Although professional staging is a relatively new industry, people have been "fixing up" their homes to sell for decades. These days due to HGTV home buyers have an "expectation" and are willing to pay quite a bit more for a home that is "model home" looking.
What is Home Staging?
Home staging is identifying and highlighting a home’s features in ways that emotionally appeal to potential buyers.
Can I stage my own home?
Home staging can be a do-it-yourself process with the help of home staging guidelines, but professional home stagers’ experience, training, and independent eyes will give you your best chance to impress buyers and stand out from the competition by marketing and packaging your home effectively.
Is it expensive to hire a Certified Professional Home Stager?
KD Staging and Design offer staging services that can fit any budget. For example, do you want to stage your own home? Consider our Home Staging Consultation to help guide you through the process. Not a do-it-yourself (DIY) person or time not on your side? We also offer reasonably priced hands-on staging services that will also fit your budget.
My house doesn’t need to be staged to sell does it?
You’re right. Every house will eventually sell…it’s a matter of when and for how much. Even when your house does sell, it doesn’t mean it sold for the amount (or as quickly) it would have sold for had it been professionally staged. Remember, 52% of seller’s agents reported staging increased the value of homes 1% or more. (2021 NAR Profile of Home Staging).
Can't a potential buyer use their imagination and look past my decor or empty rooms?
Only a mere 10% of home buyers can actually visualize the potential of a home and most of these folks are "investors" or "flippers" who will hammer you on price. In our Consultation walk and talk, I will identify those "price eroding" factors of your home, so that you can do the simple fixes that maximize returns.
