Staging your home in a Sellers Market

Seller Tips

Staging your home – even in a seller’s market – is ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด recommended! Although it is a HOT market, staging your house will make it stand out from the others in your price range, and you won’t waste a single opportunity to create a great impression. If you want to sell your home quickly and for the best possible price, staging is one of the easiest ways to make it happen.

Just to drop a few stats, according to the 2021 Profile of Home Staging from the National Association of Realtors:

• 23% of sellers’ agents reported an increase of 1-5% of the dollar value offered by buyers, in comparison to unstaged homes (which means more money in your pocket)

• 82% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home

• According to the Real Estate Staging Association, staged homes sell 73% faster, on average, than their non-staged counterparts

Here’s what else — staging doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated! I’ve listed below a few non-negotiable staging homework items I give to all of my sellers:

โœ“ Declutter and depersonalize everything! Small objects don’t photo well so remove any knick-knacks and any personal items. When it comes to getting your home ready for the market, less is ALWAYS more
โœ“ Deep clean the entire home top-to-bottom like you’ve never cleaned before
โœ“ Focus on Curb appeal – fresh mulch, power washing, new wreaths, and front door mat with a pop of color
โœ“ Add fluffy white towels to the bathrooms, remove bathmats, and add white comforters to all of the beds – this will make the rooms feel larger, and the bathrooms look inviting (and clean)
โœ“ Remove area rugs and curtains
โœ“ Eliminate pet presence (and smells) and get rid of air fresheners! The best scent a home can have is CLEAN

If you’re curious how you can get your home looking its best, send me a message, and let’s chat. I’d love to help you sell quickly and for top dollar!
