Why Should You Consider Staging Your Home

Studies show that homes that are staged sell faster and for top dollar. Staging helps to create an emotional attachment for buyers; so much so, that they can fall in love with your home. 

In today's virtual world, home buyers can tour many homes from the comfort of their own home as they are searching for their "dream home." For sellers, it is imperative to prepare your home to stand out and make a great first impression.

5 Reasons to Consider Staging Before You List Your Home For Sale:

1. To Positively Reach Buyers’ Emotions

83% of buyers surveyed say it's easier to visualize a staged property as their future home; 38% of buyers are more willing to physically check out a staged home that they have seen online; 23% of buyers might overlook other faults the property may have.

2. To Sell Faster

25% of homes considerably decreased their time on the market once the home was staged. It helps potential buyers to better visualize your home’s living space and its functionality; therefore, leading to a quicker sale.

3. To Sell For More Money

39% of homes that were staged prior to listing increased in dollar value between 1-10%. On a $600,000 home, the sale could be $6,000 to $60,000 more.

4. Sometimes Even a Little Can Make a Big Difference

You don't always need to stage your entire home. Concentrate on the areas that buyers consider to be most important. Start with the Kitchen, Living & Dining Room, Master Bedroom & Bath and work your way through your home.

5. Make it Easier for Buyers

35% of buyers (and more in a sellers’ market) think that the home buying process is difficult. Why not put your best foot forward and help potential buyers visualize it as their home.

Preparing your home for sale is hard work and at the same time it is the most important part about getting it sold in the shortest amount of time for the price you want.
