Why Hire a Professional Home Staging Company?
In my opinion, hiring a professional in any industry is the wise way to go about your business.
Here is why you should consider hiring a professional home stager.
Doing it Yourself?
Let's face it - you're not a professional home decorator. You may have things in your home you absolutely love or some kind of wall art you've been hanging onto for years.
They're yours and a potential home buyer may find them ugly or offensive - or simply not their style. Unfortunately home buyers have a difficult time seeing through them.
Kathryn Collins from 3Qi Design explains "...it's critical to understand there are two types of home buyers."
"The first type of buyer is the blind buyer who cannot visualize necessary changes or improvements, and will not take a second look at your home if they weren’t impressed the first time around.
The second type of buyer is the visionary who can see the necessary changes and is willing to make them, but will expect you to reduce the price of the house to compensate for the work they plan to do."
Partner with a Professional Home Stager
When considering the value of your home and a $250 investment for a consultation, it's a small price to pay for potential return on that investment.
" If you decide to stage your own home consider partnering with a staging company that offers you bonus materials with your consultation so that you don’t have to compromise style while saving money. For example, at our firm we include pre-staging checklists, art hanging guides, vignette tip sheets, an open house check list and much more with our comprehensive consultation." says Kathryn
That return could be in the form of a quick sale or a higher selling price - both of which will ease stress and ultimately reach your end game real estate goals.
Staging your home does not mean you're going to be renting a house full of furniture for the duration of your home sale. The level of staging depends on many factors. You also need to consider the statistics of a home that has had staging done vs one that has not.
