Before I worked in real estate, I had a long and incredible career in sales and service within the casino industry.
It was quite the ride and taught me a great deal about creating appealing client experiences. When we’re trying to sell anything from casino fun to food to a home, one thing is sure – We have to show customers what can be theirs.
If you’re considering selling your home, you must remember where most people start their home search- online. People are pouring through pages of internet listings looking for a home that doesn’t just appeal to their price points or location but to their eyes.
They want to visualize where their families will spend the holidays, kick up their feet, and have friends over for dinner. Lackluster pictures of empty rooms won’t help them see your home as their next home.
Staging is an art that can transform an ordinary room into an inviting space, creating a warm mental picture for those viewing your home online. Have them dreaming about your home from the time their sights land on your listing.
If you want to get as many people into your open house as possible, having beautiful photos of your staged home will have them swiping through with anticipation that they need to get in on something others will also strongly desire.
Staging will help you make the most of any opportunity people are online or in your home thinking about their next home.
According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost for home staging is just over $700 to almost $3,000. They also reported that staged homes spend 33% to 50% less time on average on the market. So, making a small investment to spruce up your home can certainly help you maximize your profit.
I’ve seen it happen many times. Homes are taking a little longer than they were earlier this year to go to contract, and when sellers start feeling a little anxious that their house isn’t selling as fast as they’d hoped, they often want to cut the price immediately.
But, by taking other steps first, like putting a little into staging efforts, you make the most on the sale of your home- much more than the cost of staging.
