Real Estate Staging is the process of preparing a home for sale. Staging is really about un-decorating and removing years of living, collecting & decorating so a buyer can visualize themselves living in the home. When a seller "lets go" of some of their own things, it then gives permission for the buyer to buy! There are many benefits of staging your home for sale. Here are the top 5 reasons.
1. Staging is always less than your first price reduction. In most cases a price reduction of a home is from $5,000 and up, depending on where you live and what the market conditions are. The cost of staging is considerably less.
2. Your property will appeal to more buyers if it has been staged. By neutralizing your home and removing personal items (family photos, religious items, etc), your home will appeal to more people and thus a greater chance of creating multiple offers.
3. Realtors will want to show your home! When realtors know your home has been staged, you will be on top of the “to show” list as there are no surprises and a greater chance their client will fall in love with your home.
4. Your home will have a "WOW" factor that other homes in the area do not have. It will create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
Helps reduce the stress regarding your upcoming move because you have already decluttered and packed away some boxes and disposed of items you no longer need.
