Cape Coral Home Staging: Does it make a difference?

Home staging: Does it make a difference?

It seems to be universally accepted that home staging will help your home sell faster or for the best price—it’s been the common practice in the real estate business for a long time, and on the surface it seems like a no-brainer. Of course potential buyers will be more interested if a home is properly decorated, right?

That’s not necessarily true, according to a recent academic study. The study surveyed 820 homebuyers by showing them one of six virtual tours of the same property. In some instances the home was decorated with traditional furniture and color schemes, while in others more eccentric furniture and colors were used. In other tours there was no furniture at all, just empty rooms.

The overall results of the study were that staging is unlikely to increase a home’s sale price, and that staging isn’t quite as important as everyone believes.  As for studies, we’ve seen it both ways, that yes it increases value and we’ve seen no it doesn’t.

Of course, real estate trends vary greatly from market to market. If you have questions about staging, talk to your trusted real estate professional.

Thinking of Buying A Cape Coral Home? Have you checked your credit

YOUR FREE ANNUAL CREDIT REPORT IS WAITING

 

FREE Annual Credit Report

FREE Annual Credit Report

Here’s something every American consumer should remember to do every year, and I’m wondering if you’ve gotten around to it yet—requesting your no-cost credit reports from AnnualCreditReport.com.

This is the official website where you can access your complimentary reports from the three credit bureaus once every 12 months. Several similar sites may come with a price.

Errors on credit reports are probably more common than you think, and many will be discovered only by reviewing your reports closely. I hope you’ll take time to check yours out today.

And of course, if you have questions about credit and home financing, would like to refer a friend or family member, or even just want to say hi, please reach out using the contact info below. I’m truly happy to assist and thank you for your business.

CapeCoralHomeFlood

We at Pearsall Properties are here to help homeowners in the Cape Coral Fort Myers area with flood information on their homes.  If you are buying or selling a home in Cape Coral or buying or selling a home in Fort Myers this could be useful information for you and your family.

Lee County provides Flood Insurance Rate Map information that is required for a National Flood Insurance Program.  They also offer flood protection assistance about your structure or parcel, and this may include a site visit. Some jurisdictions may also send you a “FIRM” letter listing both the required information and additional information including:

All FIRM panel information;

Flood zone and base flood elevation, presence of floodway or COBRA/OPA zone

Coastal High Hazard Area, Coastal Building Zone, Windspeed Building Risk Category

Evacuation Zone

Watershed identification and related issues

Everyone can access basic FIRM information through an online search by address, owner or STRAP number at http://leegis.leegov.com/floodzone

Additional flood hazard research specific to a parcel can be done at http://leegis.leegov.com/leespins

Know the flood warning systems, protect investment in property and contents with flood insurance.
