Why stage your home to sell?
Updated: Dec 30, 2020
As you prepare to sell your home, you’ll be looking for every way to increase the home’s value and ensure a quick sale, all while making life as simple as possible for you and your family. It’s the reason so many homeowners trust a Realtor to sell their home. Just as you may be a professional in your area of expertise, Realtors are trained professionals in guiding you through the selling process. They’ll help get top dollar for your home and push your listing to get it sold in the shortest time possible.
Even with a Realtor, there are still things you can do to help in that selling process. Buyers want to see all of a home. That means they’ll be opening the overused and under organized pantry to see how much storage you really have, browsing your home office to envision a space for their game room, and yes, even pulling out the junk drawer to see if you have soft close drawer slides. Even the most organized areas can use some purging when you’re looking to sell your home.
By enlisting the help of a Home Staging firm like Studio Tatum, you’ll quickly see that it’s well worth the effort. On average, staged homes sell 88% faster and for 20% more than an unstaged home. It’s why so many real estate agents suggest staging your home.
The whole goal with staging is to create a space that buyers can see themselves living. Our trained eye can offer key recommendations of items that need to be edited out of your current living situation, while still making it doable to live in your home and sell it simultaneously. It may seem daunting to envision living with children or pets while juggling your real estate agent’s showing schedule. We can help with that too. By creating a system for storage, you’ll be set for a quick tidy up session that will easily transition your home into a space where your kids were making cookies in the morning, but is ready for potential buyers to view by noon. (Bonus: the freshly baked cookie smell is a fringe benefit for home buyers!)
When you’re ready to sell, schedule a consultation with a Studio Tatum designer. We’ll discuss your needs and build a staging package to fit your specific needs. Sell your home, sell it quick and increase your value...we can help you achieve all of those goals!
