Not only does the arranging of furniture this way give off a positive energy, it creates a more welcoming environment for potential buyers.

Buyers will notice, and more importantly, they will remember this listing. If the buyer does stop to ask about the unusual room staging, they will be pleasantly surprised when they discover you put all that effort into improving the chi of the house.

Make no mistake about it, long after the buyers see a dozen or more houses, the unique interior design of your house will still remain fresh on their minds.  

Holding an Open House Party

If you have ever been looking to buy a home and stopped by an open house, you know things can be awkward and uncomfortable, especially if you are the only couple or the buyer is still sitting in the house. Why not make the open house an event every potential buyer will remember? Start by having a band or DJ playing music, set up a food station, serve wine and cheese, and offer prizes throughout the event.

It’s Memorable

Two things are going to happen if you make the open house a party. One, potential buyers will be more at ease speaking with your real estate agent, and two, they will certainly remember this listing long after the party comes to an end and they are back home that night.

Show off the Homes Entertaining Options

When you create a party atmosphere inside the house, there are going to be other buyers who imagine themselves hosting parties in this house and how well it serves them. That alone could create the emotional connection needed to get one of the buyers to come forward with an offer on the house.  

Letting Your House Do the Talking

There are going to be countless busy buyers driving by and looking at your home without you ever knowing. Many of these potential buyers don’t have time to travel around for hours with a Realtor, so they will cruise through neighborhoods before or after work, or anytime they have a few moments to house hunt.

Use Technology

Instead of leaving a realty flyer in a box out front, invest in a talking house transmitter, that can be activated by a mobile phone or the push of a button. Now they roll up on your property and can listen to a soothing voice tell them all the benefits your house has over similar ones in the area.   There are numerous devices and apps available today that will allow your house to basically sell itself. The best part is that you are going to assist buyers who look at homes during hours when you and your agent may not be available to discuss the property.   Giving A Buyer A Little Helping Hand If you are serious about wanting to sell a home, then you have to be willing to do the things many sellers will not. Perhaps you found the perfect buyer, but they are having a little trouble on their end getting their financial institution to deliver on the funding. If you are in the position, you could offer to bridge that gap and give the buyer some financial assistance so they can close the deal.

Hire the right people

Your Realtor can assist with putting you in touch with a real estate attorney who can draw up papers that allow you to pay for points, assist with closing costs, review condo documents, or give the buyer a lease-to-own deal.


When you find the right buyer who is just a little short on making things work with their financial institution, lending a little hand with the finances can help close the deal and really leave the buyer with a good feeling about this purchase.


Whether you have to sell a home fast or you are looking to get top dollar for your investment, consider these staging tips to help get even more eyes on the listing. Those folks looking to buy a home will be drawn in, allowing your Realtor to then utilize their expertise to close the deal.  

Why Spring is the Best Time to Sell Your Home



Top Reasons You Should Put Your Home Up For Sale in the Spring

Are you searching for a new home? Do you have a property that you want to list for sale, but maybe you are not sure when is the right time? A Real Estate US News study shows that spring is increasingly the best time of year to sell a property. Even in markets that are regular throughout the year, spring offers advantages that sellers cannot argue.  

An abundance of tax dollars

  Tax refunds are a huge reason that people begin looking for a new place to live. Having enough money to use as a down payment is often a catalyst that gets borrowers busy in securing a home loan, says Bankrate.   Families that have trouble saving money want to get it spent so that they do something useful with the refund instead of blowing it or using the funds on small purchases. People want to have something to show for the money they get back on tax returns after having so little during the last recession.  

Potential buyers have a little cabin fever

  Once the cold temperatures give way to sunny days and warm temperatures, people want to get out of the house. Home listings are excellent opportunities for families that were stuck inside to get out and enjoy the more seasonal weather.   Often, New Year’s Resolutions give way to bathing suit preparation. When people start moving around the neighborhood on foot or bicycle, signs for open houses are easier to spot.   Open houses offer a tempting chance to explore the neighborhood, see the design of other homes, and enjoy the fresh air. Plus, neighbors that sit outside and see the signs going up are likely to share the news with potential buyers or friends looking for a place to buy.   Word of mouth advertising is greater in offline channels in the warmer months since people are out and about longer with the sun going down later in the evening. Realtor says that blooming flowers help boost curb appeal and increase the chance of a fast sale.  

You will want to find homes early

  Buying a home in the spring can potentially take until fall before closing is complete when sales take six months to finalize. Buyers that need to get into a particular neighborhood before school begins have to look for a new place to live in the spring months if they want to get into the new home on time.   Having time to pack up the old house and get belongings to the new home takes effort that parents do not want to take away from testing and finishing up the school year. By searching for a new place in the spring months, the paperwork can be completed before children must begin classes the following year, in many cases.   The sooner parents can secure a property, the faster they can get the closing process over with so that they can settle into the new neighborhood or residence.  

Beautifying your yard is easier in the warmer months

  Curb appeal is an important factor in generating interest for a house. People looking to buy a home are more likely to step inside the homes where lawns look immaculate, and flowers are bright and abundant. Getting outside to perform yard work is easier when the weather is warm, so more homeowners are likely to be outside and making improvements in the spring.   These updates and repairs equate to home value. By making the property look fresh and vibrant, you invite potential buyers into your space welcoming them inside the front door so that they can envision themselves in the space. You are more likely to get a crowd of viewers in the spring months versus the winter because the weather is better and traveling is nicer.  

Ways you can improve your chances of selling for top dollar before you put your home up for sale.


Prepare for the sale before listing

  After you get your home in tip-top shape, you may want to hire a staging agency to come and check out the space. An expert can provide advice about how to decorate the home to appeal to the most potential buyers. They can spot out things you might not think about like adding an accent wall with a neutral tone to draw the eyes to a top feature in the home.   Experts suggest that you go over the comparisons and be sure that you are setting the home price at the right number before you list it to avoid repricing or lowering the asking price down the road. Changes in the number can make buyers think something is wrong with the house.   Spring is here, so now is the time to get busy cleaning and decluttering your home if you are planning to sell it this year. The majority of buyers are already on the lookout for a new home, so if you have a list of things to finish, you might want to enlist some help.   The sooner you list, the better chance that you will get multiple offers or a higher than asking price for your property.
