Stage for today’s buyers.
Staging is a crucial factor when it comes to listing and selling property. Buyers need to feel at home and you need to set the stage for the ambiance you’re trying to achieve. Buyers need to be shown what a room is for and set the stage for a particular ambiance.
Make sure there’s enough room at the front door for buyers and their agent to comfortably wait as their agent works open the front door. Make sure aisles are clear of clutter, kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms are perfectly clean, and there is not a lot of gender specific items throughout the house. Keep things as neutral as possible with standard colors, attractive images and nothing too personal.
Try to stay unemotional.
Selling your home is more than simply selling a product; it’s selling something that you have built and lived in, probably for some time. People can get very emotional when it comes to selling their home but to a new buyer, this is simply a product. They don’t have the memories or the time invested into the property just yet. They will try to lowball you and ask for things that could be extremely unreasonable in your mind. Try to stay and emotional during these negotiations and keep the ultimate goal of selling the home for as much profit the main focus.
