Staged Homes to Sell
Benefits of Staging
You only get one chance at making a first impression; the majority of home buyers today start their search online. Home buyers tend to struggle with picturing how rooms can work without some sort of visual.
Staging creates a clean and inviting space to excite buyers by highlighting your homes best assets. Your home will also benefit when pictures are taken for marketing purposes.
There is no doubt; a staged home entices more home buyers when viewed online or in print. Professionally staged homes also spend less time on the market and generally sell for more money.
According to a study conducted by ASP Home Staging, 95% of staged homes sell on average in 11 days or less and sell for 17% more than un-staged competition on the market.
Staging creates a competitive advantage when selling your home. Staged homes close at a higher price; buyers are willing to submit higher offers when they are attracted by a home’s best features. When weighing the cost for staging against the additional mortgage payments, and possible price reductions if your home lingers on the market, staging really is a no brainer.
Less time on the market equals more money in your pocket. Stats from the National Association of Realtors indicate that on average sellers spend 1 to 3 percent of the home’s asking price on staging and typically generate an 8 to 10 percent return on investment.
