Does Real Estate Staging Really Matter?
The Real Estate Market in DFW has had a crazy few years! Homes have sold quicker than ever before, the inventory has been slim, bidding wars intense, but with interest rates a little higher, the metroplex is experiencing a more balanced market between buyers and sellers. With this market change, we have to ask ourselves, what sets our listings apart from others? We have a vast network, extensive marketing, professional listing photos, but we know the biggest difference is staging.
Let’s look at the Statistics…
From the Buyer’s perspective:
Today’s buyers know what they want. Social media has influenced buyers in how they expect their potential home to look. Home staging can make an impact in buyer’s decisions and we have the numbers to prove it.
· 97% of buyers’ agents say staging affects the buyer’s view of the home. (NAR)
· 23% of buyer’s agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between one and five percent, compared to similar unstaged homes on the market.
From the Seller’s perspective:
Staging not only benefits the buyer, but the seller as well. It can greatly decrease the amount of time your home is on the market as well as significantly increasing your profit.
· In a 2021 survey of 4,600 staged properties, 73% sold over list price
What are the benefits?
How are we different?
We recognize the benefit of staging, so much that we offer it for free. We have our own in-house staging team that provides a consult for each of our homeowners. We also have our own inventory that we use at each listing, and we never rely only on homeowner’s décor.
If you are thinking about moving or need more convincing on what staging could do for your home, give us a call or send us a message. We’d love the opportunity to show you our staging transformations and prove just how beneficial our in-house staging services are!
