There are three things that every homeowner wants to accomplish when selling their home:
- Selling for the highest price
- In the least amount of time
- With the least amount of hassle
Home Staging will play a major role in accomplishing all three of these objectives.
Home Staging by definition is “the act of preparing a private residence prior to going up for sale in the real estate marketplace.”
The goal of staging is to sell a home quickly and for the most money possible by making it appealing to the highest number of potential buyers. Staging focuses on improving a property by transforming it into a welcoming, appealing, and attractive product for sale.
De-cluttering, re-arranging, and replacing furnishings and accessories will play a crucial role in selling a home. It is said that a home that is furnished sells faster than an unfurnished home, especially one decorated with new, clean furnishings and accessories.
Even in the rental market, homes with fresh new furnishings, accents, etc. yield a more frequent and higher priced rental income.
Loon Rustics helps clients in this process. We provide advice, knowledge, and expertise in this area by recommending easy, affordable options that greatly improve a home’s look and feel.
If a home doesn't sell within a certain amount of time, the owner will usually decide to lower the price. This price reduction is usually anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000, maybe even $50,000 to $100,000 after a while. Many times the listing price is reduced without any changes made to the interior, exterior, or structure of the house.
Purchasing a new sofa set, installing new lighting, adding window treatments, or accent pieces, will entice a larger group of buyers leading to a quicker sale for a fraction of the normal first price reduction. Putting $5,000 into staging the home before it is listed is far less expensive than a $20,000 price drop after six months.
We are happy to discuss these ideas at any time. Loon Rustics is staffed with licensed real estate agents to go over the selling process at your convenience, as well as designers specializing in staging. It is our opinion that one should not list their home unless it is properly staged and ready for the market.
