Staging is the process of preparing a property for sale. Your home is the single biggest investment you will ever own. Be sure to get the most from your investment when it is time to sell. Architectural features, custom detailing and floor space are all enhanced as a result of staging. Staged properties are viewed as well maintained homes and that brings value to the table when negotiating price.
1. Staging secures equity
Staged properties sell for more than "as is" homes and with fewer days on the market
Gives the property an opportunity to garner the highest possible price during any market condition
2. A showcased property outshines the competition in every way
Provides the best photo opportunities for online and print
Allows the buyer to connect with the property immediately
Attracts the most potential buyers to the property, generating multiple qualified leads
Closes the door for price negotiations with regards to repairs, or upgrades
3. Offers a buyer a “MOVE IN READY” home.
4. Real Estate Professionals will feel confident showing their buyers your property
5. Buyers will take pride in their purchase and feel that they have received a good home for the value.
Preparing your property for sale involves all or part of cleaning, decluttering, minor repairs, substantial repairs, curb appeal and painting.
Showcasing is completed after all the prep work is finished and involves the proper placement of furniture, art work, addition of lighting and accessories which enhances the homes natural features and benefits.
When you’re thinking about buying a new home or, making a major transition, it is normal to feel more than a little overwhelmed with the process. There are so many small details that need tending to. Where do you begin?
The average homeowner greatly underestimates the time and resources required to prepare a property for sale. If you don’t want to overwhelm yourself, start to prepare your property for sale at least six months prior to the estimated list date. This will reduce stress, and make the process more enjoyable for the whole family.
