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.
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!!
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.
