Home Staging is a process to merchandise a home for potential demographic buyers by creating emotional connection points so it sells quickly and for more money. My goal is to create with warmth, scale, harmony, and cohesion, an emotional appeal to the buyer can imagine or aspire to how life could be in the house for their family.
An average investment of 1-3% of the home’s asking price will generate an 8-10% return in the sale price of the home (National Association of Realtors). Un-staged homes spend an average of 107 days on the market – Homes that are staged prior to going on the market sell on average in 18 days (Real Estate Staging Association).
According to the Real Estate Staging Association, there is a substantial cost of not staging before selling. Carrying costs for homeowners who had their property on the market for an average of 132 days before calling a home stager equaled $17,000. Homeowners who staged prior to listing and sold on average after 18 days, had only $3400 in carrying costs.
