Three Major Elements Affect A Sale - Condition, Location and Price.
78% of a buyer's decision about a house is already made before they
actually see it - based on location and size; working with your
client to make sure they really impact the areas outside and inside
the house which affect first impressions is crucial.A Certified Staging Professional™ can help! Condition:
Staging goes beyond the usual list of
repairs, clutter, decor and packing personal items; these will be
discussed by a CSP™ who has been trained to handle objections the
homeowner may have to getting a home ready for sale. Stagers "kick
it up a notch" - by broadening the appeal of the house to a wide
array of potential buyers at the same time targeting to the most
likely market using lifestyle selling techniques.A stager is a third party who will discuss any challenges to the
condition of the home. The Real Estate agent does not have to risk
losing a listing by pointing out all the work that needs to be done.
They have delegated that job to the stager. Staging impacts the condition of a house; change the condition of
the house you decrease the odds of showings without bids. Attracted
buyers will be impressed by the way the house looksA staged house makes for beautiful photos. Beautiful Photos attract
more buyers to showings; this means more offers and increasing the
opportunity to sell the listing on the first round of marketing.
By enhancing the features of a home
and changing the condition, even slightly overpriced homes have a
better chance for selling at asking price. You are offsetting the
price by increasing the value through the buyers eyes. Staging is
about securing the equity in the property. Staging is not about
inflating the price of a house - a well priced house with staging
reduces the risk of offers being less than what you want.A staged home sells faster and for more money. Real Estate agents
receive maximum commission opportunity by not having to reduce the
price and save money by not having to pay for a second and third
wave in their marketing process. Location:
Stagers don't have magic wands! They
can't relocate the house to a more desirable neighbourhood..
Stagers do create magic with the existing furniture it will give the
competitive edge over the other homes in the area. It is easier to
overlook the area, if the price and condition is excellent. Also:
Real Estate agents who offer staging services as an added value for
the client gain a competitive edge over other agents in their area.
Staged properties sell for more money in a hot market and faster in
a slow one. When marketing to homeowners Real Estate agents can use
staging stats, testimonials, and photos to illustrate they go above
and beyond other agents, with great results! Working with a stager
you have a third party to defer objections to and help convince the
home seller of the value of the service. The stager provides a
detailed consultation, and then completes the work to fully stage
the house. A Real Estate agent will have more time to invest on
other aspects of getting the house sold. Even as busy as you are the
homeowners will feel well taken care of.The Bottom Line! A CSP™ will help solve a huge portion of the everyday challenges a
Real Estate agent has while providing a value added service to stand
out in the industry.
