Is Home Staging Right for You?
If your home is on the market, you’ve probably considered every possibly strategy by which you can sell your house quickly and for a great price. Whether that means hiring a great broker, passing out pamphlets to everyone who will take one, or taking out ads in the local newspaper—you’re willing to consider anything that will expedite the process and ensure that you receive a fair price for your home.
What many sellers don’t realize is that there is a proven strategy which requires an investment of 1% – 3% of the home’s asking price… and generates an 8% – 10% return!
That strategy is home staging. Essentially, home staging is the art of temporarily decorating a property with the intent to sell in today’s market. It includes interior design, some decorating, marketing, real estate, and set design all rolled together. The bottom line is that home staging increases the appeal of your home to prospective buyers—allowing you to sell more quickly and for higher prices.
Is home staging right for you? The questions below will help you make that determination—to learn more, feel free to contact us today!
1) Are you in a hurry to sell your home?
For many sellers, time is of the essence. Whether you are moving across the country or simply across town, many families and individuals need the proceeds from their home sale in order to get situated in their new home. Others have specific deadlines, such as the beginning of a new school year or semester, by which they must have their home sold. If you’re in a similar situation, home staging is the solution. By creating an irresistible appeal, home staging is proven to dramatically speed the process of selling. If you’re in a rush, home staging will help you meet your deadline!
2) Would you like your home to captivate prospective buyers as soon as they walk in the door?
First impressions are everything when it comes to real estate—and professional home staging experts will ensure that your home looks its best. Starting with the driveway and the front yard, home staging professionals maximize “curbside appeal”—motivating prospective buyers to get out of their car and walk to your front door. Once they walk in, the impression that our staging experts create will be irresistible—and chances are, you’ll be getting an offer before long!
3) Are you concerned about the price you receive for your home?
For many sellers, the primary concern in this depressed housing market is simply receiving fair value for their home. It’s a buyer’s market—which means that there are plenty of houses available for buyers to pick from, and as a result, sellers try to close the deal by dropping their price. You don’t have to go that route, however—because home staging is shown to increase sales prices by 8-10%. Considering that the cost of staging is typically 1-3% of the asking price, staging is a no-brainer if maximizing your sale price is important!
