STAGING GUIDE

Professional Home Inspection
An advance home inspection is the best way to find and rectify any serious deficiencies in your home. Once area of concern are rectified, not only helps to ensure that the transaction goes through, but can often translate into getting a top-dollar selling price as well.
Fix It First
Sellers should note most buyers will not be able to visualize what your home will look like once the work is finished. Buyers will overlook the potential your home has to offer them and instead be stuck on what efforts are required; time & money.
Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Statistics show that home staging not only increases a home's value, but also helps it to sell faster!
Buyers spend an average of 6 minutes at a home, but will form an opinion in the first 10 seconds. Having a checklist not only will ultimately ease any selling-related stressors later on but will help keep you organized and on track in providing the best first impression you can give to potential buyers to help land you the offers that your home deserves. After price, the condition or curb appeal of your home is the single biggest factor determining how fast and for how much your home sells. REALTORS repeatedly find that people cannot visualize the potential of a home. They have to see it. That means that how your home shows now is how people see themselves in it. They cant see past the chips, leaks, clutter and stains - in fact, they tend to focus even more on those things.

HOME INSPECTION CHECKLIST

PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR A POSSIBLE HOME INSPECTION

Traditionally, the buyer arranges the home inspection as indicated in there offer contingency.
However, some sellers, usually on older homes will have a pre-listing home inspection which will allow the seller to address any issues to be rectified, giving them the position to have the upper hand when it comes to the negotiating table. Below is a list highlighting all the areas within the home, that a home inspector will review. I always suggest to my clients to walk through the list first and try to rectify issues before having to pay for a pre-listing home inspection, as well as to save time and money when listing your home for sale. Having receipts of work done to showcase to the buyer strengths your listing price.
