Homes Staged by The Letschin Team of Long and Foster
Want to sell your home for more than your neighbor? Well, staging is the secret weapon. Staging a home can help you set your home apart from your competition. In a competitive real estate market, a seller who differentiates their home from the other homes for sale, can be the difference on which home a buyer chooses to purchase. Buyers peruse dozens of homes and photos online and if they don’t like how a home looks online it doesn’t even make the list of homes for them to tour.
So what is staging? Staging is the art of making your home as appealing as possible to today’s buyers . A variety of techniques can be used to but most often it involves de-cluttering, re-arranging, re-accessorizing, repairing, de-personalizing and neutralizing the home’s interior and exterior décors. De-cluttering, fresh paint, removing family photos, as well as arranging furniture, accessories and art in the most appealing way are common tricks in staging a home. The goal is to make the home look warm and inviting, allowing buyers to visualize the possibilities for the space. When buyers can make an emotional connection to the house and see themselves living there, they are ready to buy.
When selling a home it’s important for the homeowner to understand their home is a product, that must be marketed and merchandised properly. How would you sell your car? Or have your kid dress for school picture day? Or present yourself on a job interview? Most of you would pay close attention to the details to reap the rewards of more money for your car, a great photo to share with the world, or getting the call you’re hired. So, why should selling a home be any different? If you want to sell quickly at the highest price your priority should be paying attention to the home’s details.
By having a home properly prepared for sale, you don’t have to wait a long time for the right offer, which means you don’t have to sit on the market constantly trying to upkeep the space. As a certified stager and having an interior design background, Kim provides staging as a complimentary service to all her clients. We believe it is that important in the selling process.
