In the current real estate market there are more sellers than buyers and houses have gone from being on the market for an average of 42 days a year ago to an incredible average of 120 days or more! So how do you sell your house in a slow real estate market?
While it is typical for real estate agents to say, „Drop your price“ (which is money right out of the home seller’s pocket) I can say, „Let me show you how I can help buyers fall in love with your house so they’ll want to buy now.“
Which message do you find more appealing?
I realised very early on in my real estate investing career that a well presented house made a huge difference to the amount of profit I made – in fact I made thousands extra because of the effort I put into presenting my renovated houses for sale.
Home staging is a relatively new concept for sellers in the Australian real estate market but it is fast becoming the way of the future especially if you want to sell your house in a slow market. I recently interviewed Australia’s No 1 Real Estate Agent, Anthony Toop of Toop & Toop for my up and coming book. When I asked him about the importance of home staging he said:-
„When I started in this business the home presentation industry did not exist. Nobody was doing it, it was unheard of. Over time the good real estate agents began taking the initiative. When it first penetrated the public’s consciousness on a professional level it was thought of as a luxury. Today it has become a standard operating procedure for houses being prepared for sale. It is a genuine growth industry as people have realised it has added value to the user. In short, it is a necessary part of optimising your return out of a property sale.“
Now more than ever Vendors need specialised help to sell their house faster and for more and staging is a surefire way to give your home a competitive edge over other properties on the market. House Staging will help you sell your house in any market.
