Staging to Sell
The way we "live" in our home and the way we "sell" our home are two different things.
A home staging will put you in the position to present your home for sale, in its best light. This helps to sell the house more quickly, and often for more money.
Home sellers and REALTORS® have two priorities: sell the property fast and for as much money as possible. Market-sensitive pricing and a well-executed marketing plan to get the most attention in the marketplace are, of course, crucial. Equally important is to make sure a property makes a great first impression. These days, with more than 80 percent going online to begin their home search, it’s imperative that the first impression not only is made when visiting a home, but as important through pictures in Web listing.
Statistics gathered show that 94.6 percent of homes staged by an Staging Professional sell within 33 days, compared to an average of 196 days for homes that are not staged. Homes staged stay on the market 83 percent less time than a home that has not been staged.
The buying market is competitive and with that comes first impressions. Real estate pros can make a solid first impression with fresh staging techniques for open houses, showings and those ever important property photos and videos (i.e. a picture says a thousand words).
Spring Staging DO’s and DON’Ts:
1. DO NOT cover up any structural problems or areas that need repair.
2. DO NOT decorate to your own personal style.
DO stick with simple ideas. Look at magazines and use Pinterest as a guide even, because you want each buyer to see that living room or kitchen with their personality. If they are overwhelmed with the seller’s style, imagining themselves in the home will be a struggle. Stay simple, avoid eclectic furniture, faux finishes and minimize personal photos as well.
3. DO NOT forget about the unseen areas.
4. DO NOT give the impression that some of the staging items convey with the property. For instance, you change the porch light to something more savvy or placed bamboo shades in a home that will be sold with bare windows.
5. DO NOT let driveway cracks and oil spots remain.

"Experience cannot be Substituted"
I have been matching Sellers and Buyers since 1986 in the Branson, Tri-Lakes area.
Put my knowledge and experience to work for you.
A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.
This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams. I strive for your 100% satisfaction.
