The Importance of Staging Your Home

Today we are joined by our wonderful new listing specialist, Christine Felix. She is here with us today to talk about one of the most important aspects of selling your home: staging. 

People may neglect staging if the market is "hot", but that is a huge mistake. Even if homes are selling fast, making your home look attractive to buyers is only going to help you down the road. 

There are a few different "levels" to staging, starting with decluttering. The first step is getting all the unnecessary knick knacks out. The second level is a thorough and deep cleaning, as well as rearranging furniture.

To properly stage your home, you don't need to hire a great company to come put a model home in, you simply need to work with what you have and make your home look as attractive as possible to buyers. They make their decision on whether they like your home or not in the first 10 seconds they are inside. The first impression is oh so important.

Staging is so important, and we just want to bring awareness to that, for your sake. Just by cleaning and decluttering your home, you can get over an 800% return on your investment

If you want to know how staging can sell your home, or if you'd like a no-obligation consultation from one of our staging professionals, please give us a call or send us an email. We'd love to help you make your home look its best.

Take Advantage of Low Interest Rates Before They Rise

The market in Palm Springs is hot right now – and is only getting hotter! Statistics indicate very strong market conditions in Palm Springs and projections are showing the market ascending into a state of profitability for those who are looking to sell or invest in real estate.

In February 2014, Freddie Mac released a report on 30 year fixed mortgage rates from 2003-2013. After the market crash of 2008, interest rates dipped lower and lower as the government was working to stimulate the market by offering incentives and keeping interest rates low. As I’m sure you can remember, these were not fun times!

As interest rates hit their lowest in 2012, the government has since backed off of their bond purchasing programs. In turn, interest rates have started to creep back up. In January 2013, rates were sitting a little over 3.25%. Since then, rates have gone back forth but are stabilizing and will soon be on the rise.

In the first quarter of 2015:
  • Fannie Mae predicts interest rates to be sitting at 4.9%
  • National Association of Realtors predicts interest rates to be sitting at 5.5%
  • Freddie Mac predicts interest rates to be sitting at 5.1%
  • Mortgage Bankers Association predicts interest rates to also be sitting at 5.1%
After taking all of this into account, the bottom line is that now is the perfect time to refinance, buy and/or sell. The Morgner Group would love to help you with all of your real estate needs!
