Which house would you rather buy?
Welcome to the mobile age.
Today’s home buyer has the unique advantage of knowing and seeing practically everything about your house before they walk through the front door. And now with the ipad and its retina display, every detail of your house — the good, the bad, and the ugly — can be seen in vivid detail.
So let’s even the playing field. If you are serious about selling your house, stage it.
Here are the top 3 reasons why:
1. You Will Make More Money
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging investment is 1-3% of the home’s asking price, which generates a return of 8-10%! You can’t deny this fact…the better something looks, the more you think it’s worth, and the more you’re willing to pay.
2. Your Online Photos Will Stand Out From The Competition
According to a National Association of Realtors (NAR) profile of buyers, over 90% of buyers are searching for houses online first, before deciding to visit. Give buyers a reason to want see your house! Have multiple photos of beautifully staged rooms.
3. You Will Sell Your House Faster
2012 statistics gathered by Stagedhomes.com shows that 94% of houses staged by an Accredited Staging Professional sold in 29 days or less, compared to an average of 145 days for houses that were not staged.
