Why Staging Works
Don’t most of us love to watch the home makeover reality shows on TV?! There is something almost magical seeing before and after results taking place in under an hour, right before our eyes!From rental properties, to suburban family homes to lavish luxury mansions, nearly every type of real estate property benefits from Professional Home Staging. Home Staging, when done correctly, allows the Buyer to see the property in it’s best possible light. The only question to ask yourself about staging is “Do I want to maximize my property equity when it comes time to sell?” and “Would I like to sell my property in the shortest possible timeframe?” If your answers are ‘Yes’ then Home Staging is for you.
It is NOT Decorating
Professional staging works to provide the same kind of transformation, one on one, quickly and in your own home.Even more importantly, staging ISN’T interior decorating; it’s actually about making the spaces in your home as appealing as possible to the widest range of prospective buyers. Sometimes it’s more about removing and redesigning the furnishings you already have; sometimes it’s about adding things to enhance a room; often it’s a combination of all of our experience and talents to guarantee we bring out the very best in your property’s ‘showability’. Staging companies should offer far more than furniture rental services. They should be able to help you understand the most worthwhile investments to make in preparing for sale including: paint color evaluation, improved exterior appearance for maximum curb appeal, re-design of existing furnishings, artwork and accessories and a number of other influencing factors.
It’s a Proven Fact- You will net more money from the sale of your home if it is professionally staged.
And the investment in home staging is usually just a fraction of the total return you will realize from the increase in your equity proceeds.
Depending on your property’s needs, our home staging fee can actually be less than 1% of it’s sales price and yet the potential increase in that same sales price for a professionally staged home is 5-20%. Its also a fact that well-staged homes sell up to 82% faster than non-staged properties and appraise for higher sales prices.
