Are you considering selling your house? Do you want to get fast and a large sum of money from selling you home? Then, why don’t you stage your home? It is very simple and effective. Here are some home staging facts that you need to know before you decide.
Some home staging facts that you must first consider is the selling leverage of staged homes versus vacant or unstaged homes. In recent survey conducted by the Accredited Staging Professionals of Staged Homes in 2007, 94% of all staged homes are being sold in less that one month. Vacant or unstaged homes linger around the market for 2 years or more. The more that you presented your house, the faster it can be sold.
Staged homes also can give you more profit that vacant or unstaged homes. Staged homes can give an average of 6.9% more value than vacant or unstaged homes, which means that you can have an additional $34,500 when you staged and sell your $500,000 value house. Another thing, the longer your house stays for selling in the market the lesser the value of the house. This definitely means that a house will have a good value if it is brought faster.
In addition, buyers want to see what if the house would like with furnitures than with an empty space. Statistics show that 9 out of 10 buyers cannot easily see the real scale of a vacant house. Most people want a real reference to see how large or small the room area is. Sometimes, buyers also don’t even know what part of the house are they in. What’s more, every crack and spot can be easily seen in a vacant house than by a staged house. A staged house will not only highlight the main aspects of the house, but it will make the buyer imagine himself moving in the house than to think that it is only a house. Buyers already have a basic idea of a house in 15 seconds; and they can only stay in an average of 5 minutes inside a vacant house but stays longer in a well furnished house at an averaged of 40 minutes.
But if you are staging your home, then you must have some savings in order to do it. If you are hiring a home stager, then expect to pay from $2000 - $5000 only for the consultation and an approximate amount of $3000 - $5000 for the staging process. You can also stage your own home which is cheaper, but if it is badly worn out then you might spend around $1000 - $3000 depending on the damages. Don’t worry though; you can still get that value once you are done. You can have a return of $5070 for the buyer’s initial payment to your $3000 staging investment.
