Have you thought about the impression your house will make? Staging a house can help you create one that will not only impress buyers, but will increase the value of a property for sale.
What is Staging?
Buyers typically make a decision as to their first impression of a home within the first 15 seconds. Your objective is to capture their interest-will they be excited about the possibility of living in this house with their family and with all their furnishings? It´s imperative you appeal to the widest audience of potential buyers. To do that, you must present your property neutral enough not to offend and colorful enough to create interest and an excitement level beckoning them to buy! You can achieve this stunning first impression with Staging!
Staging is the art from of preparing a property for sale. When you’ve lived in a house for any amount of time, you get used to things the way they are. An Accredited Staging Professional (ASP™) will provide an objective analysis of your property resulting in the transformation of your “home” into a product for sale.
Benefits of Staging a House
If you were to sell your car, would you sell it in “as is” condition, or would you detail it first? An “as is” house gives potential buyers the impression that they have leverage for allowances. If adequate improvements are made, there is no need for negotiations. Your home is, most likely, your most valuable asset. Staging will help it to show at its maximum potential setting it apart from the competition because it has a well-maintained, updated, fresh appearance. Your competition may even be model homes-to compete, you will need to show your home almost as if it were a model!
Selling and moving are stressful. Staging aids in the moving process by helping you to get organized and pack up excess items. Our Staging Consultation creates an action plan that will enhance the strong points of your home and suggest solutions for any perceived weaker areas. Typically, your home will be on the market for a shorter period of time which means less stressful showing time.
When Should Your Stage Your House?
Plan and prepare BEFORE the sign goes up in the yard!
You property should look its best before Realtors view it, before price is determined and before photos are taken. Almost 80% of home buyers now go to the web first to view properties before they look at them with their Realtor. Work on achieving a picture-perfect visual no matter how it´s first seen.
Already on the market? Staging a house will enhance saleability. Vacant, cold and void of character? Staging with accessories and a few small furniture items will warm up rooms and buyers can envision how their things might fit. Order in the House Staging Services´ furniture rental affiliates will help to enhance properties with larger furniture pieces when needed.
