Home stagers have the ability to show off your home’s best features. With some paint, some cleaning and decluttering, and some knowledgeable furniture placement, your home will shine above others in the same market.
The goal of home staging is to sell your home faster and for more money. Home stagers can do this because they know what the buyers want and know how to produce those “wants” in your home whether your home is a million dollar mansion or a modest starter home.
How do you know if a stager is a good one? Here are a few tips:
1. The stager knows the market. They know what the buyers in YOUR area want and expect. They stage your home accordingly.
2. If you are asking for more than a consultation (the stager will actually be doing the work in your home), you should be able to see before and after photos. These can be shown by the stager via the Internet or a brochure.
3. Like with many service providers, a great way to find out about a home stager’s experience and expertise is to ask around! If they are good, you will find others that tell you so. A good place to start is with real estate agents in your area.
4. Price does not equal experience and expertise. Once again, be sure that you see photos and ask around. New stagers may be a bit cheaper and have great expertise. Experienced stagers may be more expensive but have less expertise!
No matter who you pick, the stager should be able to transform your home into an incredible, sell-able house!
