STAGING:

THE WONDERFUL TOOL FOR HOME SELLERS

What exactly is home staging?

The staging is the “art and science” of preparing a property to that it offers maximum buyer appeal.

Why stage a home?  Isn’t it enough just to make sure it’s pristine, de-cluttered and in good cosmetic shape --- all the things Realtor counsel buyers to do?

Simply put… home staging will contribute directly to a faster sale and a better selling price.  Statistics bear this out.

Can any home benefit from staging or is it really best reserved for the high-end?

Literally any home can benefit from staging.  A modest house a mansion or something in between --- they each have to exude buyer appeal.

Why virtually stage a vacant home?  Isn’t it easier for buyers to visualize what they would do with the blank slate?

Most buyers really can’t do that.  A vacant home, especially a large one, is often confusing.  Buyers wonder how rooms would be used, where is the flow.  It’s hard to connect emotionally with an empty space.  Remember too that vacant rooms expose all the defects and wear-and-tear.  There’s nothing to distract the eye or block a flaw.  If the owners of a vacant home want to be conservative, they can choose to simply stage the main rooms, the ones that will make the first impression.  But they should make sure that the empty rooms are in prime condition-walls, trim, floors, electrical outlets-because everything is on display.

 

PRICING

Right-pricing is even more important that presentation but fare more challenging.  Setting a price that will attract the maximum number of offers in the shortest possible time frame requires the skill, experience and broad market knowledge of a professional Realtor.  Right pricing is not a matter of making a few comparisons or getting a “Zestimate” on Zillow.com.  It requires familiarity with the psychology of today’s buyer, as well as sensitivity to the current climate of negotiations.  It is much more about marketing that ever before.  I say all this because in order to command the highest possible price, a home must attract offers during its first four weeks on the market.  Showings decrease after that point and a price reduction is inevitable.  Price correctly from the start and you’ll finish ahead of the game.
