Real estate fever has arrived in Lethbridge. After years and years of a sluggish market, shrinking inventory feels like sweet relief for many homeowners. However, the idea that ‘everything is selling’ is a dangerous one. The majority of homes we show each week are simply not well prepared. This is a costly error, no matter the market.
Survey after survey continue to show that homes sell faster and for more money when they are correctly staged for sale. And we see this on our side of the desk all of the time in Lethbridge. Staged listings outperform the market average. Period.

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, 83% of homebuyers can more easily visualize living in a home that is staged. Furthermore, buyers make a judgment about your home within seconds of walking through the front door. This of course begs the question: will a buyer (or their agent) even book a showing at all if the listing photos show an ill prepared home?
We cannot overstate the critical importance of home staging to sell faster and for more money. A bucket of paint and some sweat equity is far less costly than accepting a lower price after months of languishing on the market.
