You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression!
Don’t undersell your most valuable asset!
Homes that look great sell faster at higher prices. Why? Because research shows that visitors form first impressions of a space within 90 seconds. In fact, as much as 60 percent of an impression can be based on color alone.
With 95% of buyers shopping on the Internet, the pictures they see there are the first, and sometimes the only, chance for sellers to make a good impression. Unappealing photos put homes at a serious competitive disadvantage and lead to the elimination of these properties from buyers’ viewing lists.
In every market, all properties benefit from some degree of home staging. However, in a down market, when supply exceeds demand, not only is there more competition, there is more “staged” competition. If you don’t stage your property, you’re giving your competition the advantage.
If you are selling your home, professional home staging is the best short-term investment you can make!
How much will home staging cost?
Home Staging is an investment, not an expense.
Just consider the financial return of a 12-month CD with today’s interest rates. A short-term investment in your most valuable asset is the wiser financial decision. Statistics show that home staged properties sell faster and for more money than comps that are not staged. So, owners do not save money by not home staging, in fact they lose money by not getting the best return on their asset and by incurring additional carrying costs for the extra time on the market. And the investment in home staging is almost always less than the first price reduction and in many cases, less than one month’s carrying costs.
So the definitive question to ask is, “How much will it cost me if I don’t stage?“
