May 2019 Monthly Market Update
May 2019 Monthly Market UpdateMay is here are we are starting to see more houses coming on the market. I am preparing to put 10 houses on the market this month! Yet, we still have more buyers than there are homes for sale because rates have remained steady.
If you are a seller and want to net the most when you sell then listen up:
The hottest homes that come on the market are staged homes. Homes that have that HGTV look. And right now staged, well maintained homes are selling with multiple offers.
At our home selling seminars we teach you how to net the most for your home and one of the points we review is how staging is an awesome return on investment. Staging your home can net you more let’s take a look:
- Appeals to a wider range of buyers
- Staged homes sell 6 times faster
- ROI averages 169% more
- Buyers want move in condition
- Buyers buy with their eyes
- Staging makes a great first impression
- Creates Demand
Demand is essential to selling your home for the most! Be sure to hire an expert marketer like myself who knows how to create demand. When selling think of it this way: High Demand = Highest Selling Price & Sellers in Control of Negotiations
Next, I want to talk about basic tips for staging:
- Remove unnecessary furniture: Less = More
- Flood the rooms with natural light
- Keep corners clear
- Remove personal pictures & knick-knacks
- Clean out closets
- Neutral Fresh Paint gives your home a new look
There is a reason Toll Brothers spend $1000’s to have the most appealing model homes. Because they know it will net them more in the end.
Remember you do not have to stage to sell. Everyone’s goals are different.
