So You Want To Sell Your Home

by Donna McCampbell

Did you know the best chance for selling your property is within the first seven weeks? It's true.

Studies show that the longer a property stays on the market, the less the seller will net upon the sale. It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value at the signing of your listing contract. The market is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell.

An overpriced home can minimize offers, lower agents response, limit the number of qualified buyers, reduce showings, reduce prospects, limit financing, waste advertising dollars, and most importantly, net less for the seller! When you are ready, contact me today for a personal market value analysis of your home. No hassles or obligation - just honest advice on how to get top dollar for your home!

Key Take away's for Home Staging on a Budget

1. You receive $2 for every $1 put into your Seattle Home using staging to Sell!

2. Always de-personalize your home before selling.  Buyers need to be able to picture their own items and themselves living in the home.

3. Declutter ALL areas of your home, including closets and storage area to showcase maximum space.

4. Make sure your home is scrubbed clean and can pass the "White Glove" test.  Also rid your home of any odors.  Potential Buyers can detect these by just walking in the door.

5. ALL homes can benefit from updating;  especially kitchens and bathrooms.

6. Utilize neutral paint colors throughout, even if that means repainting all rooms.
