Are your Preparing NM Your Home For Sale? Think Builders Model Home.  

Have you visited a Builders Model Home recently? If not maybe you should prior to preparing your home on the market.  Most builders especially national builders are savvy business people, they have conducted an immense amount of research on trends, buyer expectations and what buyers respond to.  Home builders spend a lot of money to properly stage and present their model homes....why? because it sells homes.  Kitchen in Model HomeIf a buyer were to walk into three of the exact same builder floor plans with one being the builders staged model, another being a finished but “Blank” home and another occupied home poorly decorated, unkempt or unorganized which do you think the buyer would favor?  Even when priced higher the model home wins every time!  It’s warm with good light, soft colors, soft furniture and everything beautifully coordinated.  

I realize most sellers are not professional stagers but when it’s time to prepare your home for the market Think Builders Model Home!  You won't find clutter, nicks and dings, dirty carpets or dingy windows. You won’t find years of dirt standing on top of baseboards or ceiling fans.  You won't find kitchen cabinets lined up with small appliances and last nights dinner. What you will find is organization, cleanliness and purpose.  Builders sell hundred of thousands of homes utilizing the principles of simplicity, color and design.

As a home seller be prepared when listing your home, de-personalize, deep clean, paint, clean windows, organize and since you're moving anyway go ahead and  box it up and store it away.  Think Builders Model Home while you prepare your home for sale then try to emulate their philosophy.  Remember when a full service Realtor® as myself markets your home they are sharing high resolution photographs all over the world wide web so make it shine and be proud.  Don’t give buyers unnecessary objections.  A little work today can easily shorten your time on market and add to your net proceeds. Make that upfront effort, we’ll have your home SOLD in no time.

John:

Nice video.  We should accompany our sellers through a model home so they will get the message.  They may be overwhelmed, but they will see the desirability of presenting their home as a "model home".

John, you have great advice.  However, in Northeast OH, we still have only a few model homes.

Love the photo you provided. Isn't funny the agent didn't even try to clean the clutter before taking the picture?
