Staging: Secret To Selling Your Escondido Home In A Down Market

Staging for Selling

You have just seen a series of post on how to ready your Escondido property for sale.  Remember the saying, “People buy what they see and not what will be.”  Or,  “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”   We have just discussed approximately 100 ways to get your Escondido home ready for sale.  But, what if you have to move and leave your home vacant.  There is always something a little unappealing and sad about a vacant Escondido house.  That is where staging or showcasing your home comes in.

Gary Harmon, your Escondido Realtor, can arrange to have a professional company stage your home and keep it ready for sale.  In a recent survey of Realtors, over two-thirds estimated that a staged Escondido home sells for 10 to 20% more and closes 60 to 90 days faster than a vacant Escondido property.  Staging companies (and we recommend Showhomes) help take the stress out of showing and selling your Escondido property by providing a turnkey package including whole-house furnishings, a professional staging and a live-in Home Manager to keep your Escondido home in show-to-sell condition seven days a week.  Staging a home can save you the Escondido homeowner holding  cost such as utility bills, cleaning fees, vacant house insurance premiums,and mortgage interest expense.  The Escondido homeowner savings  combined with a higher sales price, typically far exeed any  staging fees.  Staging companies, like Showhomes, provide commercial liability insurance on each home.

Whether a Escondido buyer, Escondido seller, or Escondido Realtor, the Escondido home selling and purchasing process is fraught with potholes.  In this weak Escondiodo real estate market, everyone involved in the selling process must increase their efforts. In order to sell Escondido homes at top dollar, Escondido houses must be “prepared for sales.” That’s where Staging, sometimes called showcasing,  becomes the secret weapon.   Contact Gary Harmon, your top Esondido Realtor more information on this great selling technique.
