Home Staging is a great way for you to maximize the potential value in your home.  Here are 5 key reasons that home staging works and why you should consider it for your own home.

1. It is proven that staged homes sell for more. People also believe that staged homes are better maintained than those that are not. It shows people you care and are putting your best foot forward.  Why leave money on the table?  Go for it! Your house deserves to look its best.  Take that extra cash from your home sale and put it toward your new home.  We can help make that look fabulous too.

2. First Impressions are lasting ones. It takes less than 10 seconds for someone to form an impression when they walk in the front door.  Why not WOW them from the beginning?  Here’s a simple test.  Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Come home one day and imagine it is the first time you are walking into your own home – what first comes to mind?  Hopefully you are thinking, “Wow it’s spacious, inviting and comfortable” If not, give us a call.  We can help you achieve that.

3. 81% of buyers say home staging makes it easier to visualize the property as their future home. Staged homes not only look gorgeous and more appealing to buyers, but often times they take the guesswork out of furniture placement and overall use of certain rooms, especially rooms that have awkward layouts or have a small footprint. People will question “will our king bed fit in the master?” The answer is yes!

4. Stand out.  About 90% of people looking for a home start their search online. It is important to remember potential buyers are looking at several properties at one time – not just yours. Make sure your property has that “it” factor that they can’t wait to check out!  A staged home draws them in.  From the moment they view your listing online or walk in during an open house or private showing, give them every reason to want to put in an offer.


Here’s another test -Have a look at these before and after pictures. Which one is more appealing?  The staged one of course-because you can visualize it.

5. ROI. The money invested in home staging can make you thousands more on your home sale.  In a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) found that the average staging investment is between 1 and 3 percent of the asking price, which generates a home staging ROI of 8-10 percent.
