Why should I Stage my home?
In order to gain an edge over the competition in the market place, your home must be priced right and look better than the competition. A staged home maximizes your return on investment.
While real estate is an investment, the reason someone buys a house is emotional. A staged home invites a buyer into a room and allows them to see themselves in it. It shows that the home is taken care of, so calms any fears of hidden costs and problems. It showcases the strengths of the property rather than the shortfalls. In fact, over 77% of buyers find it “easier to visualize the property as their future home” when it is staged. And, almost a third of buyers are more willing to “overlook property faults” when the home is staged.
The right price will get the buyer in the door, but Staging sells a house!
Here are a few more facts and statistics on the benefits of staging:

A cluttered or vacant home is not appealing “in person”, but it’s even less appealing in pictures. Real estate agents looking for potential properties, or clients browsing the internet, pass by vacant homes because it’s hard to tell how big the “vanilla” space really is. If a home’s cluttered, the room will appear much smaller than it actually is.
Real estate agents know they are more likely to sell a home that is staged and designed to sell, than a home that is cluttered or vacant.
