TRANSFORM YOUR HOME INTO A BUYER’S DREAM HOME
WHY IS HOME STAGING IMPORTANT
WHEN SELLING MY HOME?
Home staging brings a home to life and
can be the key to creating an emotional
connection in a potential buyer. First
impressions matter most in real estate.
And, since 95 percent of buyers start
their search online, the photography of a
professionally staged home will put your
listing above the competition and draw
higher value prospects. In fact, even in
a hot real estate market — like we have
right now — staged homes typically sold
for more than $40,000 over list price in
CAN’T I SIMPLY RELY ON MY REALTOR
TO HELP ME GET MY HOUSE READY
Yes, however, a Realtor’s expertise is
in selling your home. A home stager’s
expertise is in updating and styling
your home so it’s “sell ready.” The goal
of home staging is to create a believable,
clean, attractive living space that buyers
can envision themselves living in. It’s
been estimated that only 10 percent of
people shopping for a new home have
the vision to see their belongings in
another house. Home staging helps
them make that leap.
I’VE BEEN RESEARCHING AND READING
ABOUT THE SHOWHOMES FRANCHISE. WHY
WOULD I CHOOSE THEM VERSUS ANOTHER
HOME-STAGING PROVIDER IN THE AREA?
For most people, the purchase or
sale of a home represents the largest
investment of a lifetime. This isn’t a time
to do things halfway. Home services are
Showhomes’ core business. They employ
top professional designers to design a
custom plan for each home. Nothing
they do is cookie-cutter, but specific to
your home and your market.
They also own their own furniture
inventory, which they keep fresh and
on-trend. They have a tried-and-true
process that’s been perfected over more
than 25 years and 30,000 homes. They
can work efficiently and have your home
staged to sell — from beginning to end
— in a timely manner.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO STAGE A
HOME, AND IS IT WORTH IT?
Occupied listings in good shape with
appealing furniture may only need a
Showhomes restyle, which is typically 1/3
the cost of a full home staging. With an
average investment of around 0.5-1% of
list price for full home-staging services,
75 percent of sellers saw a 7:1 return. For
example, a $4,000 investment in staging
your home typically returns offers of
over $28,000 above unstaged listings.
And Showhomes offers its clients 100%
financing with no credit check until your
home is sold.
