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 with 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 2021 alone.
CAN’T I SIMPLY RELY ON MY REALTOR TO HELP ME GET MY HOUSE READY FOR LISTING?
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.
