Home Staging: Did Your Realtor Bring Up The Topic?

Selecting the Right Real Estate Professional

The decision you make about who will help you to market your property is a critical one.   You need to know that you can trust the professional that is handling this important emotional, financial and legal transaction for you. You are looking for a professional that:

  • Presents you with a comprehensive marketing plan
  • Understands your neighborhood/market area
  • Responds to your inquiries quickly and completely
  • Tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear
  • Stays current and understands emerging trends such as the importance of staging your property for sale.

If your real estate professional has talked to you about the importance of  preparing your property for the market, that is a clear sign that he or she is in touch with a major trendthe importance of staging your property for the marketplace.

Setting the Right Price

From conversations I have had with many real estate professionals over the years I have learned that pricing the property correctly is the number one factor in getting a property sold quickly. You can stage a property to perfection…but if it isn’t priced correctly it will not sell. It is absolutely critical that you price the house appropriately for the market right from the start.  Why?  There are a couple reasons:

  1. Your property will draw the most attention in the first weeks of listing. If the property is priced too high you will not get as many requests for showings as you would have received if the property was priced correctly.
  2. Once a property is on the market for awhile, buyers will think you are anxious to sell, and their offer price will reflect that.

It is important that you select a real estate professional that you have trust in, and that you trust his or her recommendation for selling price.  Even if your home is staged perfectly and in excellent repair if you go in with a price higher than the market will support, you are likely to have your property linger for a long time.

I work with many excellent Real Estate Professionals that are very aware of the importance of staging a property to sell.  If you need a referral I am happy to help.
