Stress-Free Listing Review!

real estate agent reviews near me

YES!!! You guys, this is it! The review that literally sums up our entire stress-free listing experience! We recently sold this home in Kent and our clients just left us this review ⬇⬇⬇
“Rosie’s team is fabulous and we surely needed a team. The home we were selling was a fixer- upper. Rosie’s team managed everything. They helped us find contractors and scheduled much needed work to be done in a timely manner. (roofer, painters, contractor etc.) They even helped choose the color of the paint, counter tops and new carpet. They know what it takes to get a house ready for sale so we could get the best price and feel good about the quality of the home we sold. Rosie has great connections and she was able to get work accomplished in weeks where it would have taken us months. The process of photographing, listing and selling the house went very smoothly. We could not have done it without Rosie. Thank you to your hard working and diligent team!!”
Thank you McKee Family, we are speechless! This is why we formed a team, we can help more people and create the ultimate, stress free listing experience!

Staging… Yes or No?

home staging ideas

 

Why we recommend home staging even in a hot market!

We get this question A LOT, especially right now. If the market is so hot, do I really need to stage my home? The answer is yes, but it depends.

A vacant home needs to be staged, period. A 2020 report from RESA found that 85% of staged homes sold for 5-23% more than a non-staged home. For a little investment it can yield a HUGE return! We work with some of the best stagers in the area, and buyers have commented that our listings show the best because of it!

Staged homes also sell faster and they are easier to market to the masses via social media... no one wants to see vacant room on their newsfeed, lol! According to Forbes a staged home will sell 87% faster than a non-staged home. Why does this matter? A faster home sale will put more money in your pocket. If a home doesn't sell after the first week in this market, a price reduction will be recommended to keep the house from getting lost online. Any money invested in staging is well worth it!

But what if you live there, should you still stage it? It really depends, but in most cases a bit of re-staging and styling will do the trick! Joanne on our team has a background in design and loves helping our clients declutter and use existing pieces you already have to re-stage the home. We can also bring in smaller accent pieces, pillows, place settings, etc to spruce the place up before listing!

Putting your home's best foot forward involves a lot of work from our team, but in the end it is worth it for our clients! More money, a faster closing date, and a stress-free listing experience... and staging is just one part of our secret sauce!

Spring Market

 

Is there a shift in the market?
