Staging Colorado Springs Homes to Sell a Lifestyle

RESA interview with Shark Tank’s, Barbara Corcoran:

Our goal is to optimize how your home shows and feels to your target buyer demographic. More importantly, how your home looks online.

A buyer makes a decision about your property in the first 90 seconds. Staging your home to “sell a lifestyle” allows the Buyer to see what it would be like to live there.

Buyers want to feel inspired by your home, and will pay a premium to get it.

You benefit from fewer days on the market – and more money at closing.

Benefits of Home Staging

1. Your home will look better to online buyers.

49% of buyers’ agents cited that home staging had an effect on most buyer’s view of the home. Which may explain why currently 38% of sellers’ agents said they stage all sellers’ homes prior to listing them for sale.

2. Staging helps buyers see your home’s potential.

For buyers it is easier to visualize the property as a future home (83 percent), buyers are more willing to walk through a home they viewed online (40 percent), will positively impact the value of the home if it is decorated to the buyers’ tastes (38 percent)

3. Your home will sell for more money.

A 2017 National Association of Realtors survey found that staging can increase the value up to 5-10%. 

Here’s another way to look at your cost for staging: if you were to spend $3000 to stage 5 key rooms of your $500K home, your investment could net you another $22,000 – $47,000.
