POPULAR STAGING QUESTIONS
Do I need to stage in a Seller's market? In a seller's market staging creates bidding wars. this pushes the selling price way over listing! National Statistic: "Home Staging in a seller's market can fetch an average of 5-15% return on investment over asking price."
Do I need to stage in a Buyer's market? In a Buyer's market there are tons of homes to choose from. staging makes your property stand out from the rest. National Statistic: Staged properties sell faster in a flooded market (30 days or less).
Is the cost of staging worth it? Let's be frank, the out of pocket expense for staging is always less than the first price reduction! An average staging costs on average 1% of the listing price, however staging fetches a 5-15% gain on the closing sales price! Wouldn't you say that kind of return on your investment is worth it?
What if I choose not to stage before listing? It is essentially gambling with your largest investment. If the home does not sell within 30 days, it receives a 1% price drop. Once there has been a price reduction, buyers wonder what's wrong with the property and pass it up. Unfortunately, once a house receives a price reduction, another is soon to follow. While the property sits on the market Sellers could be forced to pay two mortgages and utilities for two properties. all of this can add up to extraordinary stress and expense for the Seller. Don't place yourself in this position, stage first.
My REALTOR said I Don't have to stage, so do I? The short answer is...Highly recommended! Realtors are trained and experts in selling your home (transactions, demographics, comps. they may not be brushed up on the staging industry. Perhaps they have never hired or worked with a stager, or are familiar with the staging statistics. However, top producing Realtors will likely refer you to their favorite staging company or have a in house stager. they have seen first hand how staged homes sell faster and for more money, thus creating a higher return for their clients (happy client), and a higher commission in their pocket (happy realtor).
This is one of your largest investment, it is up to you to ensure you doing everything possible to receive the most money possible.
I have art hanging up and a chair or two in the corners, isn't that consider staging? no, the purpose of Staging is to offer the Buyer a frame of reference for each space, draw attention to architectural features and create emotion. (Look at it like packaging for things at a store. Would you buy something off the shelf that had one piece of tape holding it together or didn't look as attractive or have the value as the other items on the same shelf?) Without staging buyers cant envision how their belongings or lifestyle will fit into the home.
funny fact: Vacant homes appear smaller without furniture (yes smaller).
