Home Staging is the latest “buzz” word in today’s real estate market. Recent statistics by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development show that “a staged house sells, on average, 17% higher than an unstaged house.” Staged homes also spend 50% less time on the market. At LeConte Realty we are excited to provide this service to help you get your property sold quickly and for top dollar. We offer this service to both homeowners and builders.
Our main objective in home staging your property is to set the scene so that buyers can imagine themselves living there. Following are just a few examples of the home staging process that we will guide you through.
Depersonalize & Declutter.
We look at your home with an objective eye and offer advice for removing excessive personal items that can make it difficult for prospective buyers to see past your personal style, deterring a sale. By helping you neutralize your space, it makes it easier for buyers to imagine themselves and their things in your home.
Replacing/ Removing Furniture & Furniture Placement.
We will make suggestions for replacing or removing outdated or worn furniture. With the use of furniture rentals we can easily update your space and create broad appeal for a wide range of buyers. We will show you the best furniture plan for your home. Proper placement of furniture will make your home feel larger and accentuate the positive areas while down playing any possible negatives spaces.
There is nothing more effective than a fresh coat of paint to refresh a space. We will make paint color suggestions that will enliven your home but still be neutral enough to have broad appeal.
These are just a few of the many professional staging services that we have to offer. Andrea Ackermann, our in house Interior Designer, works with your selling agent to identify your target market and stage your home appropriately. With a complete home staging consultation we ensure that buyers will linger longer in your home and be able to connect with the possibilities your property has to offer them, ultimately resulting in a speedy sale for the best price.
“Warm Up” that empty space and get the “Wow” factor:
We will prepare furniture plans for the entire house and estimate furniture rental costs. This estimate will also include area rugs, art and accessories. We will also make suggestions for window treatments. Once a budget is decided upon we will work with you to identify your target market and stage the home appropriately. We will handle all the rental and installations details for you.
Our aim is to accentuate the architecture of the house, not overpower it. We strive to create a clean minimally furnished look where buyers can imagine their things and themselves living there. Most people cannot visualize how an empty space will look furnished, so staging your house will definitely give you an edge on the competition.
Home Staging is an investment not a cost. The cost of home staging is much less than the first price reduction that is needed when your property is on the market too long. We guarantee that with our staging services you will sell fast and for top dollar.
