Although professional staging is a relatively new industry, people have been "fixing up" their homes to sell for decades. What has changed is buyers' expectations. Buyers today are accustomed to seeing staged homes on HGTV and the DIY Network, and numerous polls show that most buyers are willing to pay more for a home that is move-in ready.
The national average for a price reduction is 10%. HSR Certified Stagers like me help homeowners get an average of 10% over list price. The initial investment in home staging is always less than a price reduction.
Have a different question about staging? Call, text, or email me. I would love to answer it for you!
Home Staging is the preparation of a home for sale by a professional who specializes in this form of design and has been trained and certified by a recognized provider. I have access to important resources and an international network of professional stagers. I know how to see houses, condos, and apartments as products to sell, not spaces to decorate. The vast majority of home sellers cannot view a home objectively, and many successful Realtors do not have the time, training, or trade resources to properly stage. Choose a professional who is well trained in managing the confluence of marketing and design to sell properties.
My Premium Home Staging Consultation is the best value in the business. You get a 20-page photo-filled DIY Action Plan full of staging tips and tricks that is yours to keep after I spend up to 2 hours with you going through your home AND a Client Care Package with loads of educational materials, statistics, tips, and checklists to help you successfully complete the staging process. PLUS, you can call me if a question pops up. All for around $200. Plus, you can book staging services with me starting for as little as $175. You will see huge returns on this small investment, as your home will be among the very best listings online, which will drive traffic to your property.
Can a home ever sell for too much? Remember, HSR Certified professionally staged homes sell on a conservative average for 10% more in a good market (see the Latest Home Staging Statistics).
Home sellers are usually incapable of successfully staging their own homes. Why? Because they’ve gotten used to the way it looks and have developed blind spots to its drawbacks. It can be difficult to make changes because people are emotionally attached to their homes. Leave home staging to a professional. I know why and how to make the specific changes your property needs to show to its best advantage.
Studies show that less than 10% of buyers can visualize the potential of a home, and most of these folks are investors or "flippers" who will hammer you on price. During your Premium Home Staging Consultation, I will identify any "price eroding" aspects of your property so that you can do the simple fixes that maximize returns. I can also guide you on which improvements will not be worth the investment.
