Not only are we licensed Real Estate Agent in Omaha but also an accredited Home Stager. We take only six to seven listings at a time because we are SO VERY committed and involved in the process of selling a home. Rarely will you see multiple active listings, as the homes we list go under contract very quickly! The homes we list sell quickly because of TWO Reasons:
In today’s housing market, home staging has become an important tool to sell homes effectively. Staging focuses on improving your property and transforming it into an attractive product for sale. Even beautifully decorated homes need to be turned into a merchandised product that enhances the home’s best features. The goal of staging is to sell quickly for a high return by appealing to a greater number of prospective buyers which in turn will lead to more offers or even multiple offers.
You only have one chance to impress potential buyers. Buyers’ first impressions are formed as soon as they step inside your home. Staging highlights the full potential of your property by incorporating design techniques to create a lasting first impression. You want to give homeowners a reason to buy your home.
You may be asking yourself, why should I stage my home when houses are going under contract so quickly? BECAUSE, as we said before, HOMES THAT ARE STAGED SELL FOR MORE MONEY AND EVEN FASTER. USUALLY ABOVE ASKING PRICE! WHY WOULDN’T YOU STAGE WHEN IT COSTS YOU NOTHING? IT IS JUST A “HANDS ON SERVICE” THAT WE OFFER THAT NO OTHER REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL OFFERS SO IT JUST MAKES SENSE!
How do we prepare sellers homes to show nicely when ready to sell?
A buyer prefers a home that is in move-in condition and will pay top dollar for it. It is important to be sure your home is in superior condition before listing it. Make repairs prior to selling. This will help reduce the risk of buyers trying to renegotiate the price due to repairs or problems that may arise from a private inspection done prior to closing. We give our sellers an entire list of “must do’s” before listing their property. From cleaning the home from top to bottom, making necessary repairs, and STAGING their homes throughout.
STAGING A HOME: Studies show that a well-staged home sellers faster and for TOP dollar. Less than five years ago in the Midwest, nobody really knew what staging was. This is where we come in. Being an accredited home stager as well as Real Estate Professionals we will stage your home at NO cost to the sellers. We will recommend which items of your furniture and household possessions should stay in the home and which should be removed BEFORE it goes on the market. We will bring in furniture, art work, rugs, pillows and some wonderful accessories, all carefully matched and chosen to make your home feel like a place where people can truly see themselves living there. WE ARE NOT Real Estate agents that get you to sign a listing contract, place a For Sale sign in your yard, and give you a “few tips”. We are passionate about what we do and view selling a home like a partnership. We are very particular about the pictures that go on the MLS and all the other websites. We do only HDR photos which truly showcase your home beautifully. OUR GOAL IS TO GET BUYERS IN YOUR HOME AS SOON AS IT HITS THE MARKET AND GET THE BEST POSSIBLE OFFER FOR YOU. We are “HANDS ON” Real Estate professionals that STAGE FIRST and then SELL your home SECOND. Who else does this in Omaha at NO cost to the seller??
What are the most important factors when selling a home? Price, condition, appearance and the right pictures are the most important factors in selling a home. The first step is to price your home correctly. We always do a COMPLETE Market Analysis on your home first so you know what other homes, like yours, have sold for in the past year. Pictures are VERY important; If the pictures don’t look good, chances are buyers will bypass your listing. That is something we WON’T let happen. Again, by getting your home in good condition, properly pricing and staging your home and getting the BEST pictures possible will in the end get YOU the BEST possible price. TRUST US on this one. Being one of the TOP List Agents at CBSHOME, we truly feel like we know what we are doing. Our homes get contracts sometimes in less than four hours from the time they hit the market; They never stay on the market for more than a week. If they do, we address the possible problem right away BEFORE it becomes stale. Because it is a fact…. the longer a home stays on the market, the less likely the seller will get FULL price.
