Is home staging absolutely necessary in order to sell your home?
The answer, absolutely not! Realtors push for having an extra touch when selling a home because it may be one more thing that grabs the buyers attention. Home staging is one of these extra touches which is by no means necessary when selling your home. You do not need to pay for a professional to come in and stage your home for you especially if you are on a tight budget. It would be a good idea to borrow a book on home staging from your local library or buy a book on home staging. Finding out the right information on home staging can save you a great deal of money so you do not have to hire a professional! However not all stagers are extremely expensive. There are many that are a fairly good price and hiring one may help sell your home faster. It is also important to remember that you can also get help from your Realtor if you hire one that is willing to help you with this (which is why you should hire a Realtor from Century 21 Beal, Inc.)
Is a mural considered a selling point or a “personal touch” ?
The answer to this question really depends on the mural and the home. It is important to ask your Realtor their opinion. If you do not have an agent it is important to hire an agent to walk through to look at the home/mural and give you suggestions. For most situations the best option would be to paint over it. It is important to look at it with a clear mind though because some murals may be a special touch to a room. The best advice would be to get a professional opinion.
If you are getting ready to put your home on the market is it important to make sure all the repairs are done. Do you need to hire a home inspector before putting your home on the market?
Yes! A pre-inspected home has a better chance of selling more quickly than a home that has not been inspected. When you have your home pre-inspected it can help smooth out the path for the rest of the home selling experience. Overall it is important to have your home pre-inspected and it looks better to someone who is interested in buying your home.
