I get this question all the time does staging really work? Do I really need to stage my home?
And my answer is yes to both of those questions. My last two staged property sold in 3-days and 72-hours after hitting the market.
A staged home can get more return on your investment. And sales more quickly verses a non-staged home on the market. Staging is not that expensive in the long run. Just think of this the more time my property sits on the market sometimes can mean paying for two mortgages. Unless your property has not had proper routine maintenance, then it could cost you.
One quick and fairy inexpensive fixes is paint. Yes, paint! The dark red and beige paint colors are out. Lighting the walls with a soft gray or off-white is all the rage these days. This is a way to get top dollar for your house.
I always tell my clients the most important part of home staging is de-cluttering big bulky items have got to go. Hiding their personal care products, no one wants to see other people personal care. They need to envision themselves in the space with their own items. Going to The Container Store is always a great idea to get baskets to hide items in or tidy up the pantry. You always want everything to look very high-end. My other biggie is no personal photos of family members.
Staging is not decorating. Staging = getting top dollar for your property. At the end of the day buyers are looking for a home that looks and feels new even if it’s a resale. Still need help, and then call me I can help take your property from drab to fab!
