The million dollar question everyone, especially realtors want to know is, “Why Stage?” Now, let us break this concept down with some statistics: There is never a second chance to make a first impression. Buyers will typically only take 15 seconds to make a decision regarding your property. Why leave that first impression to chance? Home staging can add up to 20% of your home’s value. RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) studied 174 homes previously on the market on average 156 days before the homeowners gave up trying to sell on their own and called in a professional home stager. Those same homes were staged, re-listed and sold in an average of 42 days after staging. This is 73% less time on the market! So, what is Property Staging? A professionally staged home will essentially bring out the best in a home. It will emphasize the space, functionality and features of a house so that prospective buyers can envision themselves living there. Staging adds to your home by making your home feel larger, brighter, cleaner, and much more. We generally stage our homes using a neutral color palette and design to appeal to a broad range of buyers. Home staging can essentially erase the negatives in a home, or distract prospective buyers from any imperfections a home may have. Our design team pulls together furniture, accessories, plants, artwork, rugs, and lighting to transform any property into one that prospective buyers fall in love with. Now do we understand the benefits?
