I would like to share a few facts before we talk pricing. The coronavirus pandemic does not seem to be affecting mortgage applications. Which means buyers are out there and looking for their new home. Application are up 9% from last year.
This, however, does not mean you can just put your house on the market ‘as is’ and expect to sell quickly and at a great price.
We all want to make money on our homes, but the fact remains, as it been stated in marketing materials for decades. “You have to spend money to make money!”
Yes, just as in business, you have to offer your product, your product has to be packaged and advertised.
Home staging companies offer levels of service. For example: The Staging Redesign Group’s staging service begins with a “Buyers Eye Assessment”. A walk thru from the curb to your back yard. Focusing on Curb appeal, the first impressions upon reaching the front door and just how well your home will photograph inside and out. Services in this area run from about $160-$350. This may be as little as .0025% of you listing price. A very small investment for advice on how to get ready for the buyer’s critical eye. (then your stager will discuss what it will take and any costs to do more).
We can now do this virtually till the restrictions are lifted. Do not wait, now is the perfect chance when you have some time at home to really get ready to sell.
