A Comprehensive Marketing Strategy:
Selling Your Property
Setting the Stage—Home Evaluation and Staging Services Plus More
When selling your home, remember the importance of first impressions. With a little time and effort, you can increase the perceived value of your home. Preparing your house for sale includes simple things like keeping it clean and uncluttered. We provide professional staging services to identify areas that may need updates, repairs or staging to position your home as a first choice for buyers.
It is estimated that more than 50% of homes are sold before buyers get out of their cars. A well maintained home on the outside gives buyers the impression that the home is well taken care of on the inside.
Remove as much clutter as possible. Cleanliness is a sign to buyers that the home has been well maintained. Overall, kitchens & bathrooms should be spotless; these two rooms alone can sell a home. Cabinets and closets should be neat and organized. Neutralize odors and clean all mold and mildew.
Our professional photographers capture the beauty and special interior/exterior features of your property. Professional photography is extremely important in our electronic age. The presentation of your property on public websites is crucial to getting today’s buyers interested in seeing your home. Also, it is essential that your home stands out among others in our MLS system that is viewed by REALTORS and used by them to send links to their clients of recommended homes to tour.
