Whether doing it yourself or hiring a professional, staging can boost a listing’s chances of being sold more quickly in any kind of market. – See the complete article at The Residential Specialist.
The purpose of staging is to engage the heart of prospective buyers to move them toward a sale,” says Carl Medford, CRS, with Keller Williams Realty in Fremont, California. “We get them there much quicker with a staged home than a vacant one.”
According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2015 Profile of Home Staging, 81 percent of REALTORS® say staging makes it easier for buyers to visualize a property as a future home, and 46 percent say buyers are more willing to walk through a home that they viewed online.
The practice of staging — de-cluttering, cleaning and accessorizing a home before putting it on the market — has gained greater public awareness in the past 10 years, thanks to home improvement programs on HGTV. But better-educated consumers mean higher expectations, and today’s buyers want to purchase a home that is move-in ready with no additional effort on their part. REALTORS® who offer staging consultations or services say staging helps sellers fix the flaws in the home and update the décor to current standards to make the home appear more move-in ready. Those efforts can pay off by achieving a quicker sale for close to the list price, leading to a win-win-win situation for the agent, buyer and seller.
