Does home staging really affect the sale of your home?
Sellers come to us because they want to sell their home for the greatest amount of money, in the shortest amount of time, with the least inconvenience. To accomplish this, we advise clients to shift their mindset from being homeowners to home sellers. Part of selling a home is ensuring it is displayed in the best possible light, which is where staging plays a critical role. Staging your home offers four benefits – homes sell faster, for more money, generate a good return on investment and create a competitive advantage against similar listings.
Staged homes typically draw a significant return on investment. For every dollar invested, we see a five or ten dollar return. According to National Association of REALTORs statistics and independent research parties, a staged home is going to sell about 73% faster than a non-staged home. The faster your home sells, the less you pay in costs such as mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance, utilities and all the other expenses involved with a home sitting on the market.
Finally, when you stage your home, your marketing and overall presentation will really stand out. When you hire a Realtor who pays for professional photography on a home that’s staged, buyers are significantly more likely to schedule a tour over homes that are not.
If you have any questions about staging your home or you’re thinking about selling and need a good resource, please feel free to give us a call. We’d love to work with you.
