When your home is on the market listen to the feedback you are receiving from potential buyers and do something about any negative feedback whenever possible.
A professional Home Staging Expert can be a huge help.
I was called to stage this vacant property that had almost been sold when first listed but the buyer walked away because they loved to entertain and they didn't know if they could fit a dining room table in the area right outside the kitchen. Months went by with no more interest so the owner wanted my opinion on whether or not the area could be used as a dining room.
I took a look and made the decision that is was a perfect spot for a dining room. There was even a light right above the center of the area for a chandelier to be added. The previous owner did not use it as a dining room and the MLS photos reflected this as it showed it with their living room furniture prior to them moving out.
Rooms With Style staged the property to reflect a dining room and in addition I put a larger table in the eat-in space in the kitchen. The kitchen area can now seat four instead of two; the "formal" dining area right outside the kitchen can now seat 4-6.
This home went from showing an area that only two could eat comfortably to seating for up to ten.
The first showing after the vacant home staging was a couple that looked at 32 homes. They listed this one as their Second favorite and it was their Realtor's favorite. How is that for changing opinions! The home sold shortly thereafter.
Listen to the feedback, when it is negative address it and do something about it whenever possible. A Professional Home Stager may be able to assist you.
