I’ve wanted to have someone on the podcast for a long time who bridges the gap between stager & real estate agent – even though the industries are related, there’s a relatively small amount of crossover between the work of prepping a home to sell and the job of helping buyers and sellers make the actual sale. So you can imagine how excited I am to have Kelly Williams on today’s episode!
Kelly and I talk about how being a home stager prepared her for being a real estate agent and debunk some common misconceptions about real estate and home staging. We then dive into all the ways that staging can affect a buyer’s choice to purchase a home, what sellers need to know about prepping a house for the market, and mistakes that home sellers often make. And we talk about what today’s buyers are looking for and how staging can make a huge difference in the home-buying process.
while you cannot control the market conditions, noisy neighbors, other listings, etc., you can very much control how you present your home to sell. The better you present home against its competitors, the more likely it is that you will get a qualified buyers and recoup your return on investment. This requires strategy, planning, and persistence on your part. In this post, I am going to make some recommendations of what to do if you are planning to sell your home with one month or less, in 3-6 months, or you have 6+ months or more.
The National Association of Realtors recently published their 2019 home staging study and, once again, the statistics recommend staging as part of the marketing process of listing a home for sale.
On the show this week, I have real estate agent Kristina Mollo on the show and we talk about the process of both buying and selling a home, and what today’s buyers are looking for. When it comes to selling real estate, whether you are a home stager, a real estate agent or a home seller, it is important to understand what today’s buyers are looking for and how they think. Having worked on both buyer’s and seller’s side, Kristina knows what today’s buyers are looking for and understands the importance of putting the home’s best foot forward when it comes to selling real estate.
During the show, we discussed how to make listings stand out, leveraging social media, ways to create demand for your listings and what makes great homes hard to sell.
