The Benefits of Home Staging
Be it a slow or a booming housing market, bidding wars can happen when potential buyers feel an emotional attachment to a home. Buyers who feel this connection will want to close the deal. This means that a staged home will sell at a higher price and much quicker than one that isn't staged. What can be more disappointing than not getting full value for your home?!
Professionally Staged Properties:
- Look better than other homes on the market
- Spend 90% less time on the market
- Typically sell for more money
- Attract more online shoppers
- Set the standard for comparison shopping
- Receive more foot traffic
- Are viewed by buyers as well maintained and move-in ready
- Have fewer reasons for buyers to offer less money
- Target the right customer
- Create that WOW! factor
Although price range, location and market conditions are primary influences when selling a home, they are also factors that you cannot change. What you can change however, is how well your home shows. If it shows well, your house will sell before those of your competitors. Statistics show that a well staged home will sell up to 80% faster… at or above the asking price! How? By investing up to 3% (of the asking price) into prepping your property... and home staging plays a small part in that investment.
With the growing popularity of using professional home stagers in the real estate market, it's getting tougher to keep up with one's competition. Realtors would like nothing more than to list a house, sell it quickly, and move on to the next one. Homeowners would like nothing less than to get top dollar for their homes.
FACT : The cost of home staging will be substantially less than the cost of your first price reduction.
With this in mind, can you really afford not to stage your home?

You love your home but have difficulty in viewing it objectively. A professional home stager has the benefit of that first impression. Homeowners need exactly that — after all, it only takes 7 seconds by prospective buyers to determine whether or not they are interested in your home.

We may add some new pieces and transform your home into one that potential buyers can envision themselves living in. Sometimes a refreshed look is all that a home needs in order to sell quickly!
Vacant Home Staging
A vacant house is like a blank canvas, but have you ever taken a tour through one? There's not much to look at except for the obvious flaws and it's difficult to imagine one's own furniture in an empty room. A prospective buyer will become confused, stress over furniture placement, and just walk away. As a seller you'll want them to linger a while… get a feel for the space, and picture themselves living there. Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging will create that 'model home' environment which in turn will attract buyers, who'll fall in love with it, and make you an offer!
Styling for Online Photography
Without professional-looking photos and proper styling, potential home buyers will bypass a listing and move on to the next one. Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging will style your home to perfection, making sure that everything looks just right for your online photos!
