Great Blog by Kathy Streib about the importance of Staging in this changing Real Estate Market. Staging helps Sellers maximize their equity! Buyers will always pay more for a well maintained home!
Staging FAQ’s- Boca Raton-If Houses are Selling, Tell Me Why I Still Need to Stage My House.
As a Home Stager I’ve been getting asked this question lately by Sellers and some
Realtors. The media and other information outlets are talking about the rebound of the housing market. “Buyers need to act now” “Is it too late already?”
So the “frenzy” (and yes they’re using that word again) has some Sellers thinking as they did pre-2008.... just put the “For Sale” sign up and sit back.
So, is it necessary to stage your house in this market?
Remember... Condition is still part of the Top Three.... Price, Location and Condition.
It’s a common misconception that staging is just about furniture and things and moving them around but it’s more than that.
Staging is helping you transform your house into the property worthy of the price you hope to obtain.
So, why is condition and appearance still important?
1. Buyers are still concerned about the economy. A house that requires little “after purchase” investments, such as new carpeting, repairs, updates etc, will stand out.
2. Like any investment or purchase, buyers still want to see the value in their purchase. You’ve heard it and said it “I’m not paying that much for THIS!” Seeing an updated kitchen ; a move-in ready home; or fresh paint and flooring adds value in the buyer’s eyes.
3. Buying a house isn’t like buying a dress and returning it if you don’t like it. The only time you can “try it on” is when you see it. Staging and preparing a home for sale is a way of allowing the buyer to see the possibilities of your home.... allowing them to see themselves in their lifestyle there. This is how a buyer can “try on” your home.
If you plan on selling your home in Boca Raton, keep these 3 things in mind... Price, Location AND Condition!
