Real estate staging is no longer a considered a “nice to have”, but a statistically proven tool to have homes sell for the most money in the least amount of time. According to a recent Zillow Digs survey of real estate agents and interior designers, hiring a professional home stager was listed as one of the top two critical improvements a seller should invest in when selling their home in 2014. (Curb appeal was listed as the number one home improvement item.)
A minimal investment by you can result in a return investment of thousands of dollars!
When is the BEST Time to Stage your Home?
A loose rule of thumb on the best time to consider having your home professionally staged is two months before your home goes on the market, especially if you are a ” do-it-yourself” type of person. Moving is considered one of the most stressful times in a person’s life and if your staging consultation includes recommendations for painting and repairs the last thing you want is to heap more stress on yourself with aggressive time constraints to “get it done”.
With all of that being said . . . I have staged a home from beginning to end in a week! My soup-to-nuts services can include providing paint contractors, repair/handy man services, moving/rearranging furniture, buying and/or renting artwork, furniture and accessories.
If you’re moving (or considering moving), contact me here. I’d love to get you started with a plan that will put more money in your pockets!
Until the next time ~
