We provide a large suite of services for you to pick and choose from, in addition to our comprehensive full service packages. We are committed to offering you the exact level of help you need at a price you will love. Pre-listing consultations are a great service we offer to homeowners or property owners.
Why Should You Get a Pre-Listing Consultation?
Whether you’re getting ready to rent or sell your property, pre-listing consultations are incredibly valuable for homeowners or property owners that want to ensure their property is in tip-top shape before putting it on the market. Pre-listing consultations can identify any repairs or replacements that should be done before a final price gets applied to the home. Having a second set of eyes to walk through and spot potential issues may just bring things to light you hadn’t considered before.
What Does a Pre-Listing Consultation Consist Of?
Pre-listing consultations are comprehensive walk-throughs of the property owner’s property. We will look at different systems and components inside and outside of the home to identify any potential strong selling points or repairs that should be done. A pre-listing consultation typically takes 2-3 hours and can also include professional staging recommendations, help to rearrange furniture, and suggestions to depersonalize the room. We will provide you with a written copy of the many things we review during the consultation so that you don’t miss a thing. Red Umbrella’s experts can let you know what buyers want and how to reflect current buying and selling trends in your home.
After Your Pre-Listing Consultation
After the consultation, you will have a list of things that you can choose to repair, replace, or leave the way they are. While there is no such thing as a perfect house, small repairs like a dripping faucet or tiny hole in the wall can be repaired inexpensively. Since we are a full service company, Red Umbrella can provide cost estimates for all work that we recommend and take care of hiring a contractor to complete the work, supervising the work, and finishing the job. Taking the stress of repairs off your plate is just one of the many benefits of using our prelisting and other services. Many small issues can add up to the buyer asking for a great deal off the asking price, so being proactive can really pay off.
Home Staging Services
Red Umbrella Property Management Services offers a variety of a la carte services for properties and homeowners looking for a skilled company to complete only part of the job. We provide a large suite of services for you to pick and choose from, in addition to our comprehensive full service packages. Many customers that use our home staging services also benefit from our a la carte pre-listing walkthrough service, so consider making a bundle with both!
Why is Home Staging Important?
Home staging is a service to make your home look better than it does any day of the week. Some people think that staging a home is just tidying up a little bit extra or putting a wreath on the door, but it goes much beyond that. Home staging creates a welcoming atmosphere in your home to have prospective tenants and buyers think, “Wow, I could totally live here!”
What Does Home Staging Involve?
Like we alluded to above, home staging goes beyond simply cleaning up and completing repairs. Staging is done after you have already cleaned, organized, painted, and repaired your home. Think of all of your work beforehand like taking a shower and home staging like putting on a nice necklace and lipstick. The home will not look like this every day, but selling your home is a special occasion worth dressing up for. If you don’t have lots of decorations or décor objects already in your house, don’t worry! Professional home staging can bring in additional objects like mirrors, houseplants, flowers, table or floor lamps, pillows, or table decorations to set your space apart.
How Can Home Staging Affect Your Bottom Line?
Home staging can have a huge effect on the amount that your house sells for and whether or not it sells period. Over 80% of realtors in a survey conducted by Realtor.org agree that it helps buyers to visualize the property as their future home, and almost half said home staging positively impacts the home’s value. Even if the increase in value home staging adds to your property is only 5%, that 5% adds up quickly!
