1. Do I need to stage my home if it’s already decorated?
Yes! Unlike decorating, Staging does not personalize a space, it does just the opposite – Staging "de-personalizes."
Home Staging is detailing, de-cluttering, de-personalizing and preparing a seller's home to give it a model home appearance so that the potential buyer can "see" themselves living in the home.
Staging will make your home feel updated, warm and inviting.
2. Why should I hire a professional Stager®?
Objectivity is key when staging a home. Your home is very personal; therefore being objective is almost impossible when you have an emotional connection to your property. Home Staging is professionally preparing your home for sale, so that it appeals to the greatest number of buyers, and generates the highest price in the least amount of time on market. In today's market conditions, Staging® sells homes!
According to the 2019 StagedHomes.com Statistics Report, it shows that 88% of staged homes spend less time on the market. Additionally, they indicate professionally staged homes sell for more money than non-staged homes.
Internet home sites have changed the way buyers select which homes to visit.
Over 95% of buyers are previewing homes on the Internet. Professional photos taken after Staging lead to more interest, more requests for showings, and higher levels of confidence that the home is “move-in-ready”!
3. Is staging expensive?
Staging is an investment which will help your home sell faster – eliminating months of carrying costs. It can also help to bring top dollar for your home! When you consider the first price reduction compared to the cost of staging – you can’t afford not to stage!
When staging an occupied home, we do our best to use what you already have, making staging even more cost- effective.
For vacant homes, statistics show that very few home buyers can visualize the potential of a home without furnishings. The National Association of Realtors 2019 Profile of Home Staging reports that over 96% of Buyer’s Agents say Home Staging® has a positive effect on how buyers view homes.
Studies also show that the longer your home stays on the market, the lower your selling price will be. Housing prices can decline 1% every month the home is on the market.
An investment in Staging is ALWAYS less than the cost of a price reduction.
