Home Staging Companies prepare homes to sell by a certified, trained, professional who specialized in this form of design. A Professional Home Stager has the resources to objectively view the home as a product; highlighting its assets while downplaying the flaws. Most sellers cannot view their homes objectively, and most relators do not have the time nor the resources to properly stage a home.
For a few hundred dollars you can have a detailed report of what you can do to maximize your home value.
Although your home previously sold quickly in a strong market, it doesn’t mean it generated the revenue it would have with the use of a Professional Stager. HSR Certified Professionally Staged Homes sell on an average 10% higher in a good market (see the Latest Home Staging Statistics).
Home sellers usually struggle to successfully stage their own home. Why? Our homes are like our children, we don’t necessarily see its flaws. We become accustomed to the way it looks, and in fact, homeowners fine it difficult emotionally to change the design. Without the ability to view your home objectively, effective marketing and packaging becomes impossible. Plus, most home sellers don't "stage" homes on a regular basis. Thankfully, Geneva Lake Design can provide these services to maximize your return.
Only 10% of home buyers can realistically visualize the potential of a home unless the are investors or flippers who demand major price reductions to make a sale. Our Consultations allow us to walk through the home and identify "price eroding" factors in the spaces, so that you can make simple fixes that maximize returns.
Professionally staging vacant homes is incredibly important. Buyers cannot visualize the size and scale of the space. Fortunately, furniture, artwork and accessories give them a frame of reference for layout and design.
