“You never get a second chance to make a great first impression.”

First impressions mean everything!

That statement that rings true in real estate! Buyers are quick to jump to conclusions about a home as soon as they glance at it. That’s why more sellers are turning toward professional home stagers to prepare for a sale.
A lot of what staging accomplishes occurs on a subconscious level—creating a positive link between your house and the prospective buyer. It’s easy enough to repaint after moving in, but first impressions are difficult to undo.

With the vast majority of buyers searching first on the Internet for homes, photos and virtual tours are extremely important in the selection process. Home staging will give sellers key advantages.

A professional stager will:

Help eliminate clutter: That means taking down personal items that add to the unnecessary clutter such as diplomas, pictures, trophies, and other knick-knacks. Removing a bulky piece of furniture may be necessary to widen a walk area or make a room feel spacious.

Unstaged overly crowded room gives the impression that the house is too small!

 

Consider buyer demographics and buying psychology:   Home stagers use design elements in planning out the rooms, space and lighting. They understand traffic patterns to highlight positive attributes of a home while downplaying its negative features. They know not to overwhelm potential buyers with wild colors and furniture, even if you think it makes your home “special.”

Remember, making your home look like a model rather than lived-in can make all the difference in selling a home. That’s why I offer seller’s a free home staging consultation to sellers who list their home with me.  I have an experienced stager / designer on my team that shapes up your home before it’s photographed. We will both roll up our sleeves that day and move furniture, carry boxes, clean up, and whatever else needs to be done. The value of having a professional with an eye for design is golden!  Every little detail makes a huge difference!

If you are looking for a luxury home with a Hill Country view, be sure to visit the model home of Vintage Estate Homes.

One of the great features of this builder is the customer service!  The company has a very small, close-knit team in Austin who develop a personal relationship with each individual client.   One sales counselor will support buyers through the entire building process, holding their hand (so to speak) so that the process isn’t overwhelming, but enjoyable. The goal of Vintage Estates Homes is to involve clients as much as possible in the design process so that the home is what the clients envision.  They also hold high standards for themselves to build it right the first time!IMG_7894

Designing a custom home can be an exciting project, and Vintage Estates Homes desires to make it as stress-free and fulfilling as possible.  If you would like to view the model home or explore West Cypress Hills & Vistancia, just ask me for a tour!

West Cypress Hills is a master planned community off Hwy 71 that has the best of both worlds!  Families can enjoy secluded hill country views on greenbelt lots, while having the convenience of nearby shopping and restaurants.  After touring this community, it is obvious why so many families with young children choose to call this place home.  Here are the top 5 reasons to move to West Cypress Hills:

  1. Nature!  This community spans over hundreds of acres, much of which will remain undeveloped.  The houses do not appear overcrowded, but instead your eye focuses on the beautiful oak trees and rolling hills.  Almost 90% of the homes adjoin a greenbelt area in the backyard!

  2. Great values!  West Cypress Hills features homes from Highland Homes and Milestone Community Builders.  Prices start in the low 300’s, which makes this community one of the more affordable in the area.  The homes have beautiful features inside and out.  Just take a look at these rooms!

  3. Award winning schools!  Young children can safely walk or ride bikes to West Cypress Hills elementary, which is located within the community.  It is newly built and part of the award-winning Lake Travis ISD.

  4. Amenities!  Families can enjoy the community center with a swimming pool, pavilion, soccer fields and playground area.  There are also plenty of hike and bike trails throughout the neighborhood.
  5. Location!  Although the neighborhood feels like it is out in the countryside, it is only about 10 minutes from the shopping area at the Hill Country Galleria.
