home staging and property enhancement

Home staging gives San Diego home sellers a big advantage!

Prepare your home to sell with home staging

Have you noticed that brand new homes sell in both good markets and in bad? That's because builders create beautiful model homes with strong visual and emotional appeal. Buyers are drawn to these fresh, well-decorated homes that are well-maintained and in perfect condition. With that in mind, Neal Hribar developed the most comprehensive San Diego home staging program in the real estate industry to help his clients sell their homes. He has become one of the top home staging Realtors® in the nation.   Click here to see examples of home staging.

Why is home staging so important?

First impressions are everything and buyers form an immediate opinion of your home within moments of entering. If a buyer doesn't get excited when they walk in the front door, you may never get another chance to change their mind! That's why home staging is so important to help you achieve a quick sale at the best price. Home staging creates the right first impression in the minds of potential buyers.

Make your home more appealing

Home staging is also called home enhancement or property enhancement. On the east coast they sometimes call it home fluffing. The goal of Neal's San Diego home staging program is to present his clients properties at their best - just like new homes - so they sell quickly and for the highest price. When he stages a client's home, Neal strives to create that perfect model-home look that excites buyers.

Home staging is important

Neal believes that home staging is a critical part of being a true real estate professional. Less experienced real estate agents often lack the confidence or the trained eye to discuss property enhancement with their clients. It's a real disservice to market a home in "as is" condition because thousands of dollars are left on the table . . plus it take longer to sell. So, when you list your home for sale, make sure you hire a home staging Realtor®

You'll lose money if you don't stage your home

When showing homes to buyers, Neal is often amazed at how poorly some homes present. Even the most simple and basic things such as a good interior cleaning, touch-up painting and minor yard work are often ignored. Homes that have not been enhanced are the ones that sit on the market for a long time or they receive "low ball" offers. Don't make this costly mistake!

Pressure-wash the exterior siding, patios and walkways for a clean fresh look.
Repaint the exterior trim, shutters and the front door.
Install a new doorbell button and chime with a pleasing sound.
Place a new friendly welcome mat at the front door.
Clean the entry lock set or install a new bright brass one at the front door.

Make needed repairs throughout the house and take care of deferred maintenance.

Lubricate squeaky doors so they are not a distraction.
Replace burned-out light bulbs and clean or install new interior light fixtures.

Replace old dirty ivory electrical switches and receptacles with contemporary white Decora fixtures.
Remove those small throw rugs and plastic runners to give a more open feel.
