New Rules for Preparing Your Willoughby Home for Sale for The Spring Market

New Rules for preparing for The Spring Market of your Willoughby Home for Sale



1.)  Appeal to 85% of the Willoughby Home  for Sale buyers

 

unique is not buyer friendly to the masses  

this applies to both exterior and interior

 


2.) The Willoughby home for sale must stand out from the crowd

Appeal to Mass Buyers


with literally hundreds of homes for sale in Willoughby the home must stand out in 3 key areas 

 PRICE - CONDITION - LOOKS

(often the mistake is made that because the house is in great condition it also looks great -  a house might have great bones and updated mechanics and still not appeal in looks to the masses)

 

 

3.)  Paint and Carpet

 

please don’t underestimate the value of these simple and reasonably easy items to change -- there is nothing like a freshly painted Willoughby Home for sale with new carpet    Fresh Paint



~ remember my jingle -- a little bit of paint makes a house what she ain’t :) ~ 




4.)  Consult and Hire Stagers

 

the value of consulting and hiring professional stagers to ready your Willoughby Home for the selling market is priceless -  on average a staged home sells within 90 days of it being staged - the stagers I have on my team average 30 days of a staged home 


 

5.)  Have a Plan for Pets              Dogs

 

 

if you have pets think about where they will be when someone wants to see your Willoughby Home for Sale -- if your pet is not friendly consider a crate or removing him/her from the house before showing -- if your pet is friendly consider removing him/her from the house before showing   (here’s the thing with pets, people are either afraid or madly in love with pets - both of which are distractions from the house itself  - just the other day my clients and I spent 20 minutes playing with the sellers very friendly and adorable dog and barely looked at the house - AND many people are very allergic to pets and often times if they even see pets or their goods they want out of the house - IF IT is feasible and reasonable consider removing your pets for showings AND i say this with caution as not to let this rule being able to say yes to a showing for your Willoughby Home for Sale)     if your plan is to use a room in the house i wouldn’t recommend keeping a pet in a room that a Willoughby Home buyer would want to see  --  also, ask a friend who has a great nose to stop over and see if they detect any pet odors that you’ve become accustomed too and if so eliminate the odors



If you are thinking about moving and would like a free consultation I'm happy to help and feel free to call/text me directly at 216) 956-7635 or ChristineAtREMAX@gmail.com
