STAGING HOMES TO SELL IN MD
First impressions are EVERYTHING! This is most certainly true when you are trying to sell your home!
LIST - STAGE - SELL HOMES
As a local Realtor® for nearly 15 years, I speak from experience when I say the market is still a buyer’s market. Ample inventory and reduced prices tip the scale in favor of buyers. Sellers must not only price right, but take advantage of the small details… which add up big! The National Association of Realtors reported that curb appeal sells 49% of all homes. That is a significant number.
A seller’s home is quite literally ‘on stage’. Buyers will critique its every room and every detail, and compare it to the ‘house up the street’, they are also considering! Staging styles a home to appeal to the ‘most’ buyers. Staging Homes to Sell gives sellers a crucial advantage in this highly competitive marketplace. Failing to do so, and ‘show’ its best, leads to longer days on market, and most often a lower sales price.
Wowing buyers from the get-go, and styling a home to most effectively avoid any ‘buyer objections’, leads to faster, more lucrative sales! Even better… the most effective ‘tricks of the trade’ won’t break the bank.
Here are a few to consider when staging homes to sell in MD:
CLEAN, CLEAN CLEAN
A dirty house is a turn off, and often worries buyers as to ‘what else’ has not been cared for! Take the eye of a new visitor to your home, look high and low, from baseboards to lighting fixtures, shades, and bathrooms/kitchens!! Depersonalize, especially in bathrooms!! Buy a small plastic organizer for toothbrushes and toiletries, as buyers don’t want to see what ‘you use’ – then hide under the sink- easy! Dry sinks, clean mirrors, and toilet seats DOWN! A little maintenance goes a long way! Reduce items in closets by at least 50%, NOTHING should remain on floors. Creating space shows buyers how much your home has to offer! Rent a storage space if you must, ideally you will be moving anyway!
