Before I launched my own business coaching and CRM system, I was successful in the home staging and home construction business. It’s true. Don’t worry if you can’t picture me with a framer’s hammer in my hand. Because I didn’t drive any nails into any lumber. But I did get hands-on when it came to staging houses for sale.
And there’s actually a lot to being a home staging expert.
But if you’ve never used one, you might wonder why you’d ever need one. Well, it’s because they can help you make your house stand out from other real estate listings. Big time. And especially stand out from the ones with pictures that look like the owner just got up from the sofa to go get another beer during the commercial. Yikes.
And when I staged a home, I had an extensive list of things to do. And a schedule for the best way to prioritize the list. Because when you stage a home, you get the best results (a faster sell) when you can make it look like nobody even lives there.
That’s why we made sure to remove the clutter, take out family photos and other personal items, get rid of pet evidence, and deep clean the whole place. Because there’s nothing like a clean house to show those potential buyers the property has been cared for.
And there are so many other details most homeowners don’t think about when it comes to getting a house ready to show. That’s why I had my system down to a science. Because, especially in the world of real estate, time is money. And maybe even lots more money.
So, my team made sure there was ample lighting everywhere. And we’d rearrange furniture to give it a more stylish appeal. Plus, we paid close attention to details like neutral paint and wall treatments, clean grout, and good-working hardware throughout the house.
And there’s tons more to home staging, like…
- pillows on furniture,
- setting the table for dinner,
- making sure the exterior’s painted and the lawn mowed,
- fresh towels in the bathrooms,
- pictures in key places on the walls,
- making sure there are no empty rooms, and
- everything dusted before every showing.
And I’m only giving you a general idea of everything we did. But the main point I’m making is how much work is involved in something a lot of home sellers neglect or overlook. So, naturally, being the stickler for a system that I am, I certainly had one then, too. Because I valued my time. And I do even more, now.
If you’re a business owner or wannabe, I’ll bet you value your time, too. And just in case you do, but you’d like some help setting up a system to manage your time way better, you’re in the right place…at the right time.
