When Should I Hire a Home Staging Expert in Syracuse?

Home Stager with Seneca Home Staging

There is no one definitive answer to the question "When should I hire a Home Staging expert in Syracuse?", but here are some things to consider:


Before Your Home is Listed

Ideally, you will gain the most benefit by hiring a Home Staging expert before your Syracuse area home goes on the market. A one or two hour consultation will give you a clear plan on what will give you the biggest return on your investment. When the house is listed for sale, it will be ready to show. Instead of anxiously waiting for buyers' negative feedback, you can rest assured that the house's best features are highlighted and will appeal to buyers' needs and wants. 

Before You Agree to a Price Reduction

If your home hasn't sold in a certain amount of time, the listing agent may talk to you about a price reduction. Perhaps the home is priced too high, but before you drop your asking price by thousands of dollars, consider hiring a Home Staging expert. Statistics show that staged homes sell for 6-10% more than unstaged homes. So, instead of losing thousands of dollars by reducing your price, you can actually make thousands by having the house staged. 

Before Re-listing

There are a multitude of reasons why a house doesn't sell: economic climate, location, and asking price are just a few. A Realtor will be able to guide you in your decision to re-list, but they may be hesitant or unable to tell you why your home does not appeal to the buyers who are out there looking. A Home Staging expert will evaluate the home's appeal and can give buyers what they are looking for.

After Moving into a New Home

Home Staging experts aren't just good at staging homes to sell: they can also help you create an environment in your new home that is comfortable, beautiful, and personal to you. Using a Home Stager's redesign service can help you see how your furnishings will fit into and enhance your new space, and assist you in turning your new home into the dream home that you envisioned.


It's easy to see how a Home Staging expert can benefit you at any time before, during, and after your home is sold. It's also easy to hire one: just pick up the phone and call! To find a Home Staging expert near you, click here.

What a great blog post, I really enjoyed it, I  am going to share it with my team this morning. It is amazing how you can learn things from other markets. We all think sometimes that we sell in a fish bowl. Great job, keep them coming.!!!

Low cost rural properties don't have room for the added professional. On a $23,500 home, making the place clean, priced low low is all you need!

Janelle - You make some great points here.  I definitely agree that the best time to stage is before the house goes on the market.  Going in with a strong listing that's priced right and presented beautifully will result in a quick sale.

Janielle  I love it - it tells me it is never too late to consider staging even though you may not have had it done before listing which is the ideal time
