To Stage or not To Stage?....Definitely Stage! Staging can have a huge impact on the sale of your home and your pocket. Did you know that professionally staged homes can sell 10% higher on average than homes not staged and they sell faster too. A 2 hour consultation can cost between $150-$400 depending on location and size of the home. This will usually include:
Redecorating windows with new dressings, or using existing dressings in a different way;
Displaying accessories and collectibles in pleasing "vignettes";
Adding elements that draw the attention to appealing areas such as fireplaces, patios, and porches;
Bringing in a large number of "props" that enhance the overall "tone" of any space. This could mean adding plants, pillows, furniture, baskets, artwork, lighting fixtures, and much more.
Of course not everyone is willing to put money into a house they are parting with but I urge you to reconsider because a good return on your investment is always a good thing. Can't hire, won't hire a professional? Here are a few helpful tips that will definitely make a difference to perspective buyers.
First get rid of the clutter, because lets face it Less is More. Second, cleanliness is Godliness make sure your home looks, feels and smells clean...place plug ins in the main areas and bathrooms. Third, touch up paint where needed or paint an accent wall to bring out your home's best feature, for this warm neutral colors always work best. Fourth, pull furniture away from the walls and rearrange into a cozy conversational grouping with good lighting. These same principles apply to the exterior of your home. Cleanliness, tasteful colors in the way of flowers as well as paint and make your outdoor living space as comfortable and inviting as possible. I hope you find these tips helpful and feel free to contact me @ 561-734-5531 with any questions regarding the sale of your home.
