Home Staging - Why is it important?
Why Choose to Stage Your Home?
Home Staging is a great way to set your home apart from others that are considered competing listings. Setting the tone of your home that you are ready to move-on, making your home a house, helps you get a jump-start on the moving process and also gives any potential buyer a clear message that you are ready to sell! Staging is not decorating. Staging allows a home owner to market the floor and storage spaces. Granted, tasteful decor is nice but its more important to display the space your home has to offer. Afterall, the purchaser is purchasing your house and are going to make it their home!
Let me tell you how I work...
If you have your home listed with a Realtor, I would like to team with you and your agent. Provide me with the name of your agent and his or her contact information and we'll begin putting a Home Staging plan in place! If you do not have your home listed with a Realtor, you may consult with me as a staging professional and we'll get your home prepared for its best exposure to its new owner!
What is the cost to have my home staged?
As the creator of Staged Homes, Barb Schwarz, says, "Your investment in ASP Home Staging will always be less that your first Price Reduction."
Costs for Home Staging vary by job, size of the home and services that I provide as your Home Staging Professional. Your home does not have to be going on the market or currently on the market for me to help you. I love the opportunity to work with those homeowners who are desiring a "home makeover" by de-cluttering and transitioning the look of any and all rooms of their homes!
Staged homes sell faster and closer to list price!
Home Staging is important in any real estate market and should be more important to sellers and agents in today's climate more than ever! 94.6 of ASP Staged Homes sell on average in 35 days or less. Unstaged homes have an average days on market time of 175 days verses an average of 35 days for those homes that are staged. However, proper pricing is critical to the selling of any home and this includes a staged home, as well!
