FALLBROOK — Sold Spaces is proving to sellers and realtors that professional home staging and redesign services boost sales and avoid long market slumps. In fact, professionally staged homes sell for up to two times more and 10 percent higher in any market. In a soft market, where buyers get to choose from large inventories and take advantage of long listing times, staging becomes paramount to sell a property for top dollar.
Most sellers and realtors in Southern California are experiencing the same frustrations with current market conditions. Sellers prepare their homes for sale based on their realtor’s checklist of minor repairs. As time lags on, sellers typically put in more effort to de-clutter and some may even be advised to de-personalize, but neither party truly knows how to maximize the appeal of a property.
Realtors are trained in opening and closing escrows and most do not have professional training in staging and redesign. Thus, there is a vast difference between cleaning up and creating a model-home feel that attracts potential buyers.
Smart sellers are learning that if their home doesn’t make a strong and lasting first impression, they are ultimately helping to sell their competition. Sharp real estate agents already know that providing professional staging as part of their agreement with the seller shows a strong commitment to sell the property for the full asking price.
