Why We Strongly Believe Home Staging Works!

People often ask us why we recommend staging a home before putting it on the market? Why do we think it is so effective? According to the National Association of Realtors, "for every $100 invested in staging, the potential return is $400." According to the Real Estate Staging Association "homes staged before hitting the market sell, on average, 73 percent faster than their unstaged counterparts." Here are some additional reasons why we feel staging is so important!

  • 90% of today's buyers start their home search online, so great photos are essential. Professional photos of a beautifully staged property will drive more traffic to your open house and create more interest. 
  • Photographing an empty house will make the interior space feel smaller.
  • Once a Buyer walks into a staged home they will start to visualize themselves there. They will picture how they themselves would enjoy and utilize the space on a daily basis. This will help create an emotional connection with the property.
  • Having professional photos of your beautiful staged home will not only provide a better online presence of your property but will enable our team to create gorgeous print marketing materials such as Newspress Ads, Magazine Ads, Bi-fold brochures, postcards, and more.
