Lately I have been finding that the smart Realtors are calling for a professional Home Staging consultation on every listing.
Why the change?
A few reasons.
With so much competition on the market right now, they realize that to make their listing stand out from the crowd online they need to get their clients motivated to prepare their properties for sale.
Realtors know that if they list properties not ready to show they will see their marketing expense balloon out of control.Properties that have not been prepared do not show well online. Bright paint colours and vibrant patterns do not allow buyers online to see the features of a home.
Plus clients are letting their Realtors know that they do not want to languish on the market like they see so many other listings in their neighbourhood.
With over 80% of buyers looking online for their next house, clients that decide to follow the suggestions that I make end up with a property that shows well online resulting in traffic to their listings.
The main floor is very inviting and a family could see easily how this could be their new dream home.
In the perfect scenario, the vibrant colours in the children's rooms should have been neutralized to show better online. Overall the house shows very well and you can now see the features in each room of the house.
This property sold in 30 days for 98% of the list price. Another Staging success story.
