Tips on Selling Your Home From A Professional Home Stager
As a home stager in Atlanta, I've been successfully helping sellers sell their homes quickly. In fact, in December alone, we have 5 de-stagings already scheduled. All five homes are under contract. Great for the seller, the agent and for my stats. But, I digressed.
If your home is on the market, there are steps you can take to help you achieve a quick sale and help to achieve the price point you're looking for. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Ask and listen - Whether you're asking the agent or a friend, be prepared to truly listen to what advice they're giving you. For example, when an agent recommends that you reduce the amount of furniture pieces in your living room - listen and heed that advice. If you're asked your best friend on what "first impression" they get when visiting your home, listen carefully.
- Make repairs - Unless you're looking to get a rock bottom price for your home, you should address all items in need of repair. Trust me, buyers do NOT want to buy your problems. A broken dishwasher simply equates to further dollars the buyer has to put out or worse yet, they ask for a reduction in your price.
- Purge - It's likely you've heard this a dozen times, if not more. However, whether you're addressing a closet or the master bedroom, you need to create as much visual real estate as possible. The more "visual" real estate your home has to offer, the more enticing it is to the buyer.
This is a condo in downtown Atlanta. Based on the location, and based on information shared by the agent, the buyer would likely be young. As a result, most of the accessories we brought in supported a younger, more hip buyer. Results? Home was under contract in the first week it went on the market. And yes, it was a young first-time home buyer.
One of the easiest solutions for helping to sell quickly is to bring in a professional home stager. Trust me, a great stager is worth their weight in gold.
