What is professional staging?
Home Staging is the strategic preparation of a home to sell. It is creating and marketing a lifestyle to prospective buyers through the use of emotional connecting points so they can fall in love with the home and feel at home. A professional home stager has training and resources and can objectively view the home and highlight its assets while downplaying its flaws.
How much does it cost?
For as little as $250 you can have a detailed list of what you can do to maximize the value of your home!
The housing market is good, so why do I need to stage?
Even if your house sells quickly in a good market, it doesn’t mean it sold for the amount it would have sold for had it been professionally staged. Sellers who spent .5% of the value of their home on staging saw a 100% return on investment!
Why can't I just stage my own home?
Many home sellers do not successfully stage their own homes because they find it challenging to look at their home objectively, and they cannot see its flaws. Furthermore, they are emotionally connected to the memories and find it difficult to change it. Professional home stagers stage homes for a living and know the techniques to effectively market a home.
Can't home buyers use their imagination and look past my decor or empty rooms?
Only 10% of home buyers can actually visualize the potential of a home. Also, they often think that the home's repairs cost more than they actual do. You do not want buyers walking through your home creating a mental checklist of all the items that need to be addressed as soon as they move in.
Having a vacant home professionally staged is so important. Buyers cannot visualize size and scale so furniture helps to give them a frame of reference.
