It’s true, staging to sell your home can present a few challenges, so why stage?
Staged homes sell up to 30% faster!
Staging often reduces the back and forth of price negotiations by potential buyers who chip away at the asking price.
Agents working with potential buyers recognize staged homes as properties ready to sell and are more likely to show your house over those in a comparable price range.
Enhancing your home by staging is a very smart investment. Staging can help you to eliminate clutter, maximize traffic patterns, optimize furniture arrangement, pre-pack nonessential items, sell your home quickly and get top dollar for it!
Who’s On Your Team?
Your stager is your product development team member, your realtor is your marketing team member, you and your family are the “home” team members. This means that all of us are working together to get your product, your home, to market and keep it a viable commodity until the house is sold!
Each team member has specific responsibilities that will result in a win for you, the home owner.
Stager’s contribution to the team- develop the product to its fullest potential. Show-off the architectural features of the home, enable a potential buyer to visualize themselves living there, minimize any negatives and point out all the positives.
