Why Staging A Home Sells!
Find current homes for sale in the Courseside subdivision of Lakewood Colorado.
If you are looking for tips and tricks on how to stage a home, this is not the blog to read. However, this blog is about the positive effect of staging a home to sell. I have been hosting an open house on the weekends for the Courseside development in Lakewood since December 2013. During the first three weeks of the open house, there was quite a bit of traffic with an average of around 20 visitors per day. However, the response was underwhelming to say the least. The home had not been staged and it was not a warm or inviting feeling for visitors. Although the home being newly built includes granite counter-tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, brushed steel lighting fixtures, brushed steel cabinet hardware, and engineered hard wood floors and cabinets, it was not selling and had no serious offers. Once the home was staged, we had an offer within one week and sold six of the twelve lots within two weeks. The response to buy was so strong after the model home was staged, the builders raised the base price of the remaining home lots by $10,000 in an effort to not sell out so quickly.
Staging a home:
- Provides a visual for the potential home owner
- Invites a visitor in and encourages conversation
- Makes for a warm and home like feeling
- Helps to sell the home
The Courseside development is one of the last new builds in the Twin Creek Neighborhood. With twelve lots being built by Newport Homes, a former Seattle based company with over 30 years of experience in building homes. The new development includes a Ranch style home with a basement and a Two Story floor plan with a basement. This new development is located next to the Lakewood Golf Course and Country Club, which offers a few select homes with some excellent views of the golf course and mountains.
