DO I NEED OCCUPIED HOME STAGING

 

Our occupied home staging service is quite different from vacant staging,

in which furnishings are brought in to design an empty house.

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER OCCUPIED HOME STAGING:

 

IF THE SELLER INTENDS ON LIVING IN THE HOME WHILE IT IS LISTED FOR SALE

If the home is not going to be empty, there is no reason to remove all the furniture and move it to storage while renting other furniture and decor.  Not to mention, most stagers do not offer this as an option for fear of their inventory getting damaged while a family lives in and uses the furnishings. Furthermore, the expense one incurs to rent furniture doesn’t necessarily make sense at every price point with homes listed for sale. Occupied home staging involves using the seller’s furniture, and belongings but making that home look better than it ever has before. Let’s face it, we don’t live the way we sell.

SIMILAR HOMES FOR SALE IN THE AREA

Have you heard that “comparison is the thief of joy”?  Well unfortunately in the real estate world, it is inevitable. With that in mind, a seller wants their property to be the FIRST choice for buyers so they can sell it rapidly and for top dollar. Occupied home staging will cause the home to stand out among its competition in the minds of buyers. Like it or not, when a seller lists their home for sale, they are essentially entering a beauty pageant by which all homes are compared to others that are similar on paper. This comparison is all about which home presents itself the best.

IF YOU NEED TO SELL THE HOME QUICKLY

Aside from pricing a home below the competition, there is no better way to sell the home quickly than to utilize our occupied home staging service. Staged homes sell with thirty percent less time on the market than a non-staged home and are often the object of bidding wars. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE MORE MONEY ON THE SALE OF THE HOME Having the home professionally staged will make you more money – and who doesn’t want that? Staged homes typically sell for more money than comparable non-staged homes. The market tends to control the price of homes dependent upon how long they are on the market. Statistics show that the best chance of getting the asking price, or very close, is when an offer is placed within the first two weeks. If a home remains on the market for a month without an offer, the average selling price drops 5%. On a $250,000 home, that’s $12,500. The cost of staging is well below that of the first price reduction. Even better – because occupied home staging doesn’t require furniture rental, it costs only a fraction of the cost of vacant staging.

A great stager is like a great makeup artist.
