Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I get my home staged?
Home staging is an incredibly smart investment. In fact, utilizing a professional stager to maximize your home's strengths, and minimize any of its shortcomings, has an average return on investment of 169%. In addition, a staged home can bring in 10-20% more than the same home without staging. That's just simple math. Home staging is a proven method to sell your home faster and for more money.
Can't I just stage my own home?
Of course! There are wonderful resources online and in books. However, one of the many things you gain from working with a professional stager is a fresh set of eyes and extensive expertise. Sometimes, we can't see the flaws in our own home. A home stager helps to objectively evaluate your home.
Won't home buyers just use their imaginations?
Wouldn't it be wonderful if home buyers could instantly envision a home with their own style and furniture? In reality, that only happens for about 10% of home buyers. Simply put, the vast majority of buyers cannot visualize size, scale, or even a new paint color. Therefore, great homes that are not staged are passed over by potential buyers. That's why it is imperative to showcase your home in its best light with staging, and not depend on a buyer's imagination.
Is staging a smart investment?
The investment in staging is always less than a price reduction, which is at least 3% after a home has been on the market for a few months. On a $250,000 house, that's a reduction of $7,500. Regardless of market fluctuations, staging will give your home an edge over competing properties and help sellers avoid a potential price reduction. It's the important "packaging" that helps a home sell faster and for maximum profit. Now that's a smart investment!
