You may think I'm exaggerating and may even think that buyers don't really care if your house is organized or if it is staged, but you are wrong. If you are a Miami seller who knows the market and keen, you know that things have drilled you over and over on how important it is for your property to show like a model. If a real estate buyer is looking at 2 very similar Miami properties in the same location with similar price ranges, they will always pick the property that is clean, pretty and organized. When there is a lot of competition, it is crucial that your property stands out, that your house shows better, that you have more to offer. Is it worth a little trouble of your time to make your house show the best way possible? I really hope so.
There is a psychological factor that tells that buyer that the person that is selling the pretty and organized home "takes care" of their home, it also feels more welcoming and ultimately the property they want to buy. Of course we understand that sometimes circumstances don't allow for extreme measures, but there are key factors that need to happen for a property to sell, ignoring those factors will only keep your house on the market longer and will determine how motivated you are to sell. When you list a property, you have to meet with your seller customers and you go into detail about what needs to happen to the property for it to be in "showing condition". If you refuse to do anything else, you must at least declutter your property.
Any Realtor will tell you that decluttering is the single most important factor when selling a home today. Here’s some helpful information on how to declutter a home, put away small decorative items next you have to leave all surfaces clear - including top of dressers and tables after that put away personal items such as photographs, pickup mess, also you have to empty closets out as much as possible, if you have too much furniture, store it or better yet, get rid of it, always keep in mind that you are not selling your things, you are selling your home.
You have to consider that by not taking the time to make your home look at least as presentable as possible, because if you don’t make it as presentable as possible you are sending a message to the buyer that you are either not motivated or even worse your property is worth less that what the market and you calls for it. You don’t want it to happen on your home would you? So the best thing is you have to make your home as beautiful as possible so that you can attract buyers and maybe you can raise the market value of it, who knows? Right.
