Do you want to ensure your home sells fast and for top dollar?
When you get ready to put your home on the market for sale, it becomes a product. To sell quickly and for the highest price possible, it needs to stand out from the competition in the marketplace and be presented in a visually pleasing way so that buyers can envision themselves living there. A staged home also sends a message to buyers that it is a move-in ready, well cared-for home. Homes needing fewer repairs and cosmetic changes sell closer to asking price than their competition. In fact, 88% of ASP Staged Homes sell at or above list price and staged homes sell on average in 10 days vs. 85 days for non-staged homes.
"Buyers only know what they see,
not the way it's going to be."
- Barb Schwarz, ASPM®, The Creator of Home Staging®
Generally, when buyers arrive to view a property, they have already established that it meets their criteria. However, some buyers will not even get out of the car just because of the impression made by the outside. A staged house has an inviting curb appeal, creates a series of great impressions and sense of comfort throughout the home, motivating the buyers to linger in each room and imagine themselves living there. The feeling to convey to buyers is de-personalized and de-cluttered, so the potential buyer can see the house and it's features, not the homeowner's personal "stuff".
Lisa understands that it's difficult for most homeowners to make changes when selling their home. Attachments to personal belongings, collections, favorite colors and furniture make it hard to be objective and look at your home through the eyes of a buyer. With her training as an Accredited Staging Professional® and her proven set of professional staging guidelines, Lisa will work within your budget and time frame to help you prepare your home for sale and appeal to the most buyers possible.
