"You get one chance to make a first impression ... staging your home can help you make a great impression!"
The first impression is the key factor in selling your home. A potential buyer makes up their mind about your home in 30 seconds or less, whether you market your home online with professional photos or potential buyers drive-up to your home.
Home Staging is a process to prepare and showcase your home to sale in the real estate market. When you decide to sell your home, it's no longer your home, it's a commodity for sale. Home staging is more than decorating a room. Home staging emphasizes the best features, to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible, so your home sells more quickly, and for more money.
Does Home Staging Work?
Does Home Staging work? Yes...
According to the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA):
Occupied homes should be staged before placing the home on the market. 2014 study - RESA studied 20 homes, priced between $100K to $299K that were put on the market before staging. Unfortunately, those homes sat on the market, on average, for 127 days. Once staged, they sold, on average 31 days.
A 2013 study found that homes, not staged, would site on the market, on average, for 143 days. Those same homes, once staged, sold, on average in 40 days.
A 2012 study found, If you invest in home staging before listing you will sell 87% faster.
Home Staging Process & Goals
Every Williams' Haven home staging project begins with a consultation and ends with the hands-on staging of the home.
Home Staging Goals: There are 4-goals, Williams’ Haven aims to achieve with each project:
Roomy & Spacious - Make the interior of your home appear as large and spacious as possible.
As light as possible – When a space has a lot of light it appears warm and welcoming. I will show you how you can lighten-up the interior of your home.
Emphasize the best features of your home– Best features are selling points of a home that potential buyers want, i.e., fireplaces.
Create emotional attachments to your home – That “wow” factor. When a potential homebuyer connects with a home, it increases the possibility of the selling of the home. Let Williams’ Haven show you how.
