1. You will make more Money
Home staging is proven to increase the value of your home. 67% of top agents say that home staging helps a seller fetch more money for their house at resale and over 50% say that staging increases a home’s value from anywhere between 1%-10% (via Home Light’s Top Agent Insights Survey).
2. Your House Will Sell Faster
The less amount of time your home is on the market, the closer you’ll be able to sell it for your asking price. A National Association of REALTORS® survey found that the longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops. Homes that sold in the first 4 weeks averaged 1% more than the list price; 4 to 12 weeks averaged 5% less; 13 to 24 weeks averaged 6.4% less; than list price; and 24 weeks averaged more than 10% less than list price. Don’t be in a position where you have to lower your price...have your house staged!
3. The Cost is Worth The Return
In a Home Gain Survey of over 2000 realtors, it was discovered that home staging typically provides a 399% return on investment! It’s our goal to make the staging process as easy as possible in order to provide a top-notch experience with minimum time investment for the client.
4. Most Sellers Cannot View Their Home Objectively
It’s not uncommon for sellers to take the staging process personally, but a neutral design is our ultimate goal. Although you love your design choices, your personal style might not appeal to a large audience of buyers (and that’s OK). Our team will view your home objectively and create a design that can translate across a variety of buyer demographics.
5. Your digital listing will stand-out
According to a National Association of REALTORS® profile of buyers, over 95% of buyers are searching for homes online first before deciding to visit. Add your home to the must-visit list with a selection of professional photographs of beautifully staged rooms. This will give you a competitive advantage against other comparable properties in your area.
6. Help homebuyers visualize the potential of your home
83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home (via National Association of REALTORS® Research Group). Make the buyer feel at home instead of a guest who’s touring your house. By removing personal touches and replacing them with neutral decor, we’ll help the buyer connect with the home on an emotional level. Our expert design team will also maximize the layout and size of each room to show the living space in its best light.
7. You will make a meaningful first impression
Buyers decide within eight seconds whether they’re interested in your home. Creating a meaningful first impression with top-notch curb appeal is a significant part of the home selling process.
8. You can take advantage of tax deductions
Take advantage of a possible tax-free capital gain by getting every dollar possible while getting a potential tax deduction for spending on staging services to improve and sell your home! Note: State policies may vary, so please consult your accountant on this matter.
9. Your home will be perceived as well-maintained
Buyers have very high expectations and lots of competition in the neighborhood to choose from. Successful agents know that professional staging is a key move in a competitive market because it creates compelling online presentations, drives buyer traffic to the home, and turns prospects into buyers by making an emotional connection.
10. You Can Relax
56% of home buyers say finding the right property is the most difficult step of the home buying process—even harder than getting approved for a mortgage and completing the paperwork (via National Association of REALTORS® Research Group). Staging your home paired with professional photography will allow you to put your best foot forward when appealing to buyers. You will have the satisfaction of knowing you have done everything possible to facilitate a quick sale of your most valuable asset. Our staging team will always treat your home and belongings with care while we set up and break down the stage.
