Homeowners are always asking "If I am selling my home why would I invest money into it?". We understand the thought process behind this common phrase and we show the homeowner the value staging properties for sale has for the homeowners.
The main reason staging homes for sale makes sense is that on average statistics prove that a home can sell in half the time and for as much as 6% higher than un-staged homes. This alone shows the value of home staging in regards to cutting the stress of selling your home in half and putting more money in your pocket. It is stressful on any home owner to have their house active on the real estate market. You have to be show ready at all times for the whole duration of the selling process. You sometimes get last minute showings giving you only a few minutes to clear the house. So doesn't it make sense to stage your home if you can cut the time on the market in half. That means half the time you have to be show ready, and start living like you want instead of for the potentail sale. It gets you past the selling phase, to the sold phase and looking forward to the next chapter of your life somewhere new. Now, the value in dollars from staging your home is huge. If you can achieve on average up to 6% more that adds up fast. In the Greater Vancouver area with the average price of a detached home going for more than $900,000.00 that 6% can mean and extra $54,000.00 in your pocket just from staging - WOW.
Those were the two main reasons why homeowners should stage their homes, here are some more:
When a home is staged, the pictures look great and those pictures are then used on the mls to market your home. With 77% of buyers shopping for potential homes to buy on the Internet, these pictures become very valuable marketing tools.
Professional home stagers are experts at dealing with the negative aspects of any property. We can move the focus from negative features and showcase the positive aspects. This dramatically reduces the potential buyer's being turned off and also keeps them from deducting money from their offer.
