You have decided to sell your home… now what? One of the big questions that we always get from sellers is “should I stage my house?” While it may seem like staging your home is more effort, more money, and stress than it is worth, homes that are staged typically sell for more and sell faster than homes that are not.
Today, we are taking some advice from Linden Creek Home Staging, a Triangle home staging company that services Raleigh, Durham, and Wake Forest. You can see their full blog on the benefits of home staging here but we have highlighted some of our favorite key points below.
To Stage or Not to Stage, That Is the Question
The short answer is to stage! According to the Real Estate Staging Association, staged homes spend 90% less time on the market than un-staged homes. Not only are you saving money by selling your home faster, but you are also taking away some of the headache that comes with selling your home. You know what we are talking about – house cleaning, leaving your home at the drop of a hat, the dreaded price drops, the list goes on. The longer your home sits on the market the harder it is on you, your family, and your wallet. At Pointe Realty Group we want to do everything we can to get your home sold as fast as we can for top dollar, that is where home staging can help.
But Homes are Selling Fast in the Triangle…
This is true. Days on the market are at record lows, however, if you are trying to get the most money for your home, staging can really help. When you stage your home you are more likely to have multiple offers above asking price. This means that you end up with more money in your pocket. According to Realtor.com, staged homes sell for 20% more than non-staged homes.
