Staging your home to attract buyers.

There is a huge amount of information out there relating to staging your home to get it ready for sale. It’s always best to consult a Real Estate Professional to discuss your needs and wants and to get the best advice. Real Estate Brokers and Sales Representatives have many referral contacts that may help you ready your home for the market. After all we’ve been in the business and know what the buyers will respond to and what turns them away. It is a very critical balance. A few suggestions are; declutter your home by storing away most personal items and a lot of everyday items that fill the rooms in your home and make the rooms appear smaller. It may be necessary to rent a storage unit, temporarily, to accomplish this huge task. Also consider a consultation with a staging professional. Third party advice may help you balance the task at hand.  A fresh coat of paint with neutral colours isn’t a bad idea either. A lot of these hints and suggestions are to your advantage. It may seem like a lot of work at the beginning, but it pays off when your home is finally listed on the market for showing. A well presented home is a sold home at or close to asking price. Also consider a home warranty on your homes internal working systems. This involves a home inspection and an insurance policy placed on your home at a reasonable cost to the homeowner. You will reap the rewards to a properly staged and insured home. Having an advantage over competing listings is huge in todays marketplace. Let your home shine!
