Staging a home is a great way to attract buyers!
Over the years, house staging, or the art of showing off the features of your home, has become a smart strategy for many savvy homeowners. Simply put, staging is the same as dressing up your home in its Sunday best!
Staging can range from adding little things here or there to hiring a decorating professional. But sometimes staging is as much about what not to do or what to correct.
I've included a list of the most common homebuyer turn-offs. They can really make difference in the length of time a house is listed on the market. As always, I'm available and happy to assist if you have any questions.
Here They Are: The Top Seven Sales Killers That May Keep Your Home From Selling!
An Unkempt Lawn – maybe that’s why you just see drive by‘s but now stopping outside to look
Chipping or Peeling Paint – the buyer is thinking “work to do” often gets a low offer
Worn or Dirty Carpets and Flooring – buyer is thinking” wow, big expense right away”
Poor Housekeeping-Dust, Stains, and Dirt – this combined with the next two will result in the buyer making a fast exit
Junk, Clutter, and Disorganization
Unpleasant Odors-Pets, Tobacco, and Garbage
Unusual or Odd Paint Colors- anything like this will distract the potential buyer from seeing the true beauty or value of your home; you want your spaces neutral
