Home Staging Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of the questions you may be asking yourself when deciding to stage your home. We are here to help you throughout the process and would be happy to provide move information on these or any other questions you may have.
Why do I need a Stager?
Homes that have not been staged take 67% more time to sell than homes that have been staged. Staged homes sell for more money than non-staged homes. Buyers are looking for move-in-ready homes. Staged homes look better in MLS pictures and therefore draw a larger group of potential buyers to view the home.
Can’t buyers use their imagination?
Some buyers can’t or don’t’ want to use their imagination. Some people find it difficult to see beyond what’s in front of their face and see the potential that a property has to offer. Staging shows them exactly what the benefits are of a property and allows them to develop an emotional connection.
I love my décor, why change it?
The way you have decorated your home works well for the way you live. However, this may not work for selling your home. Staging takes away the personal elements of the home’s décor and allows the buyers to see their belongings in the space and really see themselves living there.
Can’t I do it myself?
You have an emotional, vested interest in your home and your belongings. A professional home stager can walk through your property and quickly make suggestions that are completely objective and that will give the best return on investment.
How much does it cost?
Prices vary depending on the size of the property and how much needs to be done. Home owners see an average return on their investment of 299% as a result of proper staging.
When should I stage my house?
Ideally, you should stage your house prior to listing. Studies have shown that homes staged before listing, sell even faster than homes staged after listing.
It is already on the market, is it too late?
It is definitely not too late. You can stage at any point during the selling process.
What if I am already using a real estate agent?
Great! You can speak to your real estate agent about home staging and we will be more than happy to work with your agent to ensure that you get the maximum money for you house.
