Top 10 Reasons to Stage Your Home

  1. Less Time on Market – Statistics illustrate that staged properties spend 89% less time on the market than un staged properties and 91% of these properties sell in less than one month.
  2. Generate More Interest & Viewings – When buyers begin looking for a new home, more than 80%% start their search on the internet. Photos of staged properties shine among the competition resulting in more interest and increased viewings.
  3. Sell for Higher Listing Prices – Staged properties can sell for 5-25%% higher than the listing price.
  4. Get a Head Start on Packing – When staging your home, some of your belongings are often packed and stored away during the time your property is on the market. This is the perfect chance to sort through your belongings and donate unwanted items and cut back on what you move into your new home.
  5. First Impressions Count – Potential buyers know within 15 seconds of entering a property whether they like it or not. Home staging can captivate their attention and make the first impression memorable.
  6. Trigger their Imagination – Effectively staged properties allow the potential buyers to imagine themselves living in the home, triggering their imagination to picture their own belongings in the space.
  7. Show the Love – Staged homes tell potential buyers that your home is well cared for and maintained.
  8. Staged Kitchens Sell Houses – Kitchens are high on the list of priorities for buyers so staging this part of your home is critical. De cluttering countertops is step 1 in effectively staging a kitchen.
  9. Details, details – Little touches throughout the home go a long way. Potted plants, fresh flowers and soft background music can really set the mood during viewings.
  10. Be on the Cutting Edge! Home staging is quickly becoming an industry standard when selling properties. Buyers have come to expect that the homes they view show very well, why not take the lead and ensure your property shines and shows well from the beginning?
