You should consider staging your home to sell. In this difficult Sellers Market, the homes that are priced well and show well are the homes that sell first. Homes that are staged, to look 'warm and inviting' give Buyers an emotional attachment to your home. Why do you think Builders spend money to hire professional designers to showcase their models? They would never sell upgrades out of a book. As a homeowner, you want to put your best foot forward to make their first impression the best. Remember, a Buyer usually makes a decision about your home within the first 30 seconds of walking in the door. Don't lose them before they reach the backyard.
Stage your home with up to date furnishings, decor, light fixtures, and accessories. Make your home show better than all the other homes on the market, and you will get more traffic, interested buyers, and most importantly..an offer before your competition.
You can hire a decorator or a professional stager to assist you in those efforts.
Best of luck,
