Homeowner Staging Woes

Homeowner Staging Woes or should we say “Woah!!”
written by Jill Gargus CID

Many Homeowners today ignore the advice of Staging and Real Estate Professionals and simply do not prepare their homes for sale or viewings.

The MLS is filled with a sea of photos to prove this point. Laundry on beds, cats on kitchen counters, robes hanging on doors, tons of shampoo bottles and cleaning products filling up counter space, the list is endless.

It still amazes me that after Staging homes in Edmonton for the last 12 years, we still see this in the majority of listing photos. But come on, I can’t stage thousands of houses a month!

For entertainment, join me with a glass of wine and surf the MLS for the most shocking and hilarious photos. Even social media has threads of ridiculous posts on the craziest MLS pictures.

Homeowners who want to sell and are NOT prepared to correctly market their home are then faced with many WOES when they try to list their home in these conditions.

The WOES of no showings  “In Person” because the ONLINE SHOWING scared buyers away, yet no one knew it!
The WOES of becoming stale on the market
The WOES of having to reduce their prices over and over
The WOES of having NO IDEA why their home isn’t selling
The WOES of changing Realtors, thinking that they are the problem ( they aren’t)
The WOES of dealing with showing after showing, cleaning up and leaving so strangers can stomp through your house and leave without buying it. Good times.
The WOES of being frustrated while you watch the house you wanted to buy, be sold out from under you to the Smith family.
The WOES of having to pay 2 house payments if you decided to buy it before the Smiths’ got there….

WOAH. WAIT.
