BENEFITS OF STAGING

Protect your investment
For most people their home is the single biggest investment. Staging before you market your home is crucial to get the best return on your investment. Working with Artisanne Home Staging reduces the bargaining power of buyers because your home’s best features are highlighted while flaws are minimized or fixed.

Staging is effective for both those who use traditional realtor services and for those who have turned to private sales using independent online marketing services.

Your staged home will sell faster
In Ottawa and Gatineau an average of 1,500 homes were bought and sold each month in 2011. The Real Estate Staging Association’s 2010 statistics show that homes staged before they were marketed sold on average in 35 days. This research also looked at un-staged homes that had been taken off the market after 180 days: these homes were re-listed after being professionally staged and sold on average in 60 days. That means they spent on average 67% less time on the market.

Your staged home will sell for more
The National Association of Realtors statistics indicated that staged homes sold for an average of 6.9% to 10% over listing price in 2010. HomeGain’s 2011 Top 10 DIY Home Improvements for Sellers revealed that core staging activities made up the top three in this return on investment analysis: the ROI for cleaning and de-cluttering was 586%, lighten and brighten was 313% and other staging activities were 299%.

Smooth transitions
Selling a house can be stressful. Depending on your time restraints, the to-do list can be overwhelming. Let Artisanne Home Staging help you through the process and simplify your life. You can choose how little or how much work you need us to do depending on your circumstances and budget.

Consider this:

  • Staging reduces the time a property is on the market.
  • Staging helps justify your asking price.
  • Over 50% of buyers will pay a premium for a move-in ready home.
  • 95% of buyers buy on emotion. The WOW factor is essential for that positive first and lasting impression.
  • The investment in staging is always less than the first price reduction
  • A well-maintained home eliminates low offers because perceived value is increased.
