Concerned about selling your house within this buyer’s market? Implementing some simple staging tips from the pros might help your house sell faster. The new DVD from Lise Desourmeaux will provide the best home staging tips.
According to the Property Staging Association the effort may be well worth your time. The PSA studied 174 homes that had been on the market for an average of 156 days before homeowners hired a professional home stager. After staging, they sold an average of 42 days after re-listing.
But there is not always a need to hire a professional for this job. “Keep the saved money for yourself,” states Lise Desourmeaux, the Founder and CBW (Chief Bottle Washer) for RMR-Real Estate Marketing Results, Inc., a home staging company well known for its remarkable ability to ‘transform houses for sale into homes that sell’ (TM) for the elite luxury home market in Atlanta, Ga.
As long as you have a friend with a strong eye to give you a second opinion, staging a home for sale is often something owners can handle on their own, she said.
Most real-estate agents agree with that. In a recent HomeGain survey of more than 500 real-estate agents, de-cluttering and cleaning, brightening and lightening rooms, and staging were among the top five low-cost, “Do It Yourself Home Staging” suggested for people getting their homes ready to sell.
Professionals often say home staging techniques go beyond just basic de-cluttering and painting, focusing on the arrangement and mood of rooms. But all are important to making a home presentable before listing—not after the home has languished on the market.
If the place is a mess and people look at it, and many people have been turned off by it, it’s viewed by the market as damaged goods,” Lise Desourmeaux said. Generally, the longer a home stays on the market, the lower the price it will fetch, she added.
