Having your home staged may be one of the most important decisions you make as you begin the process of selling your home. It may be tempting to try to sell “as is” but statistics consistently show that staged homes sell more quickly and receive better offers.
Home Staging services have proven to be a successful marketing tool that works for any home regardless of size, style, or location. The home staging professionals at Lemon Tree, Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia and the surrounding areas, will help transform your home into a competitive product giving you the best advantage for a quick sale at a good price.
Why Does Staging Work?
Real Estate professionals know that buying a home is as much an emotional decision as a business decision. When prospective buyers feel an emotional connection to a lovely home they are much more likely to decide to buy.
A staged home suggests that the home has been well cared for and will bring attention to a home’s best attributes while minimizing imperfections. It also can suggest a life style to which buyers aspire.
The home staging professionals at Lemon Tree Staging are skilled in creating a modern and welcoming space that will attract your target audience.
Will Staging REALLY Affect the Sale?
Statistics nationwide attest to the value of staging. We have many clients who tell us they are “amazed” at the difference staging makes. In addition, we have considerable experience staging properties that were sitting, unsold, on the market for months, that sold within days of staging. And if your home has been on the market for a while, staging is always less expensive than your first price reduction.
Staging shortens the sales cycle, which in turn saves you money and moves you closer to your goals.
- Staged homes “spend up to 73% fewer days on the market” – RESA, National Statistics Study, 2011
- “The average staged home is selling at seven days versus 87 to 107 for an un-staged home.” Linda Stern, Ask the Pro, Newsweek
- “When getting ready to sell a home, investing a little money into sprucing it up can result in big dividends in the final price tag. In general, Home Staging could increase the final sale price by 5 per cent to 20 per cent.” Barbara Corcoran, Good Morning America, ABC
- “Sellers should not look at staging by seeing how much it will cost but how much it could make.” Keith Rockmail, Christian Science Monitor
