How To Achieve Top Dollar When Selling
Buying a house is an emotional decision and with good reason. A home is intimate, a space of your own where you eat, sleep, and spend time every day and night. It’s where memories are made and where new buyers envision their families enjoying life.
For sellers, that means that one of the more sure-fire ways to sell a home quickly and for top dollar is to capitalize on that emotion. When placing your house on the market, creating this magical feeling for buyers often requires both strategic improvements and smart staging.
Making strategic improvements where necessary modernizes the space and renders the home move-in ready. Updates that get the biggest bang for dollars spent and excite buyers the most are eye-catching light fixtures, minor repairs to walls and kitchen cabinets, hardware upgrades and countertops.
It’s important to consult with your Realtor before embarking on any improvements to make sure that they are necessary and will create the desired outcome when going to market.
A home that is in move-in condition makes it easier for a buyer to fall in love. They can immediately acclimate without having to have workers in their home to make improvements right away. The less they have to do, the more attractive the home becomes.
Smart Home Staging
Home staging can dramatically transform how a home presents without you having to do any major renovations. The goal of home staging is to minimize the negatives and accentuate the positives to show a property in a way that would appeal to the widest array of buyers. This helps them envision your house as their own, rather than through the lens of your personal tastes.
Smart staging involves working with an owner's existing pieces wherever possible and using specific techniques like furniture removal and rearranging, painting in neutral tones, and placing selective accents throughout.
Staging can help a home attract more offers, sell faster, and fetch a higher price. Once engaged, buyers will be more committed and possibly willing to increase their offer, and they may be less likely to change their minds at the last minute or ask for concessions. When a home is staged and in good condition, it moves to the top of a Buyer’s list.
