Staging creates additional perceived value.
Perception is reality and one of the biggest values with home staging is that buyers perceive the value of the property as higher. By showcasing the features and benefits of each space through thoughtful placement of furniture, art, and accessories, we control how the buyer sees and “feels” the home.
Their focus is drawn away from negative features, dated finishes or awkward spaces that are otherwise very noticeable in a vacant property.
Properties that are staged need fewer upgrades.
We often hear our investors tell us that they decided they didn’t need to rip out old tile, remodel a dated bathroom or upgrade features in the kitchen due to the power of staging. Depending on the price point of the property, staging can create such a dramatic visual change, buyers will either not notice or not care about costly updates.
Home staging will detract from any negatives and accentuate the positives. This can save thousands on the overall budget to prepare a property for the market.
Home Staging reduces time on market.
Even in a strong market, where properties sell quickly, home staging reduces the amount of time on market, statistically as much as 72%. This is important, not only because of the carrying costs of a property including utilities and mortgage payments, but also because one of the first questions many buyers ask when they are interested in making an offer, is, “How long has this house been on the market?” This is their way of determining what the market has to say about the value of a property. The fewer the days on the market, the higher they may be willing to offer.
Realtors love to show and sell staged properties!
At Staged To Sell, we love to hear Realtors tell us that they recognize our photos on the MLS. They want to show our staged properties because they know their buyers will love them and write offers.
As a professional home stager, our job is to create an identity for each space, that makes sense for the most likely home buyer. Our designs are targeted to appeal to the widest audience of buyers. Each room should provide an opportunity to touch the buyer emotionally, letting them know that this is the perfect house for them to choose as their own.
