What is Home Staging? Home Staging is the art of making your property (the stage) appeal to the largest group of buyers (your audience), so that you can sell faster and get top dollar for your property. Buyers need to walk in to the property and envision themselves and their family living there; not feel that they are invading your space. Once you put your property up for sale, you now have a product to market, and a professional home stager will make your product stand head and shoulders above the rest!
Staging has been proven to reduce a property’s days on market by as much as 78%.
It is important to remember that your investment in Home Staging will always be less than your first price reduction, so make the investment upfront to get the big payoff at the end.
The investment in staging a home before listing a property on the market has been proven to not only significantly reduce a property’s time on the market, but it can also result in a higher sale price than competing un-staged properties.
When you hire Grande Properties to stage your property, we make the process easy. Before staging, we will take detailed photos and measurements and create a customized layout plan that will best showcase the property. We then source, deliver, and install all rental furniture, art, and accessories, where needed, and will remove all of the items after the house is sold.
On average, it takes two to three days to stage a property measuring up to 2,500 sq. ft.
Your home staging investment (includes sourcing items, staging time, any rental of furniture, art, and accessories, removal after sale, all tax and delivery charges) will average 1% or less of the selling price if your property is occupied, depending on property size, location, features, and condition. Vacant homes average 1-2% of the property value depending on several factors, including square footage, expected sales price, and the design plan.
Note that your investment in home staging services may be a tax-deductible selling expense.
