Timing is Everything

Timing is Everything

When you are in the process of selling a home, there are several times when you must meet certain goals within a specific time frame in order to move forward with the process.

One of the most common questions I am asked when people are getting ready to list their home is:  “When is the best time to Stage a home for sale?”  The simple answer is…prior to having the listing photos taken.

A general guideline is to have a Home Staging consultation as soon as you know you will be selling.  Having a professional come into your home will help you create a comprehensive “to do” list that is prioritized by importance.

Often times, the list can be completed in a week or less but if there are updates that require more extensive work, it may take longer (i.e. painting, flooring updates) so you will want to plan accordingly.  Keep in mind that contractors, painters, plumbers and the like tend to get very busy in the springtime so it may not be easy to get them to your project quickly.

Planning ahead and preparing your home will create the strongest first impression when your home is posted online.  Telling a great visual story through the photos is key to getting perspective buyers to move beyond their computers and/or mobile devices and through the front door to view the home in person.  The more people come through the door, the higher the chances for a faster sale.
