The majority of buyers looking for Windsor homes want one thing: A home move-in ready. Often times, you will find a buyer who will pay more if they find a property that far exceeds their expectations in which all they must do is unpack their belongs and enjoy their new home.
So how does a seller ensure that they will get the most from the sale of their Windsor home? It’s not as difficult as you think. A recent study showed by real estate agents said that if a seller simply cleaned and decluttered their home, sellers add on average a $1,500 to $2,000 to their offer. How simple is that? But it’s not over.
Would you like your home to be sold faster? Of course you would. Have you considered staging your home? Another recent survey by the Real Estate Staging Association says that staged homes spend 78 percent fewer days on the market than those that are not. Why? Because buyers want to imagine themselves living in your home. They cannot do that if they are staring at your family photographs and personal artwork. Your home design should be understated so that a buyer can visualize their furniture in your home.
The first thing a seller asks is: How much does it cost to stage my Windsor home? Prices vary. It can be anywhere from a few hundred dollars on up depending on what you need done. But if staging your home allows it to sell more quickly, then the sooner you are done with mortgage payments, utilities, insurance and everything else that goes with owning a home.
By staging a home, you are also saying goodbye emotionally. Living in a home that is staged is compared to living in a hotel, however, you have a much better chance of selling it more quickly and for more money. Most sellers that have gone through this experience say it is the best money they have ever spent. Others can’t believe they have so much “stuff.”
The goal of a real estate agent is to sell your home for the price you want as quickly as possible. If this sounds good to you, and your Windsor home needs some fine-tuning to get ready for the home selling experience, then hiring a stager is your best solution.
