Staged Homes are selling Faster!

Staged Homes are selling Faster! FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 29, 2014 - ISLAMORADA, Fla. -- Per Jan Keller, Top Producing Real Estate Agent for Coldwell Banker Schmit: “Just twenty years ago, it was enough to scrub down a home, giving it a good spring cleaning, and hiding the kitty litter box. With a deep cleaning came enough of an impression to woo buyers and sell your home without having to put much into the preparation. Times have changed and any real estate professional will tell you that other than location and price, impression matters the most. Because we live in a world where information is readily available, image means everything. Buyers want to see a home in its best condition before even considering stepping foot inside the property. It’s not uncommon to have a pre-listing inspection done to identify necessary fixes and improvements. However, this usually only goes to functionality, and not to aesthetics, and that’s missing a huge piece of the puzzle. Cost versus Return Most homeowners reject the idea of staging because they only see the cost involved; but, when the return is factored-in, that significantly changes the dynamic. The numbers are quite convincing, as a professionally staged home sees an average of a $1,780 price increase or a 586 percent ROI. Of all professionally staged homes, a full 95 percent sell in just 11 days or less. What’s more, these professionally staged properties sell for an average of 17 percent more than non-staged homes.
