  • The Markets ‘ April retail sales beat expectations Image by  Getty Images via  Daylife April retail sales rose 0.4 percent, the government said moments ago, a figure that was twice what forecasters were expecting, a sign that consumers are opening their wallets and spending. Removing auto sales from April retail sales did nothing to impact the number, indicating that new car sales rose at the same pace as other consumer goods. Same thing if you remove the volatile fuel and food costs. March retail sales were revised upward and grew at a rate of 1.2 percent. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/economy-watch/2010/05/april_consumer_beats_expectati.html
  • The Markets ‘ Europe Clouds U.S. Recovery The recovery is beating expectations as new data show consumer and manufacturing strength. But worries persist that it still isn't strong enough to heal deep wounds or withstand a new shock from Europe.

  • 2 . The Effect of Staging on the Value of a Home .
  • The process of preparing homes for sale regardless of Price, Location, or Condition To achieve the maximum sales price in the minimum marketing time. The GOAL is to appeal to the broadest range of BUYERS .
  • Non-Staged The Way You Live In Your Home…
  • … And The Way We Market And Sell A House Are Two Different Things. Staged
  • “ The Investment in Home Staging is Always Less than Your First Price Reduction!”
  • Non-Staged Buyers Only Know What They See …
  • … Not The Way It Is Going To Be. Staged
  • Based on a StagedHomes.com survey of over 400 homes across Canada & the Continental US prepared for sale by an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP™) from June 2007 through November 2007.
  • Why Promote Home Staging ? The average increase in sales price of an ASP Staged vs. non-Staged home is 6.9% . That is an additional $31,050 on a $450,000 sale.
  • The average marketing time of an ASP Staged vs. non-Staged home is 80% less . Why Promote Home Staging ?
  • 3. The Effect of ‘ Pre-Inspection’ on the Sale of Your Home.
  • What is ‘ Pre-Inspection?’
  • Home Inspection WHAT DOES PRE-INSPECTION INCLUDE? The standard home inspector's report will review the condition of the home's heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure.  
  • PRE-LISTING Home Inspection DOESN’T THE BUYER DO THE HOME INSPECTION?
  • All Negotiations, including real estate, are all about negotiation and control. Who is in control? Right Price Right Staging All Repairs are done in advance. Offer a Home Warranty to the buyer..
  • PRE-LISTING Home Inspection Data on where most sales fall apart: attorney review, home inspection. Fall Thru Percentage 2007: 26% Fall Thru Percentage 2008: 10.2% .
  • Home Improvements I am moving out of the house, I do not want spend too much money to move. Or I just spent $$ on a new kitchen, I want $$$$$$ back on that investment when I move.
  •  
  •  
  • Reality of today’s market is that you will see the return on your investment not in an inflated sales price but in retaining the highest percentage of your list price and staying on the market the fewest # of days. Please consult with your Realtor & staging professional as to which improvements you should finish to make your home the most salable.
