Staging forces you to organize and de-clutter. Clearing away shelves, closets and cabinets is a big part of the home staging process. It also helps with moving, because you'll have to pack things away at some point anyway. So when you stage your home, you will also get a head start on packing to move.
Staging increases likelihood of a sale. When selling your home, you must do everything within your power to increase your chances of selling and I mean everything. These techniques can give you an extra edge in selling the home quickly.
Staging reduces the home's time on market. When you put in the extra effort to stage your home effectively, you will move closer to a quick sale. Anyone who has sold a home before can attest to the fact that the least time the home is on the market, the better. This is especially important if you will be paying two mortgages until the home sells (as is the case when you buy a new home before selling the old one).
Staging helps justify the asking price. if you are in a seller's market and you price your home correctly, you probably won't have to haggle over the asking price. But in a market that leans toward the buyer, you need everything in your favor to justify the asking price. Proper home staging can help you justify the asking price by positioning the home more favorably in the buyer's mind.
Staging can be fun! It may sound like all work and no play at first. Granted, you will certainly be putting some elbow grease into the process. But staging a home can be a creative process as well, and many people find they enjoy it once they've begun.
There are many things that a homeowner can do to get their home ready for resell. Remove clutter, paint, decorate, and so why hire a stager?
Well for one thing homeowners may be unsure as to what color to choose, what clutter to remove; they are overwhelmed with the process of selling their home.
A home stager has the ability to look at the home with a fresh pair of eyes. See what a buyer will see and fix what needs to be done.
Here are some of the benefits you will reap when you hire a home stager:
