Your home is a major asset in your investment portfolio, and when selling that asset, you want to be confident you are getting the highest possible return. There is often a fair amount of stress associated with selling your home. You have to accommodate showings; packing must be done; people you do not know are in and out of the home judging what has been your home. This stress causes some people to want to unload the property quickly and minimize additional stress factors. Moving too fast could drastically reduce the return on your investment, causing you to potentially leave thousands of dollars behind at the final closing.
How can Compass Concierge services help you get more money for your home?
Proper staging is critical for buyers to see themselves in the home
You and your family have created the spaces in your home to fit your style and needs. When you have decided to move on from this home, it is time to evaluate what the potential buyers will like about the home. Your art or statement furniture collection may be beautiful, but it may also overwhelm buyers. Staging firms specialize in knowing how to accent the key features of a room and how to connect buyers to that feeling of belonging to the space. Designers are trained on minimizing flaws and highlighting spaces buyers will love. There is significant potential for getting more from your home with proper staging, plus the home will most likely sell faster. For every $100 invested in the staging process, you could see almost $400 in return. Compass Concierge could provide you with resources to quickly and efficiently get your home staged for your first showing.
No one wants to paint before they move into their new home
Outdated carpets or worn floors are unappealing to buyers
Most buyers do not want carpet throughout their entire home, especially worn carpets, and they are willing to pay more for hardwood floors. Carpets are difficult to clean and hold in years of allergens that could impact a growing family. Installing hardwood floors in your main living spaces will allow your home to appear more modern and updated. Your agent, Regan Maki, will give you some pointers on which areas would get you the most return from updating the flooring. Everything will be arranged and completed for you, including moving things from the room if you would like. You will not have to do a single thing or put down any money to have the dramatic transformation done to your home.
It may be time to upgrade that bathroom you have been putting off
We have discussed basic cosmetic updates and staging, but what about a larger remodeling project? Buyers love updated bathrooms and kitchens, so they will not have to worry about doing the work when they move in, causing their lives to be uprooted. While a bathroom or kitchen remodel is a larger project, Compass Concierge has the resources and money to help you get it completed quickly. This is a particular area where patience will allow your home to sell faster and for a larger amount than expected. Working closely with Regan Maki will enable you to understand if a minor update would be sufficient or if a more luxurious remodel would appeal to potential buyers.
