There are many benefits to staging your home before you put it on the market. Here are a few.
Staging Your Home: Will Sell It Faster. – Studies show that staging you home will help you sell it sell up to 50% faster than a non-staged home. This is more important than most people realize, because the longer a home is on the market, the greater chance for a price reduction and/or a lower offer.
Staging Your Home: Maximizes the Value of the Home. – Staged homes sell at a higher price. Statistics show that the seller of a staged home receives 6-14% more money in their pocket at closing.
Staging Your Home: Gives an Unforgettable First Impression. – People’s first impression of a home is critical. A staged home gives an inviting, stylish appearance inside and out that creates a lasting first impression. Photographs tend to be more favorable and will draw the attention of the buyers who are choosing the homes they want to visit from the internet.
Staging Your Home: Takes Away the Guess Work. – Staging a home depersonalizes a home and allows a potential buyer to envision themselves living there. It highlights the features and tells a potential buyer the home is well maintained.
Staging Your Home
Staging an occupied home is much different than staging a vacant home. Truly. In an occupied home, the homeowner uses their own furnishings to showcase their home, and a home stager will type up a report with their professional recommendations of what to do to enhance the staging of the home. In a vacant home, a professional home stager will bring in furniture and accessories to decorate certain rooms. It’s that simple. Typically the furniture will come from the home stager’s inventory, a furniture rental company, or a furniture store that will lease their furniture in hopes to advertise and sell their furniture.
When a professional home stager comes to an occupied home they will immediately start taking notes the minute they drive up to the home. Watch them! The exterior of the home is just as important as the interior. First impressions are critical! The most common exterior recommendations are: edging the lawn, trimming the trees, raking and pruning bushes, minor repairs, and cleaning exterior surfaces. After the curb appeal is addressed, the interior recommendations could consists of packing away collections, organizing closets, minimizing furniture in each room, painting neutral colors, depersonalizing, and furniture placement. A professional home stager usually charges a fee, which can range anywhere from $75-$200, depending on the size and marketability of the home.
