Has your house been stuck on the market for months or are you consistently receiving offers well below your asking price? Home staging solves this dilemma by dealing with three typical problems in real estate sales.
Organize-a disorganized home makes a house seem smaller, more like a fixer-upper than a home ready for the buyer. Home staging deals with clutter through the use of more efficient furniture and/or expert consultation.
Modernize-older furnishings cause a house to seem like a project, not a place that's ready for a family to move in. Home staging can help you update your real estate at a better price than buying whole new furnishings, helping you turn a better profit.
Visualize-a home without furnishings can seem cold and uninviting, not warm and comfortable, full of possibilities. Home staging turns your empty house into a model home. Homes that are professionally staged generally net a considerable profit over the cost of home staging.
The Process of Home Staging
Home staging can either be a process you take charge of on your own, with your realtor or with the assistance of home staging professionals. Bringing in a professional, however, is like watching television as a home decorating show does its magic. After assessing the problem aspects of your property, a home staging consultant will devise solutions that fit your budget and likely create a profit beyond staging costs on your now impending sale.
Why use rental furniture?
Let's face it-not all of us have an interior decorator's touch. Furnishings purchased through the years often don't fit together or have simply become outdated. For the empty home, stylish furniture gives the buyer a sense of what the space can accomplish. Rental furnishings create a modern and contemporary atmosphere that lends a professional, upscale look to any property. It creates a vision for the buyer of the potential in a home.
Benefits for Real Estate Agents
Experience the joy of showing a property that looks like a model home instead of a house that needs a remodel. Avoid the frustration of trying to sell a cluttered and disorganized property. With professional home staging you can garner sales on real estate that might otherwise sit on the market.
Benefits for Owners
Selling fast and turning a profit are the goals of any homeowner with a house for sale. Home staging creates an appealing property that will generally out-sell and out-perform comparable homes. A small investment can generate a considerable return in time saved and dollars made on your sale.
