Home Staging

Do you want to sell your house fast…and I mean really fast? Then set a rock-bottom price lower than anybody else, and be sure to also negotiate your agent’s commission, because it’s not going to be that hard to sell your house.
Now if you want to sell your house fast and get the most money for it, …then you need a real estate professional with a plan. Someone who can help get your house “Staged!” As an Accredited Home-Staging Specialist (AHS), I can provide this valuable service if you list with me.
The art of Staging is a process. It’s about presenting your home in the most optimum light and in the most appealing state to the biggest majority of homebuyers. Staging isn’t terribly difficult or costly, but it takes a trained professional to help a seller view their home objectively, zeroing in on the areas that will excite a potential buyer.
To see an example of an effective staged home, take a minute and go visit a model home in a new community or housing development. You will see that decorating a model home is expensive, but every homebuilder is willing to stage their model homes properly because a staged home sell faster. So why not copy what the homebuilders do and profit from the knowledge and services of a AHS accredited agent to get your own home staged?

clean CLEAN. Your home must shine! Do it yourself or hire a cleaning crew. While your house is for sale it’s probably a pretty good investment to have a cleaner come in every week. Most cleaners do not do windows, so have them professionally cleaned inside and out and be prepared to redo the windows after major storms.
repair or replace REPAIR or REPLACE. Staging is not to hide defects or items in need of repair. Everything must be inspection condition. If the buyer does not initially see the problem, a trained and thorough inspector will.
declutter DE-CLUTTER. This can be the biggest challenge for a homeowner, but as an AHS Designee it’s something I can help you with the most. Potential buyers must be able to see your home and be able to imagine themselves living in your home. De-Cluttering helps accomplish this.
depersonalize DE-PERSONALIZE. Remove objects that your potential buyers won’t be able to identify with and styles that are not neutral. For example, political and religious items may turn off whole groups of buyers. Special colors and themes need to be removed as well. Buying a home is an emotional decision, and you want potential buyers to make an emotional connection with your home by being able to “see” themselves in it.
