The Benefits of Home Staging

Most of us that are selling our home understand the concept of de-cluttering and de-personalizing a space.  We also likely feel that the position of our furniture is just fine.  It never hurts to get a set of fresh eyes on your space.  A home stager can add many benefits in affecting a timely sale.

Many people make a judgement about your home within the first 30 - 60 seconds upon entering it.  You want to make a great impression immediately to hold their attention and create warm feelings about your home.  Real estate is emotional for most of us!  Whether your home is vacant and void of furniture or you are currently residing in the home, a home stager can help.

Staged homes sell an average of 30% - 50% faster than non-staged homes.  Remember, the longer a home is on the market, buyers will expect a price reduction.  You don't want buyers wondering what is wrong with your home when it has been on the market for a long period of time.  I consider the first 30 days a critical time period in selling any home!

Staged homes give the appearance of being well maintained.  Most of us are visual, so it helps to see that a home is move in ready.  Staged homes typically appraise higher than their non-staged counterparts.  This can help to affect a higher sales price.  Staged homes get more attention and are shown more often.  All of this creates a competitive advantage in the market place! 

So consider talking to a home stager when selling and realize your real estate goals faster and for more money!  Thanks for reading!
