Home Staging Strategies to Sell Your Home For More

Todays Date: December 16, 2018

Homeowners wanting to sell their home are in for some good news as many real estate markets are showing signs of rebound. For example, Denver, Colorado is one such market that is seeing homes in the $100,000-$300,000 range sell quickly and for more than expected. However, despite these positive trends, sellers remain cautious and competition is tough, especially since foreclosed properties continue to saturate most markets.

One way to maintain the competitive edge, increase the desirability of your home and set it up for a quick sale is to have your home professionally staged. The main idea behind staging is that it depersonalizes the style of the home so it appeals to a more broad range of buyers. You want a prospective buyer to picture himself living in the home.

Studies show that homes that have been professionally staged are sold more quickly and for more money than homes that have not been staged. However, home owners are still reluctant to use this sales strategy, for a number of reasons.

1. It is too expensive. The cost to professionally stage a home can fluctuate. As the objective of home staging is to emphasize its positive features and downplay the negatives, a house that is already in terrific condition will have a lower bill to professionally stage it. Most professional stagers will meet with you and provide a cost estimate, and many are even allowing creative payment options to meet your particular needs.

2. It will be too involved. Home staging can be as simple as getting rid of your junk and moving the furniture around. On the other hand, it might demand a complete overhaul of every room in the house. The good news is that drastic of a tactic is rarely necessary, and focusing on a few main rooms such as the kitchen, baths and master bedroom will often give outstanding results. A major factor is to get rid of all your junk, so that the unique qualities of your home will be best displayed.

3. It will be too time consuming. The truth is that even the most complicated staging projects rarely takes more than a week, and the average time spent is one to three days.

The housing market continues to be tough, and houses competing with bargain priced bank owned properties need as much help as they can get. Having your home professionally staged may be the added bonus you need to get a favorable price for your home.
