Getting Your Home Ready for Buyers

I am presently working on a home that will be listed for sale shortly.  This home has been completely renovated with new kitchen, baths, walls and flooring.  Upon visiting the home I could see all the great work that had been done, but looking through the camera's eye gave a different impression.  Today's buyer will more than likely see this home on the internet. If they like what they see, then they may actually come to the house for a true showing. So really the first "showing" of a listing is virtually on the web.

Right now the house looks like big empty rooms. When I am finished staging the house will have a stylized livingroom, dining room,gourmet kitchen, master bedroom and baths.  My design strategy in this house will be to provide furnishings that complement its modern style and keep it fresh and new.  The house is in a great location, convenient to shopping, NYC trains and bus, theaters, restaurants, the YMCA, bakeries and post Urban Oaisis. And that is how I want to the house to feel and be presented. Spacious modern living, in a great location, in the heart of downtown Montclair.

My seller is busy doing the finishing touches to landscaping and window cleaning. I cant wait to bring this home to the market!

My buyers like to know.............

Buyers want value.  The success of a sale often is predicated on the value the buyer has gotten on the purchase. Price, condition, location, function and wow. The specifics will be different for each buyer, but these factors always apply.
