1. You will sell your home more quickly.
The bottom line is that you are more likely to make a quick sale on your house if you’ve invested in professional home staging. A professional stager takes the time to make your home appear larger, brighter, and more appealing. On average, homes that are well staged will sell almost 87% faster than homes that are not. In fact, one recent study found that many homes that had previously been sitting on the market for months sold in less than a month after being professionally staged. Clearly, staging will keep you from sitting with an unsold home while continuing to pay for mortgage and maintenance costs!
2. You will sell your home for more money.
By presenting your home in its best light, staging increases its perceived value to prospective buyers. Staging is the perfect way to increase the amount you can sell your house for without actually having to renovate. Statistics show that homeowners who spent even $500 on home staging ended up seeing an almost 350% return on their investment in the final selling price! Only about 10% of buyers can see the true value of the home if there is clutter or dirt – and seeing less potential can obviously drive down how much they’re willing to pay. Clearly, prospective financial benefit is well worth the cost of home staging.
3. Buyers will connect more to your home.
95% of people tend to make home-buying decisions based on emotions, particularly the ones they experience when first walking into a home. In fact, most buyers form an opinion about a home within 7-10 seconds of walking in the door. Without a great first impression, you’re not going to make the sale. A professional stager knows exactly how to arrange your home so that potential buyers are able to picture themselves living there. Though you may have your home decorated in a way that suits you perfectly, a professional stager knows how to arrange your home in a way that will appeal to everyone else.
It's clear that, with help from staging experts, you can greatly improve the home selling process. If you're looking for a great stager in Nashville, head to SellAndStage.com. Happy staging!
