Popular Staging Questions:
Do I need to stage in a Seller's market? In a seller's market, the number of homes available are low, so competition is fierce! staging creates bidding wars while pushing the selling price over listing price! National Study: "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 multiple homes to choose from as the market is saturated. staging helps your property stand out from the rest. National Study: "Staged properties sell faster in a flooded market in 30 days or less."
Is the cost of staging worth it? the out of pocket expense for staging is always less than the first price reduction! staging costs on average are 1% of the listing price, however staging fetches a 5-15% gain on the closing sales price! Wouldn't you say it's worth it?
What if I choose not to stage before listing to see how it goes ? It is essentially gambling with one of your largest investments. If the property doesn't sell within 30 days, it will receive a 1% price drop. Once there has been a price drop, buyers wonder what's wrong with the property. Unfortunately, once a property receives a price drop, another one is soon to follow.
if you have moved into your new home, while your other property sits on the market, Sellers could be forced to pay two mortgages and two sets of utilities. all of this can add up to extraordinary stress and expense. Why place yourself in this stressful position?? Stage first.
My realtor said I don't have to stage, should I? Realtors are trained experts in selling and buying transactions, demographics, comps, etc.. however, most are not trained in the staging industry. Realtors that tell you that you don't have to stage probably have not worked with a stager and are unfamiliar with the benefits, not only for their clients but for them as a Realtor.
if you are working with a top producing Realtor, they more than likely will refer you to their favorite staging company. they have seen firsthand how staged homes sell faster for more money. this creates a higher return for their clients (happy client) and a higher commission for the Realtor, (happy realtor). If your realtor is not recommending staging, don't be afraid to mention that you would like to hire one. This is one of your largest investments, it is up to you to ensure you doing everything possible to receive the highest return possible.
I have art hanging up and a couple of chairs in the house, is that enough? Short answer, no. the purpose of staging is to offer the Buyer a frame of reference to see how their own belongings will fit, draw attention to architectural features, and create a positive emotion that makes buyers fall in love with a property. Take buying a car for instance. would you buy a used car that has hail damage, lots of scratches, missing hub caps and filthy, or purchase one that someone has put effort into repairing and detailing it for the next owner?
Does virtual staging work? When virtual staging first came out, it was considered a bait and switch tactic to many buyers. Today, it is addressed upfront on the photos that it is virtually staged. virtual staging's can look good online, however when the Buyers arrive at the property, they have no frame of reference and don't emotionally fall in love with the house. Lets face it, buying a house is an emotional purchase. Buyers have expresses that virtual staging does not have the same effect as physical staging.
Interesting fact: Vacant homes look smaller without furnishings.
