First Off, What is Staging?
Is the act of preparing your home for sale. The goal is appeal to the largest audience in order to sell your house for top dollar & as quickly as possible. This is achieved by de-cluttering, rearranging, adding or removing furniture and adding accent pieces.
Okay, So Does it Really Work?
Did you know that a home that is properly staged will sell for 10% more than one that isn’t?
$300,000 house X 10% = $30,000 in your pocket!!
That’s a lot of money…you could go on vacation or buy a car or put it towards your new house!
What do you do when you start looking for a home? Go online and endlessly click through photos of houses and decide which ones you like and don’t like. 90% percent of buyers pick their home based on the pictures they see online. Photos of a staged home look much better online and in print, so they are more likely to pick your staged home to go through.
You may think “Surely people can look past my paint & furniture.” Your wrong. Only 10% of the population can look past your furnishing and decor. If your house is not “show ready” you could potentially be losing 90% of buyers!
If selling your home fast is important to you, then you will find this fact interesting. According to the Real Estate Staging Association professionally staged homes spend 73% less time on the market. That’s quite a difference!
What should you do about a room or even an entire home that is vacant?
Did you know that a room that is vacant actually looks smaller than one that is professionally furnished? If you don’t believe this check out our video of us staging one of our vacant listings.
Okay so your convinced staging sounds like a good idea.
But How Much Does It Cost?
Costs can range from a couple of hundred dollars to $5,000 or more. The average cost is said to be around $1,800.
