HOME STAGING: THE SECRET SAUCE FOR SELLING YOUR HOME

Just what is home staging anyway? And how does it help you sell your home?

In short, professional home staging is the “secret sauce” for selling your home in the shortest time, for the most money.

Home staging is a value-adding process that highlights the best features of your home, brings it in line with current buyer expectations and creates instant appeal for the most buyers. In general terms, home staging is a series of tasks that increase a home’s interior and exterior visual appeal.

Beyond cleaning and decluttering, home staging may include painting, some additional (rented) furniture, art and improving the look of outdoor areas.

Professional home staging need not be expensive – virtually any budget can make a difference. A professionally staged home can be listed (and sold) for 5% to 20% more than the same home unstaged.

ANY home can be staged to sell well. We can work within ANY budget.

Why Invest (More) in a Home You're Selling?

Would you rather sell your home in 6 weeks or 6 months?

Buyers only fall in love with homes where they can imagine themselves living their desired lifestyles. The more your home is customized for you, the less likely it is to have broad buyer appeal and the longer it will take to sell. This is because 90% of buyers can’t envision ‘possibilities’ – they only see what’s already there.

Time really is money when your home is on the market: the longer it takes to sell, the more likely it is that you’ll eventually want to consider a price reduction.

The good news: professionally staged homes typically sell about three times faster than homes offered “as is.”  They list higher and sell for more too.

Unlike major home upgrades such as a new roof, deck, kitchen or bathroom, home staging returns well over 100% of what you spend on it. And staging ALWAYS costs less than that first price reduction.

WHAT IF YOUR HOME IS VACANT?

If you have already moved to a new home and the place you’re selling is currently empty you may think it’s more cost-effective to just leave it vacant. That would be a big mistake. Please click here to learn more about why vacant homes should always be staged.
