Can home staging really help sell your listing faster? A study by the National Association of Realtors® says that it does! According to a National Association of Realtors® (NAR) survey, 2017 Profile of Home Staging 66% of Realtors® noticed a decrease in the amount of time a property was on the market.
Preparing the sellers' home for market includes more that just de-cluttering the home. With nearly 90% of home buyers turning to the internet to start looking for homes it is important to make your photos stand out. Home staging can do just that! Making all the necessary updates and fixes including fresh paint and carpeting, can go a long way towards making a favorable impression on potential buyers. The stagers will help with arranging the furniture, placing artwork on the walls, and accessorizing the rooms. NAR states that 77% of agents said it was easier for their client to visualize themselves in the home. The living room being the most important room to stage, followed by the kitchen, and then the master bedroom. With 38% of agents saying that it positively influences the homes value if the home is decorated with the buyer in mind.
Homes staging does not have to be a piggy bank breaking experience. Sellers spend an average of $1,800 on staging but it can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the type of service you want. But don't let this deter you, buyers' and sellers' agents agreed that staging improves the dollar value by 1 to 5 percent.

"Marisol Lopez is meticulously organized. She would stay late and make sure all her tasks were complete. She always wanted to start fresh the following day. She had a reminder for everything. Every item was done at the same time and day, every week. Her organizational skills even went as far as her staples. The staple needed to be exactly parallel to the top of the paper. She is someone who can complete a task with attention."
