The Importance of Staging
With sellers competing at unprecedented levels, boosting the chances of getting a home sold quickly can be crucial. Many sellers turn to home staging to gain an edge on the competition. Home staging is more than just preparing a home for sale, it’s about marketing your home to the masses. According to the National Association of Realtors, staged homes sell for about six percent more, on average, than those not staged. When a home stays on the market, the price goes down. Staged homes sell faster, which means they’re less likely to be subjected to a reduction in price.
Reasons to Stage
- Make More Money
According to the NAR an average staging investment is between 1 & 3% of the home's asking price, which can generate a return of 8 - 10%!
- Sell Faster
A NAR survey found that the longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops. Homes that sold in the first 4 weeks averaged 1% more than the list price; 4 to 12 weeks averaged 5% less and 13 to 24 weeks averaged 6.4% less than list price.
Return on Investment…
In a 2009 Home Gain Survey of over 2000 Realtors, it was discovered that home staging typically provides a 586% return on investment!
- Most Home
Sellers Cannot View Their House Objectively…
If you can’t see objectively, you can’t “package” effectively. A staging
professional can get your home into its most advantageous condition for showing.
- Your Online Photos Will Stand-Out Among the Competition…
According to NAR over 90% of buyers search for homes online before deciding to visit. Give buyers a reason to drive to your home by having multiple photos of beautifully staged rooms.
- Only 10% of Buyers
Can Visualize the Potential of a Home...
That’s why staging a home is critical! You don’t want the advantages of your home overlooked and left up to the buyer’s imagination.
- The Money You Spend on Staging May Be
Take advantage of a possible tax deduction for spending on staging services to improve and sell your home! (*States may vary, so please consult your accountant).
- Leaving Your House in “AS IS” Condition Will Only Help Sell the Competition...
Right now the number of homes for sale on the market is at a record high. Competition is stiff and buyers have very high expectations, as well as many choices. Successful agents know that the key to competing is professional staging because it creates compelling online presentations, drives buyer traffic to the home, and turns prospects into buyers. *Results are not guaranteed and may vary between sales.
