Want Your House Sold YESTERDAY?

April 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

Are you thinking of selling your home but don't know where to start?Or do you already have your home on the market and want it sold...YESTERDAY?Do you know there are some simple things you can do to make it happen?No matter if it is a buyers' market or a sellers' market, you need to outshine the competition to sell faster and for money than the competing homes on the market.The first step is to get a consultation from a reputable home stager in your area.A stager will guide you in the right direction and walk you through the process of preparing your home to sell.

There are three factors which determine the marketability of your house:location, price and condition. Obviously, the location cannot be changed so the only two variables are the price and condition...and they are directly dependent on each other. Statistics show that staged homes sell in about half the time and generally speaking, for more money than a comparable unstaged home.

Home stagers are trained to prepare homes so that they appeal to the broadest possible range of buyers in the target market.This greatly increases the probability that they will sell quickly and for top dollar. Home staging does not have to cost a lot of money.In fact, recent statistics show that the ROI for staging your home is about 300%.And you can be sure that your investment to stage your home will be less than your first price reduction if you don't stage.

The best time to have your home staged is BEFORE it goes on the market for three reasons:

Firstly, if your home has been made 'market ready', the listing price may be set higher, which means your selling price will be higher.

Secondly, you will have beautiful photos for the MLS listing or for your own ads....and since over 90% of buyers in Canada start their search for a new home on the internet, those photos are your 'first impression' photos. You have only one chance to make a WOW impression!

Thirdly, you will take advantage of the momentum that happens when there is a new listing.Some people like to try the market first without staging and if it doesn't sell, then stage it.However, the most interested people have already seen the houseand most are unlikely to come back after it has been staged.
