What is the Expense of Staging My Home?
Your home is your most valuable asset, so of course when the time comes to sell, you want to do everything you can to make it most attractive and get the highest price possible. Research shows that well-staged homes can sell approximately 32% faster than those that are non-staged, plus often command higher sale prices of up to 10% more. Homes that are properly staged make a great first impression. It’s all about selling a lifestyle, and it’s proven that homes which exude warmth, elegance, romance and sex appeal sell fastest. Staging helps paint a picture for buyers so they can imagine themselves entertaining, relaxing or cooking dinner in the space. Staging can involve anything from putting a new color on the wall or boxing up knick knacks to rearranging furniture or bringing in new décor. Your agent will work with you to find staging solutions to optimize your apartment’s appeal.
Staging is the art of getting your home to show its best and make an emotional connection with buyers. There are many no-cost and low-cost ways to make a home show better. In some cases, it makes sense to spend more significant amounts of money to improve and update a home.
In the long run, however, it does not cost you a dime. Here is why: When staging is done wisely, it adds more dollars to your sales price than it costs you to complete the staging. In effect, the buyer pays for the staging and you end up with a higher net price.
