Statistics say a home that is properly staged prior to listing it in the MLS can sell 79% faster than a home staged after listing it. What is home staging? It is the preparation of your home so that the potential buyer can mentally move in. Most buyers size up your home within minutes of walking through your door making the first impression your home conveys one of the most important things about it. Preparing your home prior to listing it and also to showing it can make your home more appealing to buyers and also create more interest. The more buyers that are interested, the more likely you are to get a higher price for your home.
What are the advantages to Home Staging:
- Higher Selling Price – If your home is more appealing, then potential buyers are willing to pay top dollar for it
- Your house will Sell Faster – Homes that are visually appealing tend to attract more attention. The more people looking at your house, the more likely it is to sell quickly
- Your Online Photos will stand out – Having attractive photos online will bring more potential buyers TO your home & create more showing appointments.
- You will make your money back – A NAR Survey says that the average staging investment is 1 – 3% of the homes asking price, which generates a ROI of 8 to 10%
