Shrewsbury is a town in Worcester County, Massachusetts, United States. Shrewsbury, unlike other surrounding towns like Grafton, Millbury, Westborough, and Northborough did not become a mill town or farming village, rather most of its 19th-century growth was due to its proximity to Worcester and visitors to Lake Quinsigamond. The population was 35,608 according to the 2010 US Census, in nearly 12,400 households.

Incorporated in 1727, the town is governed now under the New England representative town meeting system, headed by the Town Manager and five-member elected Board of Selectmen whose duties include licensing, appointing various administrative positions, and calling a town meeting of citizens annually or whenever the need arises.

Top 5 Staging Tips for home sellers has been put together to help home sellers sell their home faster and for more money. Real estate agents who research the results of selling a home that is staged versus a home that is not, find that staged homes sell on average 30 days faster and for 17% more money. As a home stager, I can make a number of small changes to a property that can dramatically shorten the time it spends on the real estate market while also increasing the final sales price. Below is 1 of 5 tips, please come back next week to check out # 2 of the remaining 4 tips. The first of the top 5 staging tips for home sellers deals with the exterior of the home.

1. Reduce “Let’s skip this one” during drive-bys

When Staging Your Home to Sell, imagine you’re a homebuyer on a house-hunting mission. Your real estate agent has ten properties to show you on a Saturday afternoon. When you drive up to what could be your dream home, you see a rusted-out mailbox, broken handrail and children’s toys strewn across an unmowed lawn. You don’t have any time to waste, so you’re probably going to say, “Let’s move on,” skipping the showing appointment entirely.

When Staging Your Home to Sell, CURB APPEAL helps draw prospective buyers into your home. If the outside of a house looks unkempt, it creates an impression that the property is not cared for. To enhance curb appeal:

• Ensure the lawn is freshly cut and that leaves are raked. In winter, snow should be shoveled from the driveway and walkways.

• Make the entrance more welcoming with a seasonally appropriate planted urn or hanging plant.

• Repair or replace any obvious defects. Often this is cheaper to do than a prospective buyer will imagine.

• Make sure the walkways and porches are swept clean and garbage and recycling containers are tucked away at the rear of the house or in the garage.

• Ensure the exterior gets a good pressure wash and the decks are scrubbed clean. It’s a good alternative to painting. Once everything’s clean, you might discover it doesn’t need to be repainted at all; perhaps just a touch-up will do.

Looking for a fantastic deal? Yes, it’s true that real estate market is on it’s way up and a good value proposition is few and far between these days. So when it comes along, you need to jump at the opportunity. One of these kinds of opportunities is when you come across a distressed home. A distressed property is typically either a property that is owned by a lending institution or is going through a short sale process. In this situation, the lender is involved in the decision making process. And since lenders are in the business of lending money and not owning real estate, they are eager to sell these homes.

Short sale process is a lengthy one as the accepted offer needs to be presented to the lender and the lender decides if they would be willing to accept the offer. A buyer interested in going through a short sale process, should be willing to wait as long as 6 months for the transaction to culminate in a closing. So, the process is not for everyone. But the people who can wait, can come out with a wonderful opportunity to have instant equity, just like this Short sale home in Auburn has a price reduction.

DO’S AND DON’TS OF SELLING YOUR HOME WHEN LOOKING TO DO IT FASTER AND FOR MORE MONEY.

DO’S AND DON’TS OF SELLING YOUR HOME WHEN LOOKING TO DO IT FASTER AND FOR MORE MONEY.

Some people think that selling a home is all about how good the real estate agent is. And yes, hiring a professional with years of education, experience and a marketing plan will certainly make the process go smoother and more likely to sell your home. But a smart real estate professional will enlist the home owner as a team member to sell the property faster and for more money. After all, isn’t that is why you’re hiring a real estate professional for? To sell the home quickly and for top dollar.

Here is a list of Do’s and Don’ts of selling your home that I share with my team members. A dedicated seller will take this list to heart and apply as many of these Do’s and Don’ts of selling your home constantly and consistently throughout the selling process.

Do’s and Don’ts of selling your home in any real estate market:

• Have a marketing plan in mind with multiple scenarios for home selling, not selling and selling quickly.
• Prepare the home for sale: Stage it – neutralize it and minimize it. Remove clutter inside and out. Remove personal items. Hide valuables and collections. All of these are a distraction.
• Write a list of features, updates and upgrades for your agent so no detail is overlooked
• Fill out seller’s disclosure forms as honestly and detailed as possible. You don’t want to renegotiate on items after the home inspection that should have been disclosed in the first hand.
• Talk to a lender if you are looking to buy another house right away so that there are no surprises when the house is sold.
• Check in on your communication with your real estate professional as a good agent will need to confirm marketing set up initially.
• Make your home available for showings no matter what. Make it easy to see the property, even it fit means short notice or staying at home.
• Take out dogs as many people are afraid of animals.
• Replace energy saving bulbs with bright ones. Leave all the lights on.
• Play soft classical music and add mild scent (cookies or bread baking/ vanilla is best)
• Return your agents calls and emails as soon as possible as there might be a time sensitive offer waiting for you.

This list of Do’s and Don’ts of selling your home list will get your home sold faster and for more money. Talk to your real estate professional for more details.
