How to Sell Your Home Fast for the Highest Price Possible


Have you ever wondered why some houses seem to sell so fast for top dollar while others just keep sitting around? There are 3 critical factors that will determine if your home will quickly attract that dream buyer or if you're destined for months of showings and painful price reductions.

Contrary to what most people have been told, it's NOT Location, Location, Location.  It's Price, Condition and Location that matter most.  The good news is that unlike location which, you can't change, you have full control over the price you set and the condition of your home. In fact, there is a direct correlation between the two. It's pretty simple, the better the condition the higher the price!

That's why I believe the condition or, how your home looks, is above all, the most critical factor you can influence when preparing your home to sell. We find that our clients often struggle to make the changes, or even know what changes to make, to have their home shine. That's why we highly recommend professional staging. 

Our number one goal is to help our clients sell their home quickly and for the highest price possible. We have seen first-hand the power of staging to help sell homes. However, because there is an extra expense associated with staging, we think it's important for you to understand why we recommend it.  
  1. BEAT THE COMPETITION
    Your home is competing for potential buyers with every other house on the market. Some of these homes will be very similar to yours. Staging can separate your home and make it stand out from other comparable homes on the market.

  2. CREATE AN EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE
    We want people to have an emotional experience when viewing your home. Staging can be the difference between, 'Sure, this house is nice' and 'Oh my goodness...I LOVE IT'

  3. INCREASE PERCEIVED VALUE
    Staging can actually make the home appear to be worth more than the 'comps' say it is. This means you can attract higher offers than you might otherwise.


Staging Stats:

3 Months - Un-staged homes (on average) take 3 months longer to sell than staged homes
 
20% More - Buyers will often times offer 1-5% (and even up to 20%) more for staged homes than similar un-staged homes.
 
83% of buyers's agents say that staging makes it easier for buyers to 'visualize' the property as their future home.
