The world is searching for its new normal, and real estate is no exception. However, no matter the market shifts on account of COVID and other economic impacts, there are some constants we can continue to rely on. Seasons will change, the sun will come up, and there will always be people who need to buy a home. And… Lethbridge still has too much inventory by any market standard.
In a challenging market, first impressions matter now, more than ever. Homebuyers always prefer a home that says ‘Welcome!’ From the front door to the front yard to the back patio, all of it should show just as well as anything on the inside of your home. This includes maintenance items such as your fence, the deck, the grass and shrubs, and a front door that is squeak-free, clean, and freshly painted.
The goal with home staging and market preparation is to get your home on the buyer’s short list.
Put another way, if there are 100 homes on the market in your price range, and only 15 or 20 of those homes are selling each month, how will you make sure you are one of the ‘lucky’ ones who gets an offer in the next 30 days? Here are some tips to help you get started and get ready for market! If you have any questions, call us (403-382-7335). We have a plan.
