Why Home Staging?


   General Home Staging Facts:


  • buyers have high expectations and know what they want
  • 90% search online so property must look its best in photos to motivate buyers to see it in person
  • sellers decorate geared to their personal needs and taste; therefore limiting the buying pool
  • staging is removing that personal taste so the property appeals to the highest range of potential buyers; allowing them to imagine their belongings there
  • 86% of buyers want a home that is turnkey and ready to move right into
  • 79% of buyers want homes with updated finishes
  • buyers writing offers on homes needing work, are looking for a deal and it will reflect in their price offers
  • sellers who update their home in advance generate more traffic visiting their home and receive higher price offers and a larger return on their money
  • statistics prove home staging will actually cost less than the seller’s first price reduction
  • when walking through a house, buyers mentally calculate (and overly inflate by 20-30%) the cost of making changes/repairs themselves; and then deduct if from their price offers
  • lower offers mean negotiations begin at a lower price level


    General Suggestions:


  • first impressions are very important because buyers make up their mind about a home in the first 10 seconds after entering so your front door area as well as your foyer/entry must look it's best
  • update, update, update….buyer’s want a home that is turnkey (but have us make selections)
  • when your house is being shown, make sure all lights are on, all window coverings are wide open letting as much light into each room as possible, making them look larger and spacious
  • remove all photographs, religious items and as many taste specific items as possible
  • remove all clutter and make sure all rooms and closets are neat and orderly
  • replace burned out light bulbs, remove carpet revealing hardwoods, shampoo or replace old carpet
  • make sure entire house, especially all windows, kitchens, bathrooms and lights are scrubbed sparkling clean


    What Helps Homes Sell Faster and for More Money:


  • updated kitchens and baths with new cabinetry, counter tops, appliances, fixtures and tile backsplashes
  • updated hardwood floors, tile floors, lighting, exterior and interior finishes
  • updated fireplaces, large windows and great grounds and property
  • master bedroom retreats with ensuite baths (with separate shower and platform tubs)
  • well kept homes (if they see something that needs repair, they wonder what they can't see!)


Staging Vacant Homes



Furnished homes look better in the MRIS photos, attracting more buyers and selling 78% faster than vacant homes. They also make rooms look larger and create a space allowing the buyers to picture themselves living there rather than imagining what it could be.


Track records prove that 82% of buyers can't imagine what size furniture can fit into an empty space and actually need to see furnished rooms to understand, as well as be shown the purpose of each room.
