"Positive first impressions are key in selling your home
quickly & for more money"
What Is Home Staging?
The art of preparing your home to sell by enhancing your property.
From outside curb appeal to inside storage solutions, furniture and art placement, organizing, cleaning, de-cluttering and the colours on the wall... these ALL help create a positive first impression. Potential buyers can easily imagine living in your home.
Home Staging Prepares Your Home To Sell
When you get ready to sell your home - it becomes a product. This product has strengths & weaknesses as well as competition. To compete, you MUST be priced right and look better than any other product.
Competition can be from new homes and professionally designed display suites to a number of resale properties in a similar price range. Home staging allows the seller to gain a competitive edge in the market place.
Most people cannot visualize what a home COULD look like if upgrades and repairs are needed. They want fresh paint, small repairs completed, lawn maintained - not having to do this when they move in - this is a strong selling feature!!
Coldwell Banker tracked 2,772 homes. The non-staged homes were on the market an average of 30 days getting an average of 1.3% above selling... The staged homes were on the market an average of 14 days getting an average of 6.3% above selling...*
