When deciding to put your home on the market, this first step is vitally important to get in the right mindset to objectively assess your house and begin the process.
Visit one of the online home sale sites and look at properties in your neighborhood. Are there homes that you naturally want to continue to look at? Are there homes that you are quickly inclined to pass on? If you found yourself lingering on a home and looking at photos, what was it that drew you to this home? What was it that made you want to quickly leave a home’s listing? It’s likely you’ve come to the conclusion that the homes that were updated and Staged are the ones that drew you in and made you want to see more while the ones that were outdated and not Staged were the ones that made you want to quickly say, “NEXT”, and quickly move on. This is exactly what people will be doing when they see your home listed on these same sites because a HIGH percentage of people begin their new home search online. Don’t limit your audience by not Staging your home. Even if you decide not to update your home, Staging is still so very important because it creates a visually pleasing photo, provided you get professional photos taken (that’s a whole other post!). And on the off-chance you get someone that can see past the unstaged photos, those are the people that will be giving you low-ball offers. Don’t leave money on the table by not Staging your home.
