I can also advise on what needs to be done to get your house ready for the market. This could be as simple as de-cluttering and depersonalizing your home to hiring a professional home stager to attract more buyers and to get top dollar for your property. Remember, first impressions count. [/bsf-info-box][bsf-info-box icon_type=”selector” icon=”Defaults-check” img_width=”48″ icon_size=”32″ icon_color=”#08122e” icon_style=”none” icon_color_bg=”#ffffff” icon_color_border=”#333333″ icon_border_size=”1″ icon_border_radius=”500″ icon_border_spacing=”50″ title=”Consider hiring a luxury home staging company ” read_more=”none” read_text=”Read More” hover_effect=”style_2″ pos=”default”]Home staging can be a powerful marketing tool. Staging highlights the best features of your property using simple design principles and thoughtful décor. Ultimately, it helps your house appeal to the broadest buying audience possible. Statistics show a staged home is likely to sell faster and sometimes garners a higher purchase price than a non-staged home. Before you officially list your home, we should discuss whether your home would benefit from professional home staging.[/bsf-info-box][bsf-info-box icon_type=”selector” icon=”Defaults-check” img_width=”48″ icon_size=”32″ icon_color=”#08122e” icon_style=”none” icon_color_bg=”#ffffff” icon_color_border=”#333333″ icon_border_size=”1″ icon_border_radius=”500″ icon_border_spacing=”50″ title=”Set a Listing Price ” read_more=”none” read_text=”Read More” hover_effect=”style_2″ pos=”default”]The next step in putting your home on the market is also the most crucial—determining the listing price. If the listing price is set too high, you run the risk of buyers not being interested in your home. If you set the price too low, you may be leaving money on the table.

The following items are considered when calculating a suggested listing price:

  • The local market conditions and whether it is a buyer’s or seller’s market
  • The condition of your home
  • The amenities of your home
  • The comparable homes sales in your neighborhood radius
  • The comparable home sales in your neighborhood include looking at homes that have sold in the last 6-12 months that are similar to your home

I will ensure that you will have a complete understanding of the marketplace and the overall process of selling a home. Furthermore, I will use my extensive knowledge and resources to sell your home at the highest price possible.

While these showing requests may be inconvenient at times, you will want to accommodate as many showings as possible, especially when the home is new to the market.

Follow these tips for successful showings:

  • Ensure the home is in best possible condition
  • Circulate fresh air and eliminate strong smells from food, candles or pets
  • Turn on all of the lights (even on sunny days)
  • Leave the property and bring pets with you

Following these tips will not only help your home make a great first impression but also allow buyers to envision themselves living in the space.
