One of the things I have been doing in the current market is having all my sellers who need to move before their home sells is to have it Stagged.
It has been said that people buy with emotion and justify the price. When you walk in a empty, vacant house, there is NO EMOTIONS involved. The rooms looks cold and bare. Many buyers have a hard time visualizing how their furniture would fit in the room.
This is why when builders are developing a new subdivision they always have a model home. Did you know that most model homes are the ones people tend to build, even if they have floor plans and other elevations available?
The model home is all stagged and they can imagine themselves living there. Therefore, stagging a home in Ann Arbor, Saline or anywhere in Washtenaw County helps the homes sell faster. Recently I listed a home that was originally listed my another agent. The dining room ceilings were ORANGE and below the chair rail was a different color of orange. The closets were filthy, the fireplace and family room were painted. Over it needed painting and stagging. So my seller agreed to have it done. We are closing on this home on May 16th.
Here are two separate shows on stagging one before and one after. Which would you rather see if you were looking. This home at 1258 Waterways is closing on May 16th too.
