Do you think it’s a good investment to stage our home before putting it on the market?
Home staging is one of the most important things a seller can do to improve their chances for a successful sale! Staging is just as important as is getting the price right when it comes to attracting the most buyers and driving in the best possible offer. The National Association of Realtors shares “Buyers want to easily envision themselves within a new home, and home staging is a way to showcase the property in its best light.”
Why is staging so important? The overwhelming majority of buyers start their home search online and surveys show that buyers who see photos of a staged property online are more willing to do a physical walkthrough of the property. 81% of buyer’s agents surveyed indicated that staging helps their clients visualize life in a home. A third say that staging boosts home value, particularly if the aesthetic fits the client’s tastes. And nearly one quarter of survey respondents say that staging may help buyers look past property faults.
Home staging is typically done by trained professionals specializing in readying homes for the best possible outcome when they hit the market. While Realtors can provide advice, a home stager’s expert eye can make a huge difference in the success of your sale. Sometimes stagers can work with your furnishings, and sometimes they bring in rented furnishings. Yes, it is an expense, but in my professional opinion, sometimes it takes money to make money, and home staging is an excellent investment to generate the best possible returns!
Don’t just list your home, get it the attention it deserves by making sure it looks its very best from the outset!
