Do I really need a stager?

Things have changed; the majority of buyers out there are looking for a home that is move-in ready. People these days are so busy they don’t want to spend their weekends fixing up a home. Plus, all of the decorating shows on TV are changing the market and Buyers expectations. You may not agree with it but there’s no point fighting it either.

Potential buyers appreciate an uncluttered home that allows them to visualize their possessions in place.

The goal of staging is to neutralize and showcase your home’s best features by adding and arranging key “props”, both furniture and accessories, so it appeals to more people…a larger market demographic ensures you will get the best price. Some things that you “never got around to” can often be fixed at a minimal cost. For example, a damaged base board or a dangling ceiling fan in the bathroom that you always meant to fix.

The second goal of staging is to create the image of a lifestyle that potential buyers wish they were living. You want an emotional connection between the buyer and your home.
Lastly, the beauty of staging is that you can achieve a dramatic result at a reasonable cost…an outlay of $3,000+ can make a significant difference in the sale price. As more homes come to market, buyers have more choice and it becomes increasingly important  to feature your home in the best possible light.
