A lot of homeowners looking to sell their home are concerned with the overall cost it will take them to sell their home and would look for ways to cut down expenses. Most would look into staging as a way to cut down the cost. Though some may not view staging as an important factor in selling a home it is actually a crucial step for a successful sale of a home.
The result of a survey conducted by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) revealed top 3 reasons why proper staging is essential.
- If a buyer could see a home as their next home, the chances of an offer to be made is greatly increased and this is exactly what staging does, it makes it easier for buyers to visualize the home for sale as their future home.
- It is revealed that when a home for sale is staged the dollar value offered is also increased as communicated by one third of buyer agents who participated in the NAR’s survey.
- Proper staging makes a home stand out even more in the market, thus decreasing the amount of time it is actually in the market. In fact, 39% of seller agents who took part in the survey also reported that staging greatly decreases the amount of time the home is on the market.
