It's no secret that most of us don't keep our house in immaculate condition, but when you are ready to sell your home, it needs to be in superb shape. That's right, time to banish the clutter, tidy the bushes, hide the Star Trek collection, and finish those home improvement projects! Home staging has become an integral part of getting top dollar for your home and can be the difference between being able to sell and not being able to sell in a tough market.
Think of staging you home as you think of first dates. You get your house all gussied up, put the prettiest face possible on the property and try to impress the heck out of someone you only just met - the potential buyer. The objective, however, is not to get a phone number or a peck on the cheek. It's to make a sale, but not just a sale, a top dollar sale.
Selling property in the Nashville and Middle Tennessee real estate market is very competitive. Home sellers need to do more than simply put a sign in their yard and hope for the best. A professionally staged home will showcase and enhance the desirable aspects of the property. Utilizing attention to detail, embracing the concepts of Feng Shui, and a systematic and proven approach for uncluttering rooms that visually increases room size, clearly sets a professionally staged home apart from other properties on the market. Home staging accelerates your sale and attracts the maximum dollar value for your home.
Ok, so now what? How do you know what will work and what won't work? Should you spend $15,000 to paint the entire house? Where do you start? These are just some of the questions that you may have and the answer varies in almost every case. That is why our team includes Jeanie White, a full-time, professional home stager who consults with all of our Nashville area sellers at no cost. That's right, no cost. We provide this additional service because our staged homes sell for top dollar and often set new record prices in their neighborhoods. Jeanie is able to work directly with you to help solve the complicated puzzle that is home staging. Decisions like: should you remove furniture or simply rearrange? Should you paint the room or just add a wall covering? Should you remodel the kitchen or just replace the appliances? Should you clean the carpet or rip it out and refinish the hardwood floors underneath? It all boils down to this simple question: What is the cost of the improvement and how will it affect the final selling price? This is the answer that Jeanie White will provide.
