San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2007
With the current slow housing market, homeowners who are desperate to sell are being forced to look for unusual and creative ways to compete for buyers' attention.
Todays' Home Sellers are now, more frequently, using techniques like:
-Offering vacations, cars or other gifts to promote the sale of the home
-Hiring a "staging" company to strategically place fine furniture in the home, improving buyers' perception of the home
-Remodeling - including: removal of walls updating kitchens and bathrooms
-Adding patios, garages, deck, etc.
-Spending more on professional photos of the home
-Putting belongings in storage to reduce clutter
-Using additional alternative ways to market the home (newspaper ads, online advertising, traditional media, etc.)
-Adding a 1-year warranty to the sale of the home
To sell a home faster and for more money, today, it's going to take extra work and creativity to compete with the amount of homes on the market.
