What is Home Staging & how will staging help sell my house?
Don’t take it personally! Staging is about depersonalizing your home! While designing and furnishing your home was about you and your personal lifestyle, the marketing and selling of your house is about preparing your house to appeal to the greatest number of buyers.
Lights, Camera, Action…Staging a house for sale can give you the edge in the competitive market. Over 40% of houses sold last year were first viewed by the buyers on the Internet. Staged homes sell faster and for more money. On a national average, staged homes sell in 29 days or less versus 145 days for an un-staged home.
As a professional home stager Bunny finds creative ways to promote your home in the real estate marketplace. She is both skilled, and practiced in the art of preparing homes for resale. A staged home will make a notable first impression on potential home buyers when they walk through the door, because your home will sparkle and show like a model home!
Why is Home Staging worth it?
While agents are experts in the field of selling and closing on homes, many are not design savvy. Agents usually know exactly what factors help to sell your home but are typically not skilled on how to get your home ready to sell in a timely fashion without the help of an experienced stager.
U.S. research states that home staging can reduce a listing’s time on the market by one third, to half and can fetch as much as 6% to 20% more than an empty home or a home not properly staged. (Wikipedia)
Staging is far less expensive than a price reduction. Reducing the selling price of a house usually averages between 5% and 10% off the original price. While home staging cost vary with each home, almost every house can benefit from a two hour consultation.
