This is a bit tough to answer without more detail, but in general I would say flooring is going to have the greater impact. Is budget the reason you are only choosing one of these? Why are these the only two options being considered?Good luck with your decision.
Homes are selling in Pittsburgh, but price and condition are key to how quickly they are moving. I've seen homes that are well-staged, move-in ready, and appropriately priced selling in less than a week here.
We often have a hard time seeing our own home objectively. A professional stager brings a trained and objective eye to the property and makes prioritized recommendations on how to best prepare the to have the best impact on potential buyers. Effective staging is more important now than ever when there are more homes on the market and fewer buyers. Staging is a cost-effective way to set your property apart from the competition. The staging investment costs way less than a seller's first price reduction and the statistics show that staged homes sell faster, reducing carrying and marketing costs for the seller and the realtor. In addition, buyers shop with logic and buy on emotion. Professional staging helps buyers to make the emotional connection with a home that leads to a purchase. Buyers pick the house that "feels right" the one that "feels like home" for them.
I'm hoping your showings and the interest in your lovely home have picked up.Now that the summer season is upon us, you might want to replace your outside photos of both your home and your development with new photos showing the lush greenery of the warm weather. Add some pots of colorful flowers to the front porch of your home and some in the back as well.Good luck!
The cost of professionally staging your home is almost always less than the a price reduction. And the statistics clearly show that professionally staged homes sell more quickly and for a better price. You also need to factor in the message you send when you reduce the price. Do you want to look desperate in the eyes of your prospective buyers? Price reductions can often bring in lowball offers. On the other hand, a well-staged home helps the buyer create an emotional connection with your home. Home buyers shop with logic and then buy based on emotion. You have to go beyond just meeting the criteria on their checklist (i.e. 4 bdrm/ 2.5 baths, etc.) and help them see themselves and their family enjoying living in the home.
