6 Reasons To Stage Your Home Before You SellStaging your home

You’ve heard of home staging, seen it on T.V., maybe even had a friend try it when they sold their home. 

Maybe you haven’t really put too much thought into it, or maybe you’ve looked into it and thought it wasn’t for you or too expensive and you didn’t feel it was worth the cost and you could do it yourself. Staging a house can be costly; some staging companies charge anywhere from $200 - $2,000 depending on how much work is needed.

But is it worth it? Does it really make a difference? YES!! Here’s why:

Your Home Will Sell For A Higher Price
Studies show sellers who staged their home make 7% - 10% more than sellers who did not stage their homes.

Your Home Will Sell Faster
The Association of Property Scene Designers states that staged homes sell 43% FASTER than their unstaged competitors.

Your Home’s “Flaws” Can Be Overlooked
According to NAR, National Association of Realtors, almost a third of buyers will “overlook property faults when a home professionally staged”.

Buyers Can Visualize Themselves Living There
Removing personal knick-knacks and photos from your home before you sell it lets buyers feel like it could be their home.

Staging Makes The House Seem Larger
Removing clutter and rearranging the furniture in a way that maximizes the space gives the rooms in your home more function
and the appearance of larger rooms.

Not Staging Will Only HELP Your Competition
Staged homes give a great first impression and create a buzz as the “must see” listing in the area. You want to have a lot of      
people seeing your home as soon as it’s on the market.

Staging can be as simple as decluttering and rearranging furniture or as elaborate as removing all of your belongings and bringing in all new furniture from a staging company. Whichever route you go, your chances or getting a higher sale price on your home and selling it faster go up dramatically when you stage your home.
