Last night, a friend reached out to me on Facebook. She is planning on selling her home (more on that later), and likes to reach out to me with questions from time to time. Here's what she wrote to me last night:
I wrote her back and said absolutely! I want every home I bring to the market to be in the best shape possible, so that buyers will be WOWED when they walk in. Home staging is key!
She asked if that meant the whole works - buying new furniture, etc? I told her no, it doesn't mean new furniture. I like to offer my clients low- and no-cost ways to stage their homes, which means making sure what you have looks its best and is presented in the best possible way. This includes decluttering, repositioning furniture, painting, setting the dining room table, and anything else that will make your home shine.
Have you considered this?
You want to get started as early as possible with getting your home ready to sell. My friend who reached out to me on Facebook said she is selling her home in 2021! She's getting a head start on things! Now, you may not have your life as mapped out as she does, and that's okay! The earlier you can get started, the better.
There are a few reasons why getting started early is so important. First, if there are any big projects you need to take on, you'll have more time. Second, if you need to get your home on the market more quickly than you had anticipated, you'll be able to do so. And third, if you're going to fix up your home to sell, you should be able to enjoy some of the upgrades you're making to your home before you put it on the market!
