This New Hampshire Stager Prefers Selling The Hard Way!

Being a professional Home Stager in Portsmouth, New Hampshire I'm no stranger to giving advice to sellers.  Now that my house is on the market I can honestly say, I prefer giving the advice to actually living it.

Living in "sell mode" is not for the faint of heart!

 Keeping your house show ready is a lot of work!

When you list your house for sale, you are transported from the real world to an uncomfortable, inconvenient  fantasy land where soap and towels aren't used and cabinets and closets now carry only a fraction of what you actually own and need to survive.

 

 Your giant TV and excercise bike are banished from the bedroom and your favorite chair has gained a slipcover and pillow and lost it's ottoman.  It's no fun having to make the beds, pick up laundry, and sweep the floors every day!

 

As stressful as it may be to live this way....I believe it beats the alternative.

 

I would rather suffer a bit more pain for the short term than suffer less pain but have it go on for eternity!

 

Once you decide to sell, your next decision is whether you want to sell the hard way or the easy way.

 

The hard way is living in show mode...very inconvenient, but much higher odds of selling sooner.

Higher pain - Shorter time period

The easy way is not giving up your conveniences.  "You gotta live" right?  

Less Pain - Longer time period

It's ultimately your decision as the seller.

This Portsmouth, New Hampshire (Stager) Seller prefers the hard way!
