Staging New Hampshire


Do You Want To Sell The House Or Do You Want To Be Comfortable?

Selling a house is a stressful process.  Preparing a house for sale is a lot of work.  Living in a house for sale can be very inconvenient.  You may have to rearrange the furniture or even worse, move your favorite recliner to storage. 

If you are going to sell your house, here's the first question you need to answer:

What's more important to you -  that you be comfortable in your favorite chair or that you sell quickly without having to reduce the price?

prt foodI find it quite amusing when sellers take a firm stand, arms crossed, a look of defiance on their face, and refuse to remove the giant TV from the master bedroom  because they just can't give up watching  TV from their bed.  Or, they refuse to move the monster bag of dog food from the kitchen to the garage, because it would be too inconvenient to store it out there.

I actually had a seller look me in the eye and say it would be "disturbing to their routine" to have to remove their personal products from the shower on a daily basis.

If you believe that it's your right to live in your house comfortably and that buyers will just have to see past your stuff, and you have made up your mind that you will give this "staging thing" a try, but only for one month and then you are going back to living "normal" then this message is for you:

It doesn't matter to me how long your house sits on the market.  I'm not making the mortgage payment or paying the taxes.  I get paid for my consultation and get the same amount regardless if you sell tomorrow or a year from now. 

I am here for one reason only, to tell you how you can make your house more appealing to buyers, which will help you sell faster and increase your odds of making more money.  You can follow my advice or choose not to.

  We are on the same team.  We both want the same end result.

  I'm not the one who is going to lose or gain depending on the outcome, you are!
