Is hiring a stager right for you? If you have question about the benefits of hiring a home stager or what a professional stagers services are worth - I would like to strongly encourage you to call upon a local stager and ask them and then pick up a copy of this month's Home Magazine.
On page 78 there is a great article entitled "Home Stager" that is well written and informative.
Siting statistics, the article states "Staged homes typically fetch 7 percent more than comparable unstaged properties." In today's market, this seems like a valuable reason to hire a professional.
Want another reason? The article goes one to say that "it's virtually impossible for the average buyer to visualize the potential of a home." IMPOSSIBLE!
Is it worth the investment? Quoting the author, "Statistics indicate YES" (emphasis mine).
If you're a home seller, investor or Realtor this article is worth your time to read it.
If you're a home stager, think about including this article in your marketing.
Happy Valuable Staging!
