Making the decision to sell your home means you’ll want to take the right steps to get it sold fast so you can move on to your new place. Staging a home is super critical in the sales process. Here are the top 10 reasons to stage a home when you want it to sell quickly.
1. Make more money
The National Association of Realtors states that those who invest 1-3% of the value of their home on staging, updates, and/or repairs can make or save 8-10% on the sale of their home.
2. Sell faster
A staged home sells 82% faster than an unstaged home. This means fewer headaches and worry for you and a higher sales price.
3. Avoid a price drop
Staging a home pays! It has been shown that the average return on investment for staging can be up to 399%. The money you pay for staging is an investment – not an expense. On average, staging cost less than your first price drop.
4. Stand out online
More than 95% of buyers go online first to determine which homes they want to see in person. Professional MLS photos of your staged home will attract more buyer traffic and help you get an offer FAST.
5. Stay in the driver’s seat
Having listing photos taken of a professionally staged home means you’ll put your best foot forward when your property officially hits the market. When prospective buyers see your photos, they’ll be impressed enough to come take a look… and buy!
6. Market your home more effectively
Once you’ve staged your home, it’s no longer YOUR home. It’s now a product you are selling. The “you” is removed from the home and it is staged directly to the predetermined target market for your home which means you’ll get an offer, FASTER!
7. Show a move-in ready home
Today’s buyers are busy. Staging a home means removing clutter, adding curb appeal and spiffing up your home’s interior prior to listing will show buyers your home is move-in ready and will help you overcome challenges to getting an offer.
8. Enjoy an easier moving process
Ok, so maybe you won’t enjoy moving. No one likes to move. But by decluttering your home before you sell it, you’ll be able to get to your new home faster.
9. Emotionally detach. Get to your new home faster
Removing all your personal items will help start the process of emotionally detaching from your home, so you can let go and focus on your new home.
10. You Can Relax
Have peace of mind that your home is in the hands of home staging professionals, and a targeted design plan has been implemented in your home to attract the right buyer and the right price.
