HERE IS THE PROOF!!
The biggest mistake is home owners are not using the services of a Home Stager. Oh, sure their home might look so so. But it’s like apples and oranges. Home Staging will get a seller 5 to 10% more and a faster sale.
How do we know?
We are the founders of Home Staging in 1997. We have the proof with personal experiences after staging and selling over 550 homes in an average of 18 days. Many of these homes had been on the market with other Realtors. Some were on the market up to one year. We relisted the homes and staged them and things changed very fast. An 18 days average sales time and we never reduced the price. No one knew what home staging was. We have so many stories.
Staging Success Stories
Staging Story #1 One home owner wanted to remodel their kitchen and spend $30,000. We said no. We staged the home and it sold with multiple offers.
Staging Story #2 A funny one was a home owner came home after stopping for a drink with friends when she came into her home, she thought she was in the wrong house . We had staged it while she was at work.
Staging Story #3 We put a vacant home on the market and a few agents showed it before we staged it. After we staged it the same agents had gone back and called us and said “What did you do to this place its looks so much better”
Staging Story #4 We got a call from a home owner who was wanting to sell. They told us that they wanted to complete a to do list before we came over. We told them we should come over now. After we did we cut their to do list down to a few things. They saved time and money we staged it and it sold for more than they asked for. This has been a problem with many home owners. They over improve and spend unnecessary money.
We still get calls from agents wanting to know if we have any new listings coming up because they love to show our listings.
We have helped home owners cut their to do list down to very small tasks. Many home owners are doing too much improvement and are spending unnecessary time and money. We help them with this when we visit the home.
Now time has gone by. Since then after Ginger wrote the book “The Art of Home Staging” many stagers have read he book and have started a staging business. And time has given proof with surveys that the National Association of Realtors have done. Which we knew from our own experience in the beginning.
Below is the results from the surveys by the National association of Realtors and Zillow
