up and brought to its former glory could greatly benefit from staging...and that's where we came in!
A beautiful home nonetheless, our team set out to kick it up a notch so prospective buyers would fully appreciate the home's potential. We accomplished a unified look by choosing furnishings that would make the most of the space and strategically placing pieces to maximize much desired square footage.
What great news it was when we learned that the first offer came in within six days on the market! Even in a hot market where houses sell quickly and for top dollar, it's still to sellers benefit to show that their home is worth every penny.
Without a doubt, presentation plays an important part in the selling process. Effort put in upfront usually means big rewards at the end. We couldn't be happier for our homeowners and the sale of their home!
Storage bins are great for putting way your stuff and it can help you keep organized but make sure they are put away in an organized manner. Storage Bins left out or jammed in a closet will give buyers the impression that there is no storage in home.
