What is professional staging?
Professional staging can be summed up by enhancing a home's potential to sell for a high price. A stager can come into a home and objectively assess its best qualities, which is a task a homeowner is oftentimes unable to complete. Thus, a stager can use various design elements in order to extenuate a home's best qualities while demising its faults. No home is perfect, but with the help of a professional stager your home can certainly appear to be!
How much does it cost?
Prices vary based on the specific services required as well as the size of the home. However, prices start $100 for a consultation in a vacant property and $200 for an occupied property, but we recommend that you contact us directly for a personalized quote.
The housing market is good, so why do I need to stage?
Although a home may sell quickly in a good market, this does not mean that you have maximized every cent of your potential profit. Professional staging has been shown to consistently increase the selling price of a home by 10% on average. Furthermore, staging your home will allow buyers to better imagine their own lives in the space - oftentimes initiating a faster offer.
Why can't I just stage my own home?
Home owners are emotionally attached to their homes and all of the amazing memories they may hold. This attachment may make it difficult for the homeowner to view their home objectively, thus making it challenging for a homeowner to stage their own home. A professional stager is trained to objectively evaluate every property in order to maximize profit through the use of their arsenal of sophisticated design strategies.
Can't home buyers use their imagination and look past my decor or empty rooms?
About 90% of home buyers find it difficult to picture a home beyond the state that it is currently in. Meaning, if a typical home buyer sees an empty home they will not but able to adequately imagine it furnished as it can be difficult to visualize size and scale. Likewise, if your home is already furnished many home buyers will be unable to see past your own decorating taste and personal touches. A professional stager is able to come into your home and find the most objectively flattering way to display the home that will appeal to the largest portion of home buyers.
