Here’s one of those. It’s a memo that came out of a printer, so there’s no handwriting which might have provided evidence of its origin. When I read it, everything in it rang true—and valuable. Here it is in its entirety (I have fixed a spelling error or two):
Keys to Selling Your Home for Profit
-smart modest investments (new stainless steel appliances, new carpet, etc)
-smart exterior improvement (clean landscape lines, strategic color pops, fresh mulch, new exterior paint/trim)
-stage it! Stage indoors and outdoors during warm months. Research average return on staging statistic.
Unless it’s a fixer, then these tips don't apply, in that case to make the most money, don’t invest in any improvements, just price to sell!
If I had one thing to add, it would be the “staging statistic” that the author (who was obviously pressed for time) seems to have wanted to include.
Boiling down Realtor® Magazine’s most detailed analysis of the topic (2015), they found that “A staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home.” Furthermore, when it comes to speed in selling your home, staged offerings left their non-staged competitors in the dust: they sold “87% faster.” Those statistics might be a little misleading, since if you are selling your St. Cloud home and either willing to hire a professional or else put in the work yourself, you are automatically more energetically focused on the sale—itself a plus.
Selling your St. Cloud home profitably is everyone’s goal from the start to finish of the process. I offer the local knowledge and expertise that has helped me perform exactly that for my clients through years of practice and experience. That’s the best reason to give me a call!
