According to the Real Estate Staging Association, homes which are staged before going on the market sell 73% faster, on average, than their non-staged counterparts. But, I am not referring to the any staged-models, PROPERLY-STAGED property will help you to sell the house faster, at a better price. Your best friend or a real estate agent might enjoy watching the HGTV or looking at the design magazines and visitng the pottery barn. But hiring an experienced design-professional (space design) to stage your property is essential. I understand there is a few people who are good at everything naturally, but I always tell my client, that there are reasons to hire a professional.

I strongly believe thru a process known as “home staging”, sellers can invest a little bit of money into their sale and earn themselves a huge, huge return. The purpose of this is to increase home sales with a greater perceived value. Identifying the client’s potential customers and reinforce their communities’ assets is important. It is not just about the aesthetic; trend and market research is needed to attract the right buyers.

So, here are top FIVE reasons to stage your home!

1. YOU WILL MAKE MORE MONEY

A survey by Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp. found that staged homes spend half the time on the market than non-staged home and sold for more than 6 percent above the asking price 

2. YOUR HOUSE WILLL SELL FASTER

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) survey found that the longer homes stay on the market, the further their price drops

3. YOU WILL MAKE YOUR MONEY BACK

The NAR survey also found that the average staging investment is between 1 and 3 percent of the home asking price, which generates a home-staging ROI of 8 to 10 percent

4. YOUR ON-LINE PHOTOS WILL STAND OUT

Same NAR survey found that 90% of potential buyers search online first

5. GIVE YOU AN EDGE WHILE HOSTING OPEN HOUSES

Whenever people go visit a property or a house up for sale, they like to imagine themselves living there. A properly staged house makes it easier for these potential buyers to visualize that. The house is more presentable if it has been properly staged to create an appealing image that will entice the potential client into becoming a buyer. Staging the property will help you host more successful open houses because you will be able to not only drive more attendance through online and offline marketing but give the potential buyers a better experience when you walk them through the house.
