Realtor Lisa Culp Taylor discusses staging in her blog.
“Many sellers balk at the idea of hiring a stager for their home prior to listing,” she shared. “They think it’s too expensive, too much work and they like their décor as is. I recently worked with a client whose home had been on the market for several months with another Realtor. When her original listing expired, she contacted me and asked me for a consult. Her home had great bones, but she was selling due to a recent divorce. To complicate matters, her ex-husband had moved with much of her former furniture. She was, understandably, worried about the cost, but quickly realized that four months’ worth of mortgage payments was significantly more expensive than hiring a stager. So, she took the plunge. Her home sold four days after the staging was complete.”
“Now, if this were a print advertisement, I’d have to include an asterisk to say that those results are not typical of all staging stories, but you know what? It’s not that unusual either. When selling a home, there are a lot of considerations, staging being just one of them. There is also conflicting information about how effective staging really is in the sale of a home. Sometimes an experienced real estate agent can make recommendations that a homeowner can do on his or her own and spare the homeowner the cost of hiring a stager. But when considering the cost of the first price reduction when a house does not sell, it makes sense to at least ask the question of whether a fresh eye and designer’s touch could be the key to a quicker sale and therefore worth considering.”
A Professional Home Stager is trained to find the home’s selling points and redesign a room around that to impress buyers immediately.
