As the warm days of summer come to an end and kids return to school, home owners and realtors alike are heading back indoors and ramping up for the fall real estate season. Prepare now by meeting a few potential professional stagers who you are considering working with to avoid the stress of a last minute rush.
Recent Calgary real estate market statistics indicate that, on average, properties have been taking longer to sell since 2014. While you can’t change the conditions that have weakened some buyer demand in Calgary, your listings’ days on market CAN be influenced by adding a Calgary stager to your home selling team. The fall real estate season is a perfect time to start if you haven’t already worked with a staging professional.
Staged properties have the ability to appeal to potential buyers more quickly, make a more positive first impression of the listing, and create an emotional connection that leads to faster decisions to buy. As a result, staging can help your listings to beat out the competition and therefore shorten their time on the market.
That’s one of the reasons why I suggest that realtors should already have a “go-to stager” on board and ready to go for their new fall listings.
If you’re a Calgary realtor, I’d love to chat about how my staging services can help you ramp up for the fall real estate season and prepare your listings to sell faster.
