Model Home Interiors
''And we`ve found that sales are accelerated, and the customer is happier knowing what type and quality of project the developer is doing. The model home is really what sets the character of the neighborhood. "
-Richard Faltz, Pres. Primus Corp
RESIDENTIAL NEW CONSTRUCTION: What does your model home say about "You" the Builder?
A model home is a silent salesperson. Merchandising is simply a way of packaging your product to your targeted market. Models are intended to influence home buyers by reinforcing their lifestyle desires, creating memory points and triggering their emotional hot buttons. This creates a sense of urgency in the buyer and solidifies their decision in choosing you- the Builder.
Today's buyer can be considered a "be back" on their first visit if you consider over 90% of buyers will have seen the home online first. A typical buyer will look at 50 homes, starting online, weeding out which homes they want to tour in person. Once the buyer walks in the door of your house, you can assume you've made it to their "top" list of homes they are considering for purchase. You have a matter of minutes to sell this buyer.
"Successful home staging is not a design contest.
It's not about taking risks with our client's hard earned money.
It is about understanding lifestyle desires of the home buyer
and crafting appealing solutions that draw them in
with fantastic subtlety". - Stayci Fast
