  • Looks and Feels Like Home (the WOW factor):
    • In today’s market there is more competition than ever! Between the high demand market we live in, coupled with the increasing popularity of all the HGTV remodeling/DIY shows, your home needs to have the “wow factor” if you want to sell quickly and for top dollar.
    • “77% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home”

  • Click Appeal (your online presence):
    • People have 7 seconds, in person, to make a first impression (good or bad). You have only 2.6 seconds to make a first impression online.
    • Selling your home is no different. Buyers searching for their next home online decide in less than 3 seconds if they’re interested in your home or not. Home staging is a way to ensure you have a stand out online presence.
    • “95% of buyers are online first looking at photos of homes before they reach out to an agent”
    • “40% of buyers were more willing to walk through a home they saw online, if it was staged”

  • Buyers Overlook Flaws & Outdated Trends:
    • Don’t have those ever so popular white cabinets or gray walls? Is your home a little outdated? Or do you have some minor cosmetic items that need fixing?
    • Updating the above can be a big expense and time consuming. Using a professional home stager will help focus the buyer’s eyes elsewhere, saving you money and time in long run.
    • “Nearly 1/3 of buyers will overlook property faults when a home is professionally staged”

  • Less Time on the Market:
    • Time is Money! We all know how precious our time is these days. Investing in home staging will decrease your time on the market.
    • As the great Gary Keller – Chairman and CEO of Keller Williams Realty said himself “Price gets you interest…Staging gets you offers”
    • “Professionally staged homes spent 72% less time on the market than unstaged homes”

  • Increased Sale Price:
    • Money is Money! Let’s be honest who doesn’t want more money, right?
    • You can’t think of home staging as another cost, you have to think of it as an upfront investment that will provide more and higher offers.
    •   85% of staged homes sold for 6-25% more than unstaged homes
