What is Real Estate Staging?
Real Estate Staging is the process of preparing a property so that it will sell for top dollar as quickly as possible. It has been proven that professional staging is a short-term, high-yield investment that reduces a home’s time on the market. It is a fact that properties in good condition sell faster and for a higher price. In an appearance on “The Nate Berkus Show”, Barbara Corcoran – real estate agent, mogul and contributor to NBC’s “Today Show” – stated “Home staging is no longer optional in this real estate market. It’s what will make the difference in whether your home sells or not.” Then she goes on to say that home staging can add at least 5% to 7% to the sales value of a home!
Today, most buyers are putting their full investment into the purchase price of the home and don’t have extra money for any major work. In addition, the majority of buyers do not have the time for renovation.
Over 60% of buyers will pay more for homes that are move in ready.
When a home is listed for sale it becomes a “product” and the goal is to create an emotional connection between your home and a potential buyer. A prospective buyer’s impression of your home is formed the first time they drive by. It is vital that it appears well maintained and inviting so that they are excited to research further. They should experience your home through all of their senses – from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave.
At Barlow’s our focus is on showcasing the best features of the property – making rooms look as bright and spacious as possible, creating that “wow” factor and increasing buyer appeal. It is essential that you make the most of every opportunity available to you in order to create a lifestyle atmosphere in which buyers envision themselves living. A staging consultation from Barlow’s begins with a comprehensive room-by-room assessment and curb appeal evaluation. We then provide you a plan and our team will work with you to enhance your property’s beauty and help create a home that stands out in the marketplace.
