You see articles and hear real estate agents referring to staging all the time. I would say that, consistently, this may be the number one topic when it comes to marketing your property for sale. In a strong seller’s market or a soft seller’s market, staging is still critical to help sellers to sell for the highest possible price.
Currently in this strong seller’s market, some sellers may be tempted to overlook this important step in preparing to sell their property. My advice: sellers should not overlook getting their house in “market ready” condition before listing it for sale. Unfortunately, they may not realize the value of staging until it is too late indicated by too many days on the market, lower than expected offers or limited to no showings/viewing by buyers.
When I meet with my seller clients, among the first conversations that we have includes preparing their house for marketing. Helping buyers to visualize themselves in a home is key to selling quickly and for the best price. My job as a Realtor is to help my seller clients “neutralize” their space, working with the items that the sellers may already have to stage and putting away items that the seller may overlook that could potentially be distracting to a buyer. A fresh set of eyes helps the seller to identify items in need of repair or identify solutions to create a brighter, fresher home.
