Don’t most of us love to watch the home makeover reality shows on TV?! There is something magical about seeing dramatic “before and after results” taking place in an hour, right before our eyes!
The allure of a professionally staged home allows Buyers to see your property in its best possible light, ready to take on the new homeowner’s personality. From the family home, rental properties, or lavish luxury mansions, nearly every type of realty benefits from Professional Home Staging. There is just something to be said about first impressions!
About one-third of buyer’s agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between one and five percent compared to other similar homes on the market that are not staged.
The only questions are those you should ask yourself: “Do I want to maximize my property equity when it comes time to sell?” and “Would I like to sell my property in the shortest possible timeframe?” If you answered yes to either of these questions, you’ve just answered yes to Home Staging!
A few things to keep in mind. Home staging is not interior decorating; save that for your new home. Home staging is about making the spaces in your current home as appealing as possible to the widest range of prospective buyers. It’s about laying the foundation for their vision of their new home.
Sometimes it’s as simple as editing and redesigning what you already have. Sometimes it’s about adding things to enhance a room’s finest features. But it’s always about using a combination of experience and talent to bring out the very best in your property’s show-ability.
Thirty-nine percent of sellers’ agents stated that staging a home greatly decreases the amount of time the home is on the market.
A professional stager offers much more than furniture rental services. They help you understand the most worthwhile changes to make in preparing for sale. Subtle changes that may include a paint color evaluation, maximization of curb appeal, re-designing furniture layouts in occupied homes, adding or editing artwork and accessories, and many other such enhancements.
It’s a Proven Fact. You will net more from the sale of your home when it’s professionally staged.
The investment in home staging is usually a fraction of the total return you’ll realize from increased equity proceeds.
Depending on your property’s needs, home staging fees are frequently less than 1% of the listing price. While the potential increase in sales proceeds for a professionally staged home is 4-15%!
According to Forbes that well-staged homes sell up to 87% faster than non-staged properties and appraise for higher sales prices.
