Non Stage Prep
First off, sellers need to focus on getting their home ready to sell, not to live in. The best way is to clear everything out of the house if possible. Since you’re moving, you might as well pack it anyways. Then give the walls a fresh coat of white paint to make your space feel like it’s bigger. Do a full cleaning of the whole house. This goes from wiping down all of the spider webs on the ceiling, all dust on the ceiling fans, cleaning all windows inside and out, especially the seals of the windows to cleaning off every light switch.
Stagers are up on the trends of what is selling and create scenes that make people walk in and say, “I can live in this home.” People are now accustomed to what they see on HGTV and to be honest, all new home builders put so much into staging their model homes that we work extra to make older homes just as desirable.
With technology taking over the world as we know it, most home buyers look online before ever stepping foot in the front door or even talking to a real estate agent. It is my job to make the photos online present the best light, are in an inviting order, and tell the story of the home that gets buyers to preview it in person. This means sharing local attractions, school districts, and other selling points of the neighborhood. We can even take it one step further and create a virtual tour of the house, so it’s bound to stand out from the rest across the internet.
Press play below and take the full tour of our latest masterpiece!
When buyers walk into a home, we want the wow factor that our efforts are even better than the pictures or video they saw online. If you are looking to live in the area, give me (Tim De Shazer) a call at (562) 881-8252. My team is ready for their next project!
