Ready-Set-Sell!

According to the National Association of Realtors, 95% of homes that are staged by professional home stagers sell, on average, in 35 days or less.

According to Realtor.com, the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is rated as the nation’s hottest housing market.  Newhomesource.com states that there are approximately 370 builders with more than 850 new communities across Dallas and Fort Worth combined.  That gives buyers lots to choose from but it can make it difficult for an individual seller to compete with builders who showcase modern floor plans and upgraded amenities in brand new homes.  To contend, you must turn your “previously loved” home into a show-ready property.  

This can be achieved through home staging, however, this is not necessarily a “do it yourself” project.  As home owners, we develop emotional attachments to our homes, décor and personal belongings, but the goal of staging is for the home to stop representing you and start speaking to potential buyers.  Therefore, having an objective home stager is the best solution to achieving a clutter-free, neutrally decorated space that is appealing to buyers and allows them to visualize the property as their future home.   

Additionally, staged homes show better in photographs, which is important since approximately 90% of buyers start their home searches online.  

Home staging can be achieved without a huge investment and often times, your current furniture and décor can be utilized to assist with staging goals.  The median cost spent to stage a home is $675.  This is well worth the investment considering statistics published in a January 2015 survey indicate that realtors for buyers reported that staging has numerous positive impacts, including:

  • 81% said staging helped buyers visualize the property as their future home;
  • 46% said it made buyers more willing to walk through a home they viewed online; and,
  • 45% said that a home staged and decorated had a positive impact to the home’s value, while 10% said a home decorated against a buyer’s tastes negatively impacted the home’s value.  

Remember, the goal of home staging is to make your home speak to buyers in a compelling and positive way and to highlight the features of the home.  At Lifestyle Concierge, we can assist with your home staging needs by providing a neutral and objective viewpoint to create a space that welcomes buyers and encourages them to envision your property as their future home.
