To draw people into your property, you will need good quality pictures. Typically pictures should be taken after the property is staged and cleaned. The reason pictures are so important is because most people look online first before coming out to view the properties.
I tend to stay away from MLS pictures because they usually make me angry.
Marketing your property is just as important as staging and using a good realtor. To market your property, you need to have leverage to draw people in. You can market your property on many different levels.
1. In person, your realtor should be doing at least 2-3 open houses a month until your property is sold.
2. Online, MLS is a great place for listing all home, however adding a post on Facebook or Instagram can attract more potential buyers.
3. Word of mouth, let your family and friends help you out by spreading the word that your home is for sale.
It is vital to use a good realtor when selling your home. There are so many realtors out there and they are not all the same. Please make sure to do your research before listing with just anyone.
You will want to make sure that you click with them and understand where they are coming from. Some realtors will just put a for sale sign up and let it sit till it sells. Others will have open houses every weekend until it is sold. These two types of realtors are VERY different. So how do you know if the realtor is good?
1. Get a referral from a trusted friend or colleague .
2. Do your research, view other listings and make sure the online pictures are of good quality
3. Read reviews on the realtors that you are interested in.
You don’t want to waste your time when selling a house; make sure a good realtor has your back.
Spring and early summer are typically buyers markets. This is where there are tons of inventory (homes) to choose from. This month we are highlighting how to stand out amongst other homes in your area.
First and most important is to stage the property. This helps highlight and showcase the home in the best light. It will help you stand out.
Did you know 9 out of 10 potential buyers do not know what to do with an empty space?They won’t know if the space is big enough for a queen or king bed and they will never bring a measuring tape with them.
Awkward spaces can be any space your not quite sure how to use. This could be a nook under the stairs, a small landing at the top of the stairs, a small corner. If you have to think about it, then it should be staged.
All homes have these areas that you’re not quite sure what to do with. This is where stagers can help. We have the creativity and knowledge to address and set up these spaces
Master bedrooms should feel like a spa. Do you come home after a long day and look forward to crawling into bed? Do you ever enjoy a cup of coffee in bed on a Saturday or Sunday morning? Now picture how that feels.
That feeling is what we try to incorporate into our Master Bedroom staging. A sense of calm and relaxation. Master bedrooms are havens to many and that’s how it should be set up when selling your home.
