Did you know that staged homes sell in LESS TIME and for MORE MONEY than homes that aren’t staged? Especially in this crazy market with next to no inventory, don't you want to pocket as much money as possible??
For so many people, they don’t even know where to begin when it comes to getting their home ready to put on the market. So many people just put it on “as is” to “see what happens”, and in this market you can certainly do that. But after it sells, will you think back and wonder if you could have gotten more $$$? Especially if it was a FREE service that you missed out on??
There are a couple of different avenues to take when it comes to staging a home, depending on what’s needed. My partner, Joni Baldwin, is an accredited stager herself and she will generally go through a seller’s home, room by room, and recommend to them exactly what they need to do, whether it’s packing something, re-arranging something, or adding some staging materials. If an abundance of staging materials are needed, and it’s mostly accessories and such, we have an abundant supply. We offer this service at NO COST to our sellers and thoroughly enjoy helping them make their home the best that it can be. Always remember that the way we live in our home is fine, but the way our home needs to be to show well and sell quickly is a completely different thing. DECORATE A HOME TO LIVE IN IT, STAGE A HOUSE TO SELL IT!
Having someone else step in to advise and help with this much needed task really takes some of the pressure off of a seller to figure it out on their own. You really need that extra set of eyes to take a look to see what your home needs. It may not need a thing, it may be perfect as it is, but make sure of that before listing!!
