Today's Real Estate market is considered a Seller's Market... what does that mean? Usually a Seller's Market is when there is low inventory and lots of buyers competing for the same listings. Even in a seller's market, you need every advantage you can get in order to sell your home for the top dollar the market will bring. Regardless of what kind of real estate environment you are in, staging is always a wise choice. Remember you want to make a great first impression!
There are several benefits to staging:
Staging makes you to think like the potential buyer that is going to be looking at your home from their perspective.
Staging makes you to declutter and get organized. Every inch of the home should be staged, even cabinets, drawers, closets, and pantries. The home should appear that it has ample space and storage rather than cluttered and needing more storage.
Staging can increase the likelihood of a sale. When buyers can look at a home and picture themselves living there rather than the family who does live there, they are more likely to want to purchase if they otherwise love the home.
Staging can reduce the days on market, by helping the home sell faster. When you reduce the time on the market, it’s less likely that the home will sell for a lower price than the list price.
Staging a home can get more potential buyers into the home with a good first impression. If a home shows well, more Agents will want to show the home to their clients, and therefore, increase the traffic of buyers.
Staging doesn't have to mean renting furniture if you are still residing in the home. As your agent, I can help you decide what needs to be done and how to utilize what you may already have to show your home in all it's glory!
