Why Stage A Home?
Home staging has become a popular way to increase a home's selling price and decrease the selling time.
Staging is effective because it emphasizes a property's strengths and minimizes its weak points.
The goal is to elicit an emotional response from the buyer. Why? Because buying real estate is emotional! We all want to fall in love with the home we end up buying.
There's a reason why builders and developers spend thousands of dollars to stage their homes. Staging often generates more money for a seller!
Staging also helps depersonalizes a space. You want a buyer to visualizing themselves living in your space.
Staging is one of the tools I use to maximize the selling price of client's listings. And as an aside, each time I've sold a property personally I make sure to include a staging budget when planning the sale.
As part of my service as a listing agent, I always contribute towards the cost of staging. Not all homes need to be staged, but the vast majority benefit from a consultation from a stager. If you are interested in learning more about this offering please reach out.
