IS HOME STAGING WORTH IT?
Home Staging is considered one of the top most important phases of home selling
According to the National Association of Realtors, for every $100 invested in staging, the potential return is $400 . Compare that to the average sale price, which is a reduction of 10-20% from asking. So an average home with a $400,000 asking price will be reduced by $40,000 to $80,000.
Staging can save you from a costly price reduction. A staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home, and 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less. That is statistically 87% faster than non-staged homes.”
FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE EVERYTHING
It takes an average of 5 seconds to make a lasting impression
First impressions are everything. An unfavorable first impression to a potential buyer could cost you a top dollar sale. Home staging is considered a marketing technique that turns the home into something that will appeal to the greatest potential buyers so it will sell quickly.
HOME STAGING HELPS HOME BUYERS VISUALIZE THE SPACE
90% of Buyers Find Home Staging Beneficial
“One of the challenges of trying to sell a vacant home is that buyers can often have a hard time visualizing themselves living there.” When rooms are unfurnished they actually feel smaller than they are; so a buyer might be unsure how to position furniture or if their current furniture will fit. Buyers also notice more flaws when a home is vacant and might incorrectly assume a home needs a lot of work when it really needs minimal cosmetic updating. Finally, a vacant property can give buyers the impression a seller is desperate, which could result in lower offers.
