Did you know that within 15 seconds a buyer has already developed an opinion of your property? This is why establishing the right first impression is critical to achieving a successful sale.
Decide on what types of renovations and staging you would like to complete on your home. Remove and repair all signs of damage and other deterioration, e.g. holes and cracks in ceilings and walls. Restore hardware and bathroom/lighting fixtures as needed.
Staging Matters - Main Rule of Apartment Staging:
Remember, the key to staging a home is to “Neutralize” the environment. You want it to be free of personal photos, waste cans, tissues, cosmetics etc.
The potential buyer should walk in and feel as if it is a model home, devoid of clutter. When they leave they should wonder whether anyone lives in the apartment.
For showings: Owners should leave while your home is being shown so that buyers will feel more comfortable to move around and discuss your property with the real estate professional.
