Closing just a few more sales before the Alaska real estate market goes into hibernation would be a nice thing for the wallet. Staging does pay you back. A faster sale is golden in these times. Professionally staged homes clearly outsell unstaged homes in every market. What are you showing your buyers?
Whether you're a realtor or owner-seller, having your property professionally staged can still attract buyers to your offering, possibly saving you from a price reduction(s), or worst yet, not selling THIS SEASON. Not many can withstand such poor results. Can you afford NOT to stage? Can you afford a price reduction or two? Can you afford holding costs until spring when the market will, hopefully, pick up? Can you afford one less sale?
For owner-sellers, costs associated with staging are very minimal, almost seamless, easily recouped at closing, and are tax deductible. See IRS Publication 523.
My hubby and I recently sold our staged house 12 miles from Wasilla, outside the core area, and on oil heat. There were 2 offers in 3 weeks. It sold for more than our asking price. Could we afford NOT to stage? No way! Buyers liked what they saw. Will they like what you're showing? If not, call me right away. Let's attract buyers to your showcased home!
