When Selling Your Home

Your home becomes a house that is a product on the market and it must be packaged more beautifully than any other home.

Begin to emotionally detach yourself from your home. View your home through a buyer's eye... what do you see?

How to begin to create a Staged Home:

  1. De-Personalize: We do this so that anyone who walks through your home will feel as though they are walking into their new home, not YOUR home. We also do this so everyone can connect with the house, regardless of race or ethnicity.
  2. De-Clutter: Buyers need to have enough room to be able to visually imagine their belongings in the space. We literally need to create enough space for this to happen. Also, square footage equals equity. If much of your square footage is being eaten by too much furniture, then you are literally eating the equity out of your home and lowering it's worth which is preventing it from being sold at the asking price.
  3. Neutralize: Neutralizing is the safest way to appeal to most of the buyers that view your property. We want you home to appeal to people with varying tastes, not just those who have the same tastes as you.
  4. Evoke Emotions: Homes are purchased on emotions. Statistics tell us that professionally Staged Homes are purchased even when they do not meet the Home Buyers main criteria for buying a home. Homes need to feel fresh, updated, peaceful, orderly and beautiful.
  5. Ease: Buyers want a "Turn Key" home. This is a home that does not need any major work done for it to be livable. Most new Buyers will want to add there personal touches to a home but they want to be able to live with what currently exists until they can personalize it to suit them. And the more a buyer has to change in a potential new home, the less likely they are to buy it.

How buyers shop for homes:

  1. Internet photos: If the photos that represent your home over the internet are not appealing, they will not draw potential buyers. "Staged" photos draw the most buyers as they are the most appealing.
  2. Curb Appeal: Once a buyer is in front of the house, they make the decision to get out and view the house OR to view the other houses in the neighborhood.
  3. First Impression: Home Buyers decide within 5 seconds of entering the home whether this is their potential new home.
  4. Kitchen: This is the most important room. This is what sells the home.
  5. Master Suite
  6. Bathrooms
