Five Reasons for Chattanooga Realtors to Partner with Arrange Home Staging:
You will get a greater return on your client’s investment! According to the National Association of Realtors, 32% of buyers’ agents report that staged homes increases the dollar value buyers are willing to spend by 1-5% and 16% of agents says it increases the value from 6-10%. What does that mean for a $300,000 home? Taking these numbers, we can assume it means anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000.
Homeowners cannot view their homes objectively; Home Stagers Can Help! Houses lived in two years or more cannot be viewed objectively by the owners. This means that home owners are unable to view what is typically their largest investment as just that; and, therefore, expect the house to sell as is.
The longer your client’s home is on the market, the lower the price falls. So stage first! Why should your listings sit on the market? Staged homes spend less time on the market. In fact, according to the Real Estate Staging Association survey, staged homes spend 72% less time on the market.
Buyers Shop online first. Buyers shop online first and a well-staged home is meant to look great in photos and in person. The National Association of Realtors said 95% of buyers look at online photos of houses before they ever contact realtors.
Only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a home. This is why staging a home is critical! You don’t want the advantages of your client’s home overlooked and left up to the buyer’s imagination. Home stagers create living spaces that others aspire to call home.
