Sellers: Improve Sales with Home Staging
A beautiful, well-staged home sells much faster—and at a higher price—than the home next door. In today’s buyer’s market, it’s vital to have your home staged. Your potential buyers are looking for the best home their money can buy, a home where they can envision themselves and their belongings. You don’t have a second chance to make a good impression. You need to make your home stand out from the rest. In fact, recent studies show that homes will sell for 2 percent to 10 percent more when the home is staged.
As your agents, we will review your home with you and walk you through the staging process—it is part of our services! The goal is to emphasize the beautiful features and benefits of your home to gain an edge on your competition.
What is Home Staging?
Home staging includes rearranging furniture and décor with the intent of showcasing your home for sale. It could entail a simple clean and removal of the clutter we all acquire in day-to-day living. It could also be a financial investment of painting, landscaping and adding furniture and plants so potential buyers can better visualize living in the home.
Benefits of Home Staging
Staging your home gives you a competitive advantage over other homes on the market. Once your house goes on the market, it becomes a product. Just like any other product, it has features and benefits, pluses and minuses. To gain an edge, it must be priced right and look better than the competition. Home staging works by emphasizing those positive features and benefits, and letting potential buyers see themselves living in the home. The art of staging is creating a space that reflects a lifestyle that people want to have. You want your prospective buyer to fall in love with your home and be able to picture themselves living in it!
