The Benefits of Home Staging

-->
The primary goal of home staging is to make your home shine. In 2019 it will become even more important to give your home and edge up on the competition. In 2018 we have seen the housing market mainly favoring sellers, but a survey of industry experts by Zillow sees a change in the market for 2019.

“The housing market has been favoring sellers for the past few years,” said Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Svenja Gudell in a press release. 
“Sellers in the current housing landscape often have the luxury of listing their home ‘as-is’ without fixing it up or with only minimal window-dressing since demand for homes has been high and inventory low.”
“It’s common for sellers to receive multiple bids, and in the hottest markets, sell for over asking price, but these conditions will change in the future,” she said. “As the number of homes for sale increases and home value appreciation slows, we expect the market to meaningfully swing in favor of buyers within the next two to three years.”
This means that when selling your home, it will be more important to show your home in the best light. Even if your home is beautifully decorated, it is meant for you and may only appeal to a specific buyer. A professional home stager can help transform your home into something that will appeal to a wider variety of buyers.

A home staging professional is responsible for helping to prepare a home for sale. They will help fix flaws and highlight the positives. 

According to the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), Homes staged before hitting the market sell, on average, 73% faster than their un-staged counterparts.


Some things to focus on when staging your home are:
·       De-Clutter- This is the most important step before listing your home. A home with less stuff will feel bigger. It is important when your home is on the market to live with just the essentials. This includes removing excess furniture and clearing out the closets.
·       Space Planning- A professional can come in and arrange furniture in a way that transforms the space.
·       Maximize natural light- Spaces look best when lit with natural light. A stager will suggest removing heavy curtains to let in as much light as possible.

As always, Happy Decorating!

Top 5 colors for Selling your Home

Paint is probably the easiest and most economical change you can make to your house when it is on the market. A fresh coat of paint can instantly change the feel of your space. When you’re selling your home you want to make the space neutral to appeal to a wider variety of buyers.

READY, SET, DOWNSIZE!

By Deborah Goode, CID
There can be many different reasons for downsizing – but moving is probably the most common. Well, I’m not moving, but the older I get the more I get annoyed at all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the years. Does this sound familiar to you? 
In the past, I would move to a different home every four years. And every time I moved, I would sort through my stuff, donating lots of bags to the Salvation Army, Purple Heart and Goodwill. As you can tell, my love of shopping for clothes, shoes and decorative items has always gotten me in trouble.
However, now that I’ve been living in the same house for the past five years, my “stuff” has been multiplying exponentially. Not only is the crawl space under the house filled up completely, but we now have a garage that has no more extra room – especially for a car. And it's migrating to my two spare bedrooms and the closets are bulging at the seams. I'm really tired of the piles which seem to grow on a weekly basis. And eve…

A Relaxing Bedroom Color

Your bedroom should be calm, it should be a place of rest and relaxation. But all too often it becomes a place to catch up on work on and watch TV. While bad habits are hard to change you can still make your bedroom the oasis it ought to be using one simple trick-- paint it blue.
