There isn’t a day in which we fail to comment on the state of the economy and the current climate of the real estate and design industry. The ripple effects can be felt throughout and how you deal with it can make all the difference.
Home owners and realtors looking to sell homes and make their listings stand out above the rest depend on the home not only having that curb appeal but a move in ready atmosphere as soon as the buyer walks through the door.
The Dayton Area Board of Realtors can offer some insight into the benefits of investing time and effort into this process as well as insight into buying or selling a home in today’s market. Below I have listed eight reasons to stage your home.
1.) Staged Homes sell faster.
2.) Staged homes get higher offers
3.) Staged houses look better in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) pictures; therefore, attracting more potential buyers to actually make the effort to view the home.
4.) Staged houses have an edge over competing properties, and the staging can often sway the final decision.
5.) Staged rooms appear larger to potential buyers
6.) The potential to sell good, un-needed furniture/accessories is present.
7.) A staged home makes a statement to potential buyers as to the pride and care that a seller has in their home.
8.) Non-staged homes linger on the market for an average of 175 days; whereas staged homes have an average of 35 days on the market.
