When potential buyers first enter your home, it is the first impression that will stay with them when considering purchase which make home staging very important. When buyers are typically looking at multiple homes in the same day, making your home memorable can be done with strategic staging. You are helping the buyer to see the potential without leaving it up to their imagination. If a home is empty without furniture it can be difficult for some buyers to imagine themselves living in it.

 

What is a home stager? A home stager is similar to an interior decorator. They have expertise on choosing colors, fabrics and furniture and arranging them to have the best, most functional appeal.

 

Why should I stage my home? According to the Real Estate Staging Association®, professionally listed staged properties spend 87 percent less time on the market. In California if a home is staged prior to going on the market it will sell 5x’s faster than a home that is not staged.

 

What process is involved in Home Staging?

 

1.) Plan – Develop an action plan that helps to highlight the strengths and downplay the weaknesses. For example, removing heavy curtains from a window with a great view or downsizing oversized furniture to make the room look bigger.

 

2.) Declutter – Too much clutter or disorder in a house can give a buyer the impression that the house does not have enough storage space or was not well maintained

 

3.) Repairs – Schedule any needed repairs. This includes worn carpet, loose door knobs, leaky faucets, broken screens, paint, etc… Properties that are move-in ready are more appealing to buyers.

 

4.) Reorganize – Bring in furniture, artwork, bedding, pillows and some home décor to create a balanced and invited space. Many home stagers have warehouses of items to help your home feel like your buyers dream home.

 

How much money could you save by staging your home? The Real Estate Staging Association® study show 63 homeowners had their property on the market 143 days before staging. If their mortgage and expenses are $2,100 per month they could have saved $8,400 if they staged it before listing it.

 

Choosing the right agent with the right expertise is so important when selling your home. Rick Sauer believes his role as your Realtor is to guide you through the buying or selling process, taking the time to make sure you understand every step of the transaction. If you have any questions about selling your home, give him a call. Rick Sauer believes in home staging and will even cover the costs!

Nick Barnett, former professional football player who won Super Bowl XLV with the Green Bay Packers, sells his Carlsbad home for $2.2 million.

Nick's House

As you turn the corner to enter Paseo Elegancia, you can’t help but be captured by this homes grand stature, sitting at the end of the street, with its very own cul-de-sac & brilliant ocean view in the distance. You’ve yet to step through the front entrance, but already you know this home is very special. With over half an acre and not a neighbor to be found on either side, privacy may start to take the descriptive lead.

Surrounded by a natural preserve in the heart of Carlsbad, you will find this 2001 built Semi-Custom home with New Viking Kitchen Appliances, Downstairs Guest Suite as well as private, with separate entrance, Granny-flat, are just a few of the many amenities found within this dream home. 6 car garage in this gated compound has room for as many as 8 cars (Tandem) making the perfect home for a nice car collection. The pool, spa and gazebo in the spacious backyard lends to an outdoor paradise with unobstructed views of the La Costa Golf Course, Pacific Ocean and a night-scape that absolutely comes alive as the sun sets before your eyes.

Nick Barnett is a native Californian born in Barstow, California and attended Fontana A.B. Mille High School in Fontana, California. He spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers, earning All-Pro honors in 2007.

The listing agent on this property was Steve Lincoln from Windermere Homes & Estates. He was the original listing agent on the property in 2014 when Nick Barnett originally purchased the home and now is Nick’s active listing agent 3 years later. Steve has been the #1 agent in the Aviara area for 2 years in a row. The Windermere Homes & Estates office in Carlsbad has over 100 agents and in just 3 short years has become one of the top offices in market share for the Carlsbad area. The Windermere office and agents continue to dominate the market, including a recent closing of over $10 million by agent Thad Hutton, who represented the buyer.

Being a 35-year resident of Cardiff by-the-Sea, Dorothy has an intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods and details of our beautiful North County communities.  This, combined with her extensive experience in the real estate industry, enables her to serve sellers and buyers in a much more personal and professional manner.

A successful transaction is a closed transaction.  Knowing how to put the deal you want and need together and getting it closed when it should is her specialty.  Dorothy uses the skills and knowledge from her former positions as the head of the transaction coordination department of a leading brokerage with 19 offices in California and Nevada and later, General Manager of this same company to get clients the deals they deserve.

For investors Dorothy uses her expertise from helping to establish a 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange division for New Century Title.  There she ran a profitable department with the responsibility of handling and closing thousands of exchange transactions for investment property, giving her an insider’s knowledge of an aspect of the industry that few Real Estate agents understand.

Dorothy says “I’m eager to hear your story and help you realize your dreams.”
