With a large amount of homes still on the market, you should consider staging your home for the best sale opportunity.Â
Staging your home can be a good sales niche, especially if there are a
number of homes for sale
in your area.Â
Competition can be tough in the real estate market.
However, you can have the upper-hand on the competition with low-cost repairs and home staging.
Examine your home
The latest Inman News reports show many home sellers
can find areas of their home that need more attention.Â
Home sellers can do these small repairs and forgo a pre-listing inspection.Â
For example: Whatâ€™s beneath your carpets? Itâ€™s not unheard of to have hardwood floors
beneath the carpet. So, if you are one of those owners who has been
covering your hardwood floors with easier to maintain carpet, pull it up
and let those floors shine.Â Potential buyers are usually more interested if a home has hardwood floors.
the reports from Inman News say that dated paint on the interior or
exterior of the home can be unappealing to many home buyers.Â Therefore, update your homes paint with neutral colors like off-white to help it stand out from the rest.
Put away the clutter
You can improve your chances of selling your home faster if you declutter each room of the house.Â In
cases where you will be living in the home until it sells, you can make
the most improvement by making it look as neat and tidy as possible.Â Many potential home buyers prefer clean and neat homes over unkept and messy ones.Â
So, remove all your personal possessions and small items.Â You can box them up to keep them out of sight.Â Place the boxed items in a basement, attic or storage unit until you have sold the home.Â
Your real estate agent
can be very helpful in the home staging process.Â
Ask them for their honest opinion once you have the home decluttered.Â
They can help you position the furniture in each room so the room will look bigger.Â
And, they can show you other tricks-of-the-trade to maximize your selling price.
