How home staging increases the value of your home and the net profit you receive — as well as reducing the amount of time it’s on the market. 3 Reasons To Stage A Home Increasing Home Value Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise — home staging absolutely has a positive effect on your home’s final selling price. This isn’t just marketing speak; data has shown time and time again that homes sell for much higher prices when they’ve had proper staging work done. For example, the National Association of Realtors has reported that most homes sell for more than 6% over the asking price when they’ve gone through a staging job, which is usually more than enough to cover the original costs of the job. At IntExt Staging, we’re firsthand witnesses to how much a home staging job can improve a home’s value. We have pages of positive client feedback, and examples from our own work history homes have sold for much higher prices than originally.

We Do It All While it may seem doable to stage and remodel a home yourself, there are many common pitfalls that inexperienced homeowners fall into when hiring contractors or other staging companies to complete work on their homes. The work ultimately costs more time and money than the work is ultimately worth. Doing this work yourself also means either paying for it out of pocket or going through the process of securing financing without knowing when or if you will be able to recoup that investment. By entrusting the process of cleaning, remodeling, inspecting, and staging your home to a professional you can count on top-quality work done at the best possible price.

From interior or exterior staging and design, IntExt Staging has the experience and inventory to stage your client’s home in a way that can dramatically increase its value and decrease it’s time on market. The fact is that home staging is not optional if you want to present a listing that really stands out in today’s extremely competitive real estate markets. But why? Let’s look at the numbers. STAGED HOMES SELL FOR MORE According to industry studies, 40% of buyers surveyed said that high-quality home staging swayed their decision to buy. As professionals, we know most buyers are imagining themselves living in a home when they walk through it. They want to be able to realistically imagine how they will use each space. Eighty-three percent of buyers said that home staging made it easier for them to imagine how they would use each space in the home. According to these same surveys, the most important room for staging is the living room, at 47%. After this, the master bedroom came in at 42%, and 35% of respondents said the kitchen was the room where staging had the most effect. Similar reports also show that 25% of buyers claim that professional staging raised the effective resale value of their homes by as much as 5%. In many cases, that’s enough to completely recoup the cost of marketing. FIND OUT MORE Ask any real estate agent — one of the biggest nightmares in selling homes is finding buyers who are seemingly golden, totally intent on buying the home, until tiny little home maintenance issues start getting under their radar. The buyer starts to have more reservations and more demands as the homeowner scrambles over themselves to address the problems that are evident in the home, and in certain cases, the deal is broken off entirely. When a home goes through the staging process, many of the little cosmetic problems that buyers are often weary of don’t exist — the staging layout shows off the home in the most flattering light possible, and superficial problems such as paint, exterior dirtiness, and so on, are completely taken care of. In the overwhelming majority of jobs we’ve taken in Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, and the surrounding areas, the real estate transaction has gone through without a hitch, because pain points were taken care of before the client had the chance to even see them. over 77% of buyers find it “easier to visualize the property as their future home” when it has been staged HOW HOME STAGING INCREASES YOUR HOME’S VALUE That brings us to the big question — how exactly does home staging improve the value of a home? First, it’s important to consider the meaning of the word “value.” Value isn’t objective — it’s determined by the perception that people have toward the product. The report from the National Association of Realtors states that over 77% of buyers find it “easier to visualize the property as their future home” when it has been staged. If you make one person’s perception of your home more favorable, you increase its value to them, creating a situation where they will be willing to pay more. This means that presentation alone can increase the selling price of your home, even without renovations or repairs.

Here are some other ways home staging directly increases the value of a home: Reducing Maintenance Costs for Buyer: Home staging jobs often involve a light remodel process, involving cosmetic jobs such as painting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning, and landscaping. Most of the benefits here are strictly visual, but they can also have an impact on the durability of your home. An exterior paint job, for example, helps protect your home against the elements. This eliminates costs that the buyer would otherwise have to pay out of pocket, thus increasing the selling price. Structural Renovation Can Fix Flaws: An ambitious home staging job may involve interior renovations, where corrections are made indoors to make your home more livable. They might fix archaic layouts or correct puzzling design decisions made decades ago. This puts your home in a better position than it was before, which results in a value increase. It Shows the True Potential Of Your Home: The meticulous presentation in a home staging job isn’t just for the purpose of looking nice — it actually communicates the true potential of your home, something that is often lost in poor photography or lackluster interior design. Home staging companies arrange things to show exactly how rooms can be used to their maximum potential, and professional photography ensures that nothing is lost in translation.
