What made this house sell in 5 days after going on the market!

June Walker of ReArrange YOURS recently staged this home and it received a contract in just five days after going on the market. 

In the opinion of Realtor Brent Whitworth, staging helped make it get a contract in short time.  This couple worked diligently with June to make the changes needed to first make the house photograph well and second to make it show well and sell. 

ReArrange YOURS procedure is to help the sellers understand their pros and cons that will enhance and also hurt the overall impression.  They strive to see the house as buyers see it and these sellers walked the route up to and through their home, they agreed to the tasks and worked beside June to get them done.  The key is in understanding the impressions made as buyers drive up and look through the home.  The sellers also saw how photography makes the first vital impression.  What people see in the photographs will kill motivation to make an appointment or put the home on the list to view since most buyers find and preview homes first on the internet.

The second impression is curb appeal.  When buyers enter the street where a home is located, they begin analzying whether this home is for them or not.  What they see is very important from this point until they walk through the front door.  So making the exterior front show well is extremely important especially in winter when things are dreary.  Weed and feed.  Add new mulch.  Add color and clean up the yard so it looks well maintained.  If your front door needs painting and fixtures need replacing, do it.  You want the buyers to start thinking that this house is theirs!  This home was competing with new construction so having the landscaping in place and well groomed for the buyer wins points! 

The next impression is just inside the door.  Buyers look forward, right, forward and then left.  You have about 15 seconds to make this vital positive impression.  As buyers move through the house you want them to see the selling features more than your decorating.  Help them see their families living there not you. 

So clear the clutter, personal items (including all photos, awards and anything with  your names on it) and excess furnishings and show off  hardwoods, architecture and rooms that look and feel large.  A clean decluttered room will appear larger and this couple worked hard to move the furniture ...even a piano...around so that the rooms feel much larger.  You will be surprised at how a few small moves really affects the way a room shows.

The last thing we did after decluttering and rearranging this home was to photograph it so we can see what the buyers will see BEFORE the professional photos are taken.  This will help sellers know if more should be done to open up the spaces.

There's so much more we do to make homes sell faster at the price you want...and we can help you as well.  See the blog posting by Realtor Brent Whitworth below to verify this home went under contract in five days after getting it staged and on the market!  For more information on ReArrange YOURS services and references, go to  We can help!

House staged by ReArrange YOURS has contract five days after staging!

Chad and Bethany's house is under contract in just 5 days on the market! I think the staging had a large part to do with that.

Thanks again.

This couple worked with ReArrange YOURS lead stager June Walker and did everything that was asked of them to remove clutter clutter clutter and work with June on rearranging rooms that needed help.  So...this is more proof staging works whether sellers use our reports and do it themselves or... like Bethany and Chad... they work with us to clear and stage for photography and active marketing!  Check out what other realtors say on the home page of and see our portfolio and comments from happy clients.

It's almost Spring...If you are selling your this staging tip!

Selling in a competitive market takes a real strategy to show and sell well.  If your goal is a fast sale at the best price, you have to make some sacrifices.  The minute you sign the contract to sell...set your mind on the fact that this property is no longer's the buyer's.  This means you have to stage it so the buyers see themselves living there...not your family.  Think model home...that's what it should be when the buyers drive up and walk through it. 

So make the commitment and do what buyers do.  Drive by and see what they see.  Drive up, park, walk in the front door.  These are the first impressions and they need to be good.  Once inside, look forward, right then left.  You have 15 seconds to make the next best impression.  This is the time when buyers either move through quickly and leave FOREVER...or they come back and look again.  If you've done your job and the property shows well...they could immediately make a contract. 

Now move on through the house and out back to see what they see.  Be painfully truthful with yourself.  What keeps your home and grounds from showing like a model home?  Now go to work!  Selling can be painful but when the clean up and staging is will feel so much better and so will those who view your property.

Once the work is done, take photos from drive the door...through the house and grounds.  This is what buyers will see when they are on line looking for a home.  This is the very first impression that motivates the appointment.
