Professionally staged homes spend 45 percent less time on the market than non-staged homes and sell for about 6 percent more - an eye-catching statistic. A sure way to make your home stand out among the competition is to hire a professional stager. They will evaluate your living space from the viewpoint of the buyer and “set the stage” allowing for potential buyers to imagine themselves living in the home.
Professional home stagers not only pare down the clutter, but they evaluate the flow of the home. They want the home to make buyers feel like they could move in tomorrow. Creating a versatile space, even beyond closed doors (i.e. inviting closets and pantries) with coordinated colors, textures and nice finishing touches could help flip the switch of the buyer, drawing them into your home.
Considering the statistics of less time on market and higher sale prices of staged homes, a small investment in a home stager could help move your property.
