Home Staging Sells Homes!
Are you thinking of selling your home? Do you already have it on the market? Have you considered using a home stager? You may have a lovely home and may have stylish furnishings, however that may not be enough. A professional home stager knows the current trends in color, design and style. Staging your home can make a difference in whether or not you sell your home and for how much!
My friend Shar Sitter is a Home Stager in Minnesota. In this story she shares the success of her sellers. Their home was on the market for 330 DAYS. After the transformation, the home SOLD 5 DAYS LATER! The before and after photographs below really tell the story.
Next week I will be sharing another whole house transformation. Shar will focus on one room each day, beginning on Monday, July 18th.
330 Days on the Market then.......Home Staging in St. Paul MN sells it 5 Days later!!
Yes, approximately 330 days on the market and then a home stager was brought in. What a transformation. This house is magnificant and because of that the owner thought the bones of the home alone would sell it.
As you can see it had very dated grey carpet and very cold grey paint. It did nothing for the architectural features of this 1928 house. The owner listened to the advise and pulled up the carpet, refinished the floors (STUNNING) and repainted the cold walls. As you can see this alone was a HUGE improvement.
The owner also listened to the home stager's advice and brought in fresh furnishings to replace the very tired limited furniture. This really created a "WOW" factor and showed the home at its full potential.
Yes, the owner did invest some money to do this but it paid off. Not only were they thrilled with the results but they got an offer 5 days later.
Home Staging is important any time in the process but before the home is ever listed is the best. This home is almost 6000 sq. ft so although they spent some money to update it, if they had done it from the beginning they may have saved 11 months of carrying costs such as heat, electricity, and insurance ; not to mention the daily trips to the home to check on it.
At the second Realtor Open for the 'unveiling' of the new and improved home , Realtor's mouths literally dropped for those that had seen it before. The purchase agreement says it all.
