As the real estate market continues to soar, so does the competition in selling your home. A professional home stager will showcase the best features of your home, giving it a competitive edge on the real estate market.
Statistics continue to demonstrate that home staging is a positive return on investment for listing homeowners. A Coldwell and Banker study found that staged homes sold 6.4% on average over the listing price based on 2772 homes across eight cities. A StagedHome.com survey reports that on average, a staged homes sells within 35 days of going on the market, whereas homes that were not staged took an average of 175 days to sell.
Still need some convincing? Here are my top reasons home staging is essential to selling your home:
- It allows potential buyers to imagine how the space can function for them, each room should have a defined purpose.
- Buyers do not want a home that requires a lot of work—and ultimately are willing to pay more for an updated space. In a competitive market, this can increase the selling price of your home.
- As prospective buyers are more often searching properties online, the pictures of your home should showcase it at its best—enticing more buyers to visit and place an offer!
Remember, the money you save investing in a home stager will save you the money from your homes' first price drop.
