Frequently Asked Questions
“Is home staging expensive?”
Home staging is not nearly as expensive as lowering your asking price by 10% to 40%. According to the National Association of Realtors 2017 survey, every $100 spent on staging your home gives you a ROI (re-turn on investment) of $349.
“Can’t potential home buyers use their imagination and look past the clutter and current décor?”
Only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of the home. It is very important to have an occupied home staged. It allows the buyers to picture themselves actually living there.
This is even more important with vacant homes. Buyers can not visualize size and scale. Furniture helps give them a frame of reference. Staging a vacant home also engages buyers emotionally. And lets face it, when we sell a house, that is exactly what we are selling – an emotion. People buy on emotion!
