Staging will improve any property, in any price range, on any budget! I’ll find the solution that requires the minimum investment of time and money for the maximum impact.
High real estate prices, so many properties on the market, and busy, two income families have made buyers more critical and less willing to “settle” for properties that are not in “move in” condition. In this competitive market it’s more important than ever for homes to be in great “show” condition.
People buy on emotion once their initial requirements are met ( three bedrooms, two bathrooms, etc.). Staging shows potential buyers the homes’ possibilities and helps to convey the feeling of well–lived lives. Neutralizing and depersonalizing the space helps prospective buyers visualize themselves in the home and encourages them to “mentally move in”!
Selling a home offers the greatest opportunity for the largest return on investment, in the shortest period of time, that most people ever have. A relatively small investment can mean big $$$. Don’t leave money on the table!
Real estate experts agree that staged homes sell faster and for more money than their non–staged counterparts. Estimates are 6% – 7% higher sale price for staged homes. On a $500,000 home, that’s an additional $30,000 – $35,000!
A Home Staging Consultation gives you a detailed plan to enhance the presentation of your home. A home stager will save you money by prioritizing things that will give you the most “bang for your buck” and offering the most cost effective solutions to challenges. You decide which recommendations to follow, whether to do all of it or some of it yourself or hire the stager to assist you.
The staging process gives you a head start editing and packing. That makes the selling process less stressful and your move easier, and less expensive too!
A home stager takes the pressure off of you. You’ll have a partner, and can feel confident that all of the issues will be addressed and that your home will be in the best possible “show” condition, considering the circumstances. (time until listed, willingness and $ available)
Hiring a home stager lets you get on with your future plans and allows your Realtor use their valuable time to effectively market your home.
The cost of hiring a home stager will be reflected in the asking and selling price of your home.
Staging works whether it’s a buyer’s market …when there are many homes on the market, the homes that stand out sell quickly for top dollar… or a seller’s market …when there aren’t many homes on the market, there are many buyers competing for the best homes. This leads to multiple offers, which drives the price up!
And if all this isn’t enough to convince you to hire a home stager, consider this: your first price reduction would pay for a lot of home staging!
