While the median house price in 2018 in the Shreveport Bossier and surrounding area is approximately $178,000, the exact price of your own home will depend on its size, neighborhood, and lots of other factors. Further complicating matters is your own skewed perspective: We tend to mentally inflate our home’s positives and airbrush out the flaws that are all too apparent to buyers. Durden Property Group will look at the prices of similarly sized homes that have recently sold in your area—data that agents call comparative market analysis, or “comps.” then, price your home strategically. If you price too high, the home is likely to linger on the market. Meanwhile, pricing low can have major upsides, resulting in multiple bids that could ultimately jack up your price. Call us and we will help you find the right price.

On average, a staged home sells 88% faster—and for 20% more money—than a home that’s left as is. The reason it works, of course, is it gives buyers a “stage” onto which they can play out their home-owning fantasies and envision themselves living in your home. Choose neutral paint colors and remove any family photos. Give would-be homeowners a blank canvass to imagine themselves and their loved ones in.

NO! There is not any situation in which this is appropriate. Having the owner in the house makes the buyers uncomfortable. They feel as though they can’t make comments or ask questions that could be offensive. The owner—who has a history and attachment to the house—has the tendency to argue if a potential buyer makes a comment that could be a little negative. This can turn off buyers and lose you offers.
