Have you ever noticed that when you go to an open house, some properties look like model homes…while others are completely vacant or have a great deal of clutter and personal belongings?! The reality is that not every homeowner or Realtor wants to stage a home or even cares about a home’s aesthetics. Some homes that are structurally appealing could truly benefit from home staging and de-cluttering. Perhaps the timing didn’t work out, and an owner needed to list their home quickly. Staging can take approximately 2-4 weeks to book an appointment, so in some situations, waiting for a stager is entirely out of the question. Host Joe Cucchiara welcomes back guest Rosie Poliquin, Broker Associate at Intero Real Estate Services and Catrina Palmer, Interior Designer today from 3-4pm PST on AM 1220 KDOW to discuss today’s topic, “Home Staging Alternatives When You Need to Sell Your Home Quickly.” This is your chance to listen, learn & join the discussion. You can also listen streaming online at www.reradiolive.com, and TEXT your questions to 408.838.9060 during the show!
Joe and Rosie will start the hour by giving a current overview of market trends in South County, Rosie’s specialty! They will then dive into alternatives to home staging. According to Staged Homes.com, “Home Staging is professionally preparing homes for sale, so that they appeal to the most amount of buyers and generate the highest price in the least amount of time on market.”
While staging in an established and proven component of a successful sale, there are other alternatives if a homeowner wants/needs to get their home on the market right away. If you cannot wait for a home stager’s schedule to open up, don’t give up on highlighting your home the way it deserves, and in a manner that will attract your ideal prospects. After all, making the home visually appealing will attract more buyers – which is exactly what we want for our clients. But when a stager is not available, what is a Realtor or home owner to do? This predicament is not uncommon, and it calls for a: STAGING ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION.
