It today’s video from Nick Fong, the founder and broker of Ronival Real Estate, Nick shares how to sell your home faster in Los Cabos. In the video, Nick focuses on furniture. You’ll be surprised by what he has to say about selling your house furnished vs. unfurnished. As you’ll see, it all depends on the furniture itself.
Being the number one real estate broker in Mexico, Nick Fong knows what works and what doesn’t. Therefore, read on to learn from the best – uncover what works and what doesn’t work when selling your home in Los Cabos.
Sell your home furnished vs. unfurnished according to Nick Fong
The answer to this question is actually very sensible. As Nick states in the video, if your furniture is old and decrepit, either sell it or donate it. Then, sell your home unfurnished. This provides a nice blank canvas for your homebuyer to furnish and decorate how they please.
Nine times out of ten, the emotion of the buyer makes all the difference in whether they make the purchase. If your furniture is new and contemporary, they will likely love it after they feel pleased from their first impression. But if the house or condo is empty and clean, their imagination will carry them away blissfully, providing the same result – a purchase.
It does a seller no good to try to sell a home with old and outdated furniture. The first impression will be poor, and there will be zero inspiration. As a seller, it’s very important to inspire those who view your property. Therefore, optimize that experience with either new and attractive furniture, or a nice clean blank canvas for them to build upon.
Proper staging is critical for selling your home
Setting the “stage” for that first impression is called Home Staging. Staging your home is about transforming the possibilities to broaden the scope of potential buyers and get you top value for your home.
First impressions matter. Therefore, make your home stand out the instant buyers pull up to the curb. Some upgrades can be done in a weekend and will cost more in sweat equity than actual dollars.
Here are some suggestions: rent a pressure washer to remove dirt and grime from your siding, roof, fascia and gutters. Paint the front door and/or shutters a bright color, but make sure it coordinates well with the rest of the home’s colors. Replace old house numbers, lighting, the mailbox and welcome mat.
Clean up the edging around flowerbeds and lay down fresh mulch. Fill in empty beds with small shrubs, seasonal flowers and greenery. Even if it’s the dead of winter, get a pair of urns or large planters and fill them with small evergreen shrubs and cold-hardy annuals. If you have window boxes, fill them with fresh greenery too. If your porch or stoop has room for furniture, add a couple of chairs to expand your outdoor living space.
