What is Home Staging?
Home or Property Staging is the process of preparing a home for sale – regardless of location or price – so that the buyer can emotionally move in.
An Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) uses proven methodologies and professional guidelines to prepare homes for sale.
Home Staging has proven to help sell homes up to 50% faster and for an average of 5-20% more than the competition.
Realtors will have great confidence in showing your home to potential buyers because they know our home stagers will make it Show Ready!
Your property will show better than the competition on the virtual tours (96% of potential buyers view potential properties via the internet FIRST) and in marketing materials.
By cleaning, de-cluttering, editing, balancing and coordinating specific rooms, your house becomes a focus for a broader target buyer, increasing the likelihood of multiple offers.
The RESULT? Selling your home for TOP DOLLAR in the shortest amount of time possible!
Reasons for Staging your home before you put it on the market:
Our accredited home stagers know there are many reasons to Stage, and can discuss the topics listed below to share experiences and ideas.
* Sell Home for More Money
U.S. Housing and Urban Development reports that Staged homes sell for an average of 17% higher than homes not staged.*A Property Will Sell Faster MSNBC reported that homes listed for sale without Staging spent at least an average of 4.5 months on the market, while at the same time homes Staged before listing spent less than 1.5 months on the market.*Staging, Doesn’t Really Cost A Dime In a recent HomeGain Survey of over 2000 Realtors, it was discovered that sellers who Staged their home recovered at least 200% of the cost when it sold.
*Most Homeowners Can’t See Their House Objectively or use proven Staging techniques.
An Accredited Staging professional (ASP) can “package” a home effectively, or give a detailed, step by step “Staging Plan,” for the work to be done.
*HGTV recommends home staging
In the recent HGTV program called “The 25 biggest Real Estate mistakes” they rated “not Staging a home” as the #1 biggest mistake.
*Fewer than 10% of home buyers can see a home’s potential
That’s especially true of a vacant home, where Staging is critical! The benefits of a beautiful home should not be left up to a buyer who might not see the potential.
*The longer a home stays on the market the lower the selling price will be…
By bringing an Accredited Staging professional (ASP) to Stage your home for sale you are guaranteed a faster sale, at a higher price.
*The Profit Made is TAX FREE!
Sellers can take advantage of tax-free capital gains by getting added dollars in the selling price through a Staged home.*Selling a House “AS IS” Will Only Help Sell the competition. The number of homes for sale on the market shows the amount of competition in its sale, and buyers have an expectation when they walk through a door that is best met or surpassed by a properly Staged home.
*The expenses going towards Home Staging are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
Home staging cost varies. A staging project/job is around $300 to $1,500 for a furnished home, a staging consultation would run between $150 to $250 while a vacant property would run between $2,400 and $8,000. The wide gap on the vacant staging cost figures in the size of the home, what is needed and for how long.
