Reasons why you SHOULD have your home staged

  1. You will make more money – According to National Association of Realtors, the average investment for staging a home is 1 to 3 percent of the home’s asking price, which can generate a return of 8 to 10 percent, which is money in your pocket!
  2. Your house will sell faster which equals more money and less stress – Another NAR survey found that the longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops.
  3. The cost of staging doesn’t cost a dime – Typically there is a return on your investment=free money!
  4. Most home sellers cannot view their house objectively – Having a professional stager stage your home is to your advantage as they can view your home with “new eyes” and pick out potential issues before potential buyers view your home.
  5. Your online photos will stand out among the competition – Most potential buyers view properties online even before contacting a realtor, so why not have your home looking its best right from the start!
  6. Only 10% of homebuyers can visualize the potential of a home – Don’t leave potential issues up to a buyer’s imagination, take away any excuses right away!
  7. The longer a home is on the market, the lower the price will be – Another NAR survey revealed that homes sold after 4 weeks on the market typically sold for 6% less than ones within the first 4 weeks!
  8. Leaving your home in “As is” condition will only help sell your competition – Again, don’t let your competition look better than you – sell yours first!

Realtors understand the effectiveness of home staging and will encourage their clients to have their home show to potential buyers looking its best.  This will drive traffic to the home and turn prospects into buyers quicker and will make their clients top dollar!
