Sell Your Clearwater Home For 40% More, 17% Faster This Spring

Clearwater Florida Home Sellers are preparing for Spring Home Selling Season

Clearwater Florida – I was talking with my friend Gayle Wade who is a Clearwater  home stager and has been helping sellers in Pinellas County get there home ready to be sold in this “buyers real estate market” and realized this may be a topic our home sellers need to hear more about.

Super Bowl Weekend has ended and what a great game we had here in Tampa Florida – however it reminds me that this traditionally marks the start of the Spring Buying Season in real estate.  Anecdotally, Clearwater real estate agents will tell you that buyer activity tends to tick higher at this time of the year.

Meanwhile, with mortgage rates still trolling near all-time lows and Congress debating a first-time homebuyer tax credit, 2009 may bring out even more buyers than we’ve seen in the past.

Just having your Clearwater home on the market may not be enough to attract an offer, though — the house has to have appeal.  That brings us to home staging — the process by which a homeowner re-organizes and re-presents his home to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible.

Home staging is part-science, part-art, and part-psychology.  Clearwater Homebuyers tend to judge homes within the first 8 seconds of seeing them so making a quality first impression can mean the difference between getting multiple bids, and just getting a lot of foot traffic.

The 4-minute video gives some quick-and-easy tips, including:

Even though home inventories are falling, supplies are still higher than in previous years.  Home sellers wanting to stand out in a crowd may want to consider staging their homes to help them sell more quickly.

Staged homes sell for as much as 17% more money and as much as 40% faster than non-staged ones.Post
