Getting your home ready
Getting your home ready
Making sure your home is show ready is a must, especially in today’s fast-paced market.
Buyer’s will typically conduct showings very quickly, and make up their minds about a home even quicker.
The Fournier real estate group is here to make sure your home is market ready, and we aim to prepare your home for an optimal launch on the market.
Our goal: emphasizing your home’s ‘wow’ factors, achieve a better buyer conversion rate, obtain a speed of sale, sell at a higher sale price, and land a deal that’s desirable to your needs.
3 reasons why home staging is important:
I - SPEED OF SALE
We experience it regularly: homes that are market ready prove to sell much quicker, and with better ease than homes that aren’t.
II - HIGHER SALE PRICE
Having your home market ready can help you obtain a higher sale price, than the homes that aren’t. Based on our personal experience, we’ve noticed for it to be the case.
III - BETTER CONVERSION RATE, AND SELLING AT DESIRABLE TERMS
We’ve noticed that properly staged homes will result in a better buyer conversion rate, and more desirable selling terms than homes that aren’t.
Tips and tricks
First, and last impressions last.
We recommend you starting with a simple exercise. Take a walk around the block, and walk in front of your home as if there we’re a ‘sold’ sign on the front lawn. Imagine yourself in a buyer’s shoes. Everything you see as not being clean, empty and neat, should be dealt with.
Think: landscaping, grass, hedges, eavestroughing, siding, etc.
De-clutter, de-personalize, and emphasize the 'wow' factors.
De-cluttering can go a long way. It allows for a more open feel to your home, and helps buyer’s envision themselves living in your home. It also makes for smoother showings, and a better chance for buyer’s to fall in love.
De-personalizing is important. Buyer’s don’t want to see your dirty laundry, food leftovers, dirty dishes, toys, etc.
Emphasize the ‘wow’ factors. If your home has a beautiful cathedral ceiling, clear what’s underneath it to emphasize how open and tall that room feels. If your home has a beautiful foyer, make it cozy, and make it welcoming.
