Today, Home Selling Takes MORE Than Cleaning and Packing

December 03, 2016 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)
Remember the good ole’ days when all it took to sell a house was to clean it up and pack your things? Well, in today’s market, buyers are looking for more. Effective home selling is about presentation. Hiring a professional home stager can be your best investment if you want to create a powerful first impression.
 
Some properties are already beautiful. Some need a little help. Regardless, when it’s time to sell, most properties could benefit from professional staging. That’s because home selling is about presenting an ideal lifestyle just as much as it is about checking off a list of “must-have’s”.

Beyond the wish list items of number of bedrooms and bathrooms, desire for an open concept kitchen and living area, or a view, today’s buyers want to feel like they can live their ideal lifestyle and actually feel “at home” in the property. And they will know it pretty quickly. Or NOT.
 
That’s where the expertise of a professional home stager can make THE difference in your home selling experience. With an understanding of what buyers are looking for in your particular neighbourhood and taking into consideration the features and potential problem areas of your specific property, your stager will either guide you (with a DIY option) or do the work herself (with or without renting staging furniture and accessories) to make changes that speak to your buyer.

Removing your personal items and cleaning up the grime are a given in today’s real estate market. Buyers want MORE. They want to walk in and feel like this could be home. Your home selling success relies on making the first impression that gives them what they want.
 
So if you don’t know what that is, consult with real estate professionals who have proven results in your local area.
