Mint Hill, NC Real Estate Agent and Home Stager: North Carolina: Matthews

If I Stage my Matthews-Mint Hill Home will you guarantee me it will sell?

If I Stage my Matthews-Mint Hill Home, will you guarantee me it will sell?  I get asked that question a lot on listing appointments.   The short answer - no I cannot guarantee you if you stage your Matthews-Mint Hill Home that it will sell.  The long answer, home staging is just one ingredient in the recipe that makes for a successful transaction of your Matthews home for sale or your Mint Hill home for sale.  Home Staging alone does not guarantee a sale.  

Checklist

However, there are some things I can guarantee you.   If you stage your Matthews-Mint Hill home and do not price it appropriately, I can almost guarantee you it will not sell.  If you do not allow showings when the appointment center calls, I can almost guarantee you it will not sell.  If you do not keep the home in showing condition and allow it to be shown while it is a mess, I can almost  guarantee you it will not sell.  If you do not leave the home when prospective buyers and their agents show up to view the home, I can almost  guarantee you it will not sell.  If you leave your pets in the home while it is being shown, I can almost guarantee you it will not sell.  As I mentioned previously,home staging alone does not guarantee a sale.  If you tried staging your home for sale previously but did not do all the other things mentioned, don't blame the home staging!!

Chalkboard

 

Part of my listing presentation is to  perform a fact finding mission to feel out the seller's motivation and to see how cooperative they will be if I take the listing.  If the seller's have already had their home on the market previously and it failed to sell, I try to determine why the home did not sell.  I always bring up home staging in every listing appointment because I believe it works.  These prospective sellers who are already skeptical of us dumb agents always want to challenge me on this issue and ask: If I stage my Matthews-Mint Hill home, will you guarantee me it will sell?  What I have learned over the years that I have been a listing agent is when a home does not sell, there are usually a combination of reasons why.  I mentioned the top 5 reasons a home does not sell in the previous paragraph and they are all equally important.  If I had to rank the importance of correct pricing on a scale of 1-10  it would be a 100, home staging would be a 99. Stay tuned for my next article on how to correctly price your Matthews-Mint Hill home for sale
