Why it’s so important to stage your home and put your best house forward,
Why staging should be a consideration in every seller’s budget!
Home is where the heart is, plus ….. Where we stack mail, leave bananas to rot, cover the walls in family photos, kids toys serve as décor and even store the bike we can’t fit in storage. Home is a beautiful, crazy mess where life happens, but are potential buyers able to envision their own beautiful, crazy mess without being distracted by yours?
80% all buyers began their search on the internet; Are they passing by your listing because of what they see?
Kris Berg, a blogger for HGTV, puts it perfectly, “….You can either be ‘the house with the beautiful arched doorways’ or ‘the house with the Elvis throw rug and a bunch of office furniture where the living room should be.” It’s not to say that Elvis paraphernalia doesn’t sell a home, it just probably doesn’t help, in terms of décor, furniture, and sometimes even layout; what speaks to you may not speak to your future buyer. Professionally staging brings an objective third party to evaluate with a fresh perspective.
Shay Micek, Founder of Perch Staging, has been Corken + Company’s exclusive partner and staging expert over more than a decade in the Denver metro area. Staging has been a proven success for this partnership year over year with rewards to the seller in actual dollar value and/or cosmetic distinction from other houses increasing the amount of days on market. The National Association of Realtors estimates that a seller has the potential to recoup $400 for every $100 spent on staging. In addition, a staged home is estimated to sell for 6-25% more than an unstaged home. A stager holds the key to your return on your investment and potential profit you and your home deserve.
Emotionally detach and leave the rest up to your realtor and stager what you can do to put your best house forward. Focus on the most important rooms to stage , your living room, your master bedroom, and your kitchen. You’ll be glad you did when the offers start pouring in after just a few days on the market!
