In order to get top dollar in the sale of your home this spring, you’ve got to make sure it’s staged properly. We’re here with Gina Newell of Premiere Home Stagers to answer some common home staging questions from our sellers.
Beginning in 2008, Gina has been staging both vacant and occupied homes. Based on her experience, staging makes a big difference in the sale of your home, no matter what kind of market you are in. Just because your home sells fast doesn’t mean it will sell as fast or for as much money as it could. even in a hot market like the one in Dane County.
Statistics show that a staged home sells 50% faster and for 10% more money than an unstaged home. Whatever you spend on professional staging services is well worth the cost. No need to worry about the consultation cost because we'll take care of that once you partner with us. See our marketing plan here for details.
Let me go over how the staging process works. First, Gina and her team start with a consultation and based on her report, she'll let you decide what to move and how to position things to appeal to buyers.
Removing your personal items is key.
For vacant stagings, Gina recommends that you stage the main floor at the very least. For occupied homes, they tend to remove most personal items to make the home appealing to anyone who walks through the door.
Remember: you need to make your house appeal to anyone in any demographic. It's easy for you to miss the minor imperfections that the next person will notice because you’ve lived in the home for so long. Removing your personal items is key to helping a prospective buyer envision themselves living in your home.
