Staging a home is when a professional decorates your home to properly display each room’s utility, maximize your homes charming qualities, and minimize any awkward aspects. Professional staging is putting your home’s best face forward and increasing the overall appeal.
Take a look at some of our 'Before & After' staging photos to see what we have done for our clients:
Staging makes your home feel more inviting to potential buyers; and the easier a potential buyer can picture themselves living in your home- the greater chance that you will get a high offer quickly!
The cost of staging might range from $400-$2000, depending on weather you have your design consultant work with your existing furniture and décor, or if you invest in new pieces.
But does this actually work to get your home sold faster, and for a higher price?
The answer, is yes!
“According to a recent Home Gain survey, 94% of homes staged by a professional stager sold in 29 days or less, compared to an average of 145 days for non-staged homes. Even more compelling is the finding that $724 invested in staging (the average cost)netted the seller $2,145 more in price – a 196% return on investment!” –MrWilliamsburg.com
Margaret Heidenry of Realtor.com states: “On average, staged homes sell 88% faster and for 20% more than nonstaged ones”
So…to stage or not to stage? There is no question…YES!
