There is no set template for selling a home, especially the home is in need of some updating. Statistics in the past year show that buyers are less inclined to purchase a property that requires work. However, completely renovating a home to bring it into the present time can be costly both monetarily and time-wise. This is when home staging can come into your plan. Staging an older home can keep the integrity of the home while breathing new life into the space. 83% of buyers stated a staged home helped them visualize a property as their future home. Investing little in this aspect of the sale can give Sellers so much in return. Still not convinced? Here are a few benefits of staging your home.

Marketing Home Staging Opportunities

If you listed your home prior to staging, not to worry. Staging your home provides countless opportunities to market your home. Postcards with shots of the home design can be sent out. Email blasts can be sent to other agents. Invites to buyers who were previously somewhat interested can be sent. Our point is, doing so gives your Realtor® countless ways to garner attention and show your home in a new light.

More Money Than First Invested

The average amount spent on home staging is approximately $400. How much of a difference can that amount make1% to 5%? Buyers tend to offer an increased dollar amount of 1% to 5% for a staged home as opposed to a similar home that is not staged. In fact, a staged home even increased the dollar amount of a home itself by 6% to 10%. That is definitely money worth investing!

Sell My House Fast

If your home has been sitting on the market and your Realtor® has gone above and beyond with their efforts and still has no leads or interested buyers, staging your home and help move the property. How fast? According to the Real Estate Staging Association, about 73% on average than their non-staged counterparts. So declutter, freshen up your home’s aesthetic, and sell your home!

Ask Yourself is Your House Instagram Worthy?

Whatever people do for a living, odds are they love to share their lives on social media. When visiting an Open House or Broker Open, most Realtors® will share video clips or images of the property. This sort of digital marketing is great for showing the staged home to potential buyers. You’ll have an offer before you know it!
