When a home goes on the market, the objective is that someone will discover it and decide to make it their "Dream Home". What exactly it is that makes a person, couple or family feel a strong attraction to the home doesn't matter. However, what does matter is that it happens; in a reasonable period of time and that it results in a favorable offer.

In today's real estate market, professionally staging one's home has become an essential part of the pre-marketing phase. Statistics continue to prove that a well-staged home sells in up to 50% less time, and for up to 6.9% higher price than one that is vacant, or poorly furnished.

So, it stands to reason that agents who begin showing a listing without first seeing that it is properly staged, they are doing a disservice to the seller. They are turning the odds against the possibility of getting the most successful and timely sale for your property.

If you are ready to sell your home, contact Marie Little. Not only can she stage your home, but Marie can list and sell it too!

In case you aren't yet convinced that you need to stage your home before putting it on the market, here are some things to think about that will hopefully change your mind.

 Returns you can expect from the time and money spent for a well-staged home:

  • 1. A successful Broker's Preview- agents will be bring their buyers and spread the word about your home to other agents.
  • 2. Open Houses - Buyers tend to spend more time, show more interest, ask questions, come back again; sometimes with their agent.
  • 3. An edge over the competition - Your home will stand apart from the vacant or poorly furnished property.
  • 4. MLS photos or virtual tour will attract more perspective buyers to view home.
  • 5. Marketing pieces will make much more of a visual impact.
  • 6. Greater perceived value in home will result in favorable offers.
  • 7. Home Inspectors tend to view property as well maintained.
