You only have one chance to make a first impression.
Real estate staging, styling, fluffing, – what ever you call it, is too often associated with decorating rather than marketing.
Home staging is defined as the art and science of selling a home in the shortest time for the highest value. It’s about utilizing the best furnishings, lighting, art and finishing touches to transform your home into a product that appeals to buyers so they can imagine living there. To have the biggest impact, you want to do this before the photos are taken to list on the internet.
Professional stagers can look at your property with an objective eye.
The $2000 to $4000 you spend to have your home staged to attract buyers usually ends up in a $10,000 to $15,000 increase in the sale price of your home, and or savings from it selling more quickly.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money, but you do need to be open to making some changes. Professional home stagers are trying to get you more money.
Professional home stagers know how to Make the Space Feel Bigger, Minimize the Flaws, Highlight the Positives, Choose the right colours, and make the space appeal to the most buyers.
According to “Staged Homes” the average number of days a home stays on the market without staging is 196 but with the added benefit of home staging, a home sells in an average of 33 days.
These are only a few reasons why you should hire a professional real estate stager. You can do some things yourself, like de-clutter, and clean, but when it comes to showcasing, hire a trained professional. Why do you think many successful new home builders use show homes to sell their communities?
