Why Stage? Here's Why!
Is staging a home for sale worth the cost?
Definitely! Staged houses spend 33 to 50% less time on the market compared to non-staged homes. Staged homes also sell for 20% higher. This results in an extra 8 to 10% return compared to non-staged homes. Even in a hot sellers market where homes are selling fast, you will leave money on the table if your home is not shown in it's best light.
Why is it important to stage your home?
It is important to stage your home because most home buyers start their search online, looking through photographs of each property. Unstaged, poorly photographed homes shout "Bargain!" to buyers - encouraging low-ball offers. After you stage your home, professional photos are the next logical step in showing buyers why they should tour your home! Remember: staged homes make a better first impression, sell faster and for more money.
Who should pay to stage a house?
The seller or their real estate agent can pay to stage a house. Sellers can personally hire a stager and pay the expense out of pocket. Or their realtor may offer to pay for staging services as part of the selling package or include the fees in the closing costs. Sidco Properties has worked with home owners and realtors in staging properties.
Is it better to sell a house empty or furnished?
It is better to sell a furnished house so that buyers touring the property can imagine themselves in the home. Staged homes also have shorter listing periods and sell for a higher value.
Can I stage the exterior of my home?
Yes! The exterior of your home makes people want to come inside - curb appeal is everything! From fresh landscaping, to new front doors, locks, house numbers, potted plants and door mats - a little goes a long way.
Is Digital Staging a good option?
If you absolutely have to sell your home empty, a good option is digital staging. Your home is photographed empty, and then furniture and accessories are added to each room digitally. It can help to generate interest and give buyers an idea of how they will live in your home. Check out Sidco's "Digital Staging" page for more information and see examples of our digital staging projects.
One last note.....great staging starts with a de-cluttered, clean base upon which to build your beautiful rooms! If you need help de-cluttering, organizing and storing your possessions, contact Sidco Properties for those additional services!
