Staging and Selling Your Home

I posted the video link below to highlight a great example of a home properly staged.  See for yourself why this home was under contract in three days at full asking price.  If the video doesn’t launch you can see the video at http://www.davidsteelerealestate.com

Preparation for listing began with a meeting several weeks before we listed the house.  A list of ten or so items was suggested and the reasons why each item was important was explained.  We started by improving curb appeal: adding a wreath and a hanging plant to focus the eye at the front entry and planting colorful flowers to make the home stand out. Decluttering was accomplished by placing excess furniture in storage and reducing knick-knacks and family pictures without stripping the house of personality.

Paint was freshened up as needed and a few minor cosmetic issues were addressed that might have given potential buyers pause.

The kitchen had already been renovated,  KITCHEN2but as you can see below it was polished and staged to make it a highly desirable in a house at this price.

As a finishing touch we focused on helping the next owner imagine themselves living in this house, enjoying the outdoor spaces. BACK7 BACK4MASTERBR1MASTERBR4

 

The MBR sealed the deal.  Who couldn’t imagine laying their heads down on a comfortable bed at the end of each day?

And, as you can tell the seller’s hired a talented professional photographer to make sure their home stood out.

Mission accomplished.  What do you think?
