While it is true that home buyers often prefer new construction in Lemont, it isn’t necessarily true that that new home smell will always sell itself. Sometimes even home builders need the help of professional staging.
Home Builders Utilize Home Staging in Inventory Specs
Large Lemont home builders will frequently stage the models in master planned communities. Smaller new home builders often believe that their product will ‘sell itself’ and attempt to forgo professional home staging. In the case of one such builder, this ended up being more costly than they had anticipated.
While this home had all of the things that buyers look for: granite counters, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, modern lighting and more, this new home builder was unsuccessful in selling the home and after three months decided to call in the professionals.
After teaming up with a Lemont Realtor that works with Chicagoland Home Staging, a new plan was created. The home was professionally staged and the results were clear.
The home successful sold after only two weeks, showing that it’s not just the element of “NEW” that home buyers are looking for. They want a move-in ready luxurious home.
