Hot Topic: Is Home Staging Necessary?

There’s a reason why I offer my Sellers a Complimentary Home Staging Consultation. In my experience, if I put 2 very similar properties together and they are listed at the same price, the staged home usually sells for more, and faster. The fact remains- many Sellers aren’t sure if they should hire a home stager. Home staging is about showing a home in its best possible light. It can also help potential buyers imagine themselves in the space. Buyers like it to see what a room really looks like, without the Sellers' personal effects. 

In a Seller’s market, your home will probably sell- but what will it sell for? “The Real Estate Staging Association study revealed that 85 per cent of homes analyzed sold for five per cent to 25 per cent above listing price. It isn’t always black and white, as the final selling price can depend on a number of factors, including buyer demand, competition and the condition of the property. With all else being equal, a staged home is more likely to leave buyers with a better impression than one that hasn’t been staged, with the potential to fetch higher offers”*. Although there are upfront costs attached to professional home staging, you should be able to recoup those costs in your sale price. 

Are you ready to list? Let’s get a home stager in to talk to you today!
