Hello Friends ~
Here in Southeast Michigan we find ourselves in a seller’s market. Inventory is low and there are buyer’s a plenty. For a seller, it’s a wonderful “problem” to have! So why should a seller consider staging their home?
In a seller’s market, home buyers are typically looking at the top end of their budget and won’t have a lot left over to spend to make any improvements or repairs. To entice buyers to fall in love with your home, it is well worth the effort to make it move in ready. Homes that are prepared and staged properly will result in more offers at higher prices.
Regardless, most buyers HATE work – they don’t have the desire, talent, budget or bandwidth to make renovations or repairs (and this includes painting) on their new home. With the popularity of all of the home improvement shows, buyers are more sophisticated and expectations have never been higher.
In a seller’s market, home staging is the ultimate way to showcase your home! Home Staging could make the difference between an offer and multiple offers which may result in more profitability for the seller.
How Home Staging Adds Value in a Seller’s Market:
- A professional stager can help to identify the value in a home. Home Staging uses proven marketing techniques to highlight the home’s best features.
- The goal of home staging is to show the buyer how they can use the space, using furnishings and accessories that are to fresh, current and the proper scale. Creating an emotional reaction and appeal is a large part of home staging which can result in better offers.
- A home stager can communicate and prioritize cost-effective updates/repairs to consider to help overcome buyer objections as well as point out the things that will not likely impact buyer perception.
- A professional home stager will suggest ROI-minded and clever solutions for promoting the space.
