If you are about to put your house or apartment on the market you are probably wondering whether or not to stage that property. And you've probably thought, "We'll put it on the market and try it for awhile and see how it goes, then if it doesn't sell, we'll stage".
Well here are some statistics that may just make you re-think...
THE LONGER A HOME STAYS ON THE MARKET, THE FURTHER BELOW LIST PRICE IT DROPS!
- Studies show that homes sold in the first 4 weeks average list price or just over.
- Homes on the market 4 - 12 weeks sell for an average of 5% below list price.
- That can be a loss of $25,000 on an average home (far more than the price of Home Staging).
Those first few days and weeks are your prime opportunity to get the home sold for the greatest profit. Now, more than ever, it's important to 'Wow' potential buyers from the very start. As once the initial 'buzz' is gone, it becomes increasingly difficult to interest people to re-view the property.
Don't leave it to chance. Styling your house to sell is the most cost effective and sensible approach if you want to sell your property fast and for more money!
We use the client's furniture, wherever possible, and add the extras needed to create the WOW.
