Many Central Floridians who are considering listing their house for sale ask the question: “Why should I hire a home staging realtor to list and sell my home?” The fact is, anyone can hire a realtor to list their home, but most realtors have no formal staging experience or they hire a third party to come in and actually do the staging or them. When you decide to hire a staging realtor to list your home, you basically will be getting everything you need in one package. A staging realtor will make sure that prospective buyers can see your house an an “asset” and not just as a “home”. At the same time, they also ensure that the potential home buyers see your house as their “home” and not just as an “asset”. It’s important to have the balance of both scenarios to create the perfect buying and selling conditions that helps you sell your house faster and for more!. Professional home staging makes your house stand out from the other similar houses on the market by creating an inviting space that gives the home buyer the sense of possibility and potential.
Top Reasons to Hire a Staging Realtor
1. Sell For a Higher Price: It’s true, when you choose to stage your home, it will sell for more money. Think of it this way, if your house sits on the market and doesn’t sell, you’re forced to lower the asking price, possibly multiple times. The quicker your home sells, the more money that actually goes into your pocket. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), you can see a potential return of $400 for every $100 that you invest in staging. Compare that to an average non-staged home with a $400,000 asking price that will be reduced by as much as $40,000 to $80,000! That represents a reduction (or a loss) of 10% to 20% from your asking price.
2. Sell Faster: A staged home will sell faster and receive more inquiries than a home that is not staged. It’s a fact. Moving homes quickly and for a higher price benefits everyone. A 2013 study of 170 staged homes valued from between $300,000 to $500,000 revealed that these homes were sold within 22 days on the market. Compare that to the average of 125 days on the market for non-staged homes. Also, according to another NAR study, staging a home for sale reduces the time the home is on the market by one-third to one-half the time!
3. Cost of Staging: The cost of staging your home is variable, dependent on many things. The bottom line is that the cost of staging your home by a professional can mean more money in the bank for you. With your house potentially selling 87% faster than other homes on the market and for 17% more money than average, the proof is in the pudding.
