Staging your home before listing will give you an advantage over staging later. Regardless of when you stage, there is a reduction in the number of days on the market, compared to the same un-staged home.
If your home has been on the market for more than a month, why not try Professional Home Staging before you decide to reduce your price
Do you have to take everything out of our house?
No, we will work with your existing furniture and accessories whenever possible. First we de-clutter, then we rearrange furniture to maximize space and showcase your home’s best features. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that will appeal to the most buyers.
How much will I invest in Home Staging?
Keep in mind that Professional Home Staging is an effective marketing tool! By reducing the amount of time your home is on the market, staging can protect you from price reductions (which usually occur in increments of $10,000). The condition of your home and any upgrades required will influence the staging investment costs.
As the homeowner, can I help with staging?
Absolutely! We includes several steps that homeowners can be involved in. For example, during the initial consultation, we will identify any items (both furniture and accessories) that will be packed and stored. Many clients prefer to pack their own belongings. And if you’re so inclined, you can take care of any painting and repairs that is required.
Why can’t you just clean and de-clutter your own home or stage it yourself?
Home staging extends beyond cleaning and de-cluttering. This involves reorganizing and arranging furniture, adding appropriate accessories and art can help potential buyers fall in love with your home and imagine themselves living there.
Objectivity is the key. If you are able to see your home through the eyes of a highly critical buyer, and ignore any emotional involvement with your home and its contents, you can certainly do it yourself.
Professional Home Stagers provide objective recommendations on how to best use what is there, as well as to determine whether anything else needs to be added. We understand the principles of designing a home to sell. Often, homeowners don’t have time to deal with the small details in the way a Professional Home Stager will.
Should you spend money on a house you’re selling?
When you invest in a service that will help your home sell quickly and for top dollar, you can increase your initial investment in using a Professional Home stager.
Does Home Staging boost the selling price of my home?
People tend to buy on emotion and then justify their decision with logic!
Only 10% of buyers are able to overlook empty rooms or cluttered, unattractive decor and see the potential beyond!
Professional Home Staging recreates the look of a Model Show Home, so buyers don’t have to use their imagination. They can feel at home immediately.
It’s critical to pay close attention to the smallest details when staging a home to sell. If your home looks fantastic and the buyer can immediately imagine living there, they are more likely to make an offer. If enough buyers are bidding on your home, the selling price goes up way past your asking price.
