One of the things I love about my job is helping sellers prepare their home for sale.
After several consultations with my seller client, he is making repairs to his condo prior to putting it on the market. I stopped by to observe the progress and lend advice. One thing led to another, and the next thing I know, a paintbrush is in my left hand and I'm cutting in around the stairs.
Painting is a passion and I'm really very good at it (if I do say so myself). My client took this photo to show that I do what needs to be done to get a house ready for sale. I don't mind getting my hands dirty.
Once the paint is dry and the unit is clean, we'll be staging this unit for sale. I'll borrow from friends and my private collection to furnish the living areas to show the condo in its best light.
I can stage a home with little to no money by using what I have. Once the unit is properly staged, I'll share photos when the listing goes live.
We could have hired a professional stager, but in this case the seller opted for my assistance. The seller is helping with free labor (transportation) so we will have this unit on the market in no time.
Fixing and staging is something I'm passionate about. I've been "fixing" homes for years, both for myself and by advising sellers I represent. It's rewarding to see the results. The sellers love it, especially when the SOLD sign is placed in the yard.
Instead of waiting for someone else to remedy a situation, I take matters into my own hands. There are advantages to thinking outside the box.
If you've considered selling your home in the Jackson metro area and want to consult on preparing your home for sale, call me. I'll be glad to make recommendations based on my years of experience in the real estate business.
