4 Steps to Successfully Preparing Your Home for Resale

Home Staging is a huge factor  when preparing your home for resale and getting is sold quickly. With all of the competition on the market, and the ability to view every home in your desirable area with the click of a button everyone is online looking for their next home without even contacting a realtor until they see the one they like. So out of all of these homes on the market how do you get your home to be viewed?

Which one of these homes would you elect to go visit? They are in the same location around the same listing price and have just about the same features.

4 Steps to successfully preparing your home for resale

Contact a home stager:
A professional home stager can help you make the hard decisions on what to change and do to make your home stand out from all of the rest.

Do not panic:
The cost that you put into hiring a home stager will come back to you in the sale of your home.  Home staging statistically has a 343% return on investment. Home stagers can work within your comfortable budget. We may suggest the purchase of a few items that you need to change, but we do realize you do not want to dump a lot of money into your property right before you move out.

Stand out from your online competition:
Wait for the MLS photos until the home stager has completed working with you. I know that when you make the decision to move out of your existing home you want a buyer the next day, but wait.  This is going to be what draws the potential buyers in and make them choose your property over the one in the same neighborhood. Jumping the gun and putting up any photos could cause the potential buyers to pass you up.

Put your feet up:
After you have worked with the realtor and the home stager to successfully prepare your home for resale, you get to kick up your feet and wait for the offers to role in.  Having taken the extra step in preparation will make all of the difference in standing out from your competition!
