Home Staging Asheville“Why can’t I just stage my property myself”?  I’m asked this question a lot and I answer it in two ways:

FIRST:  Between all of the home decorating and home staging shows, as well as the multitude of home staging books on the market, a lot of sellers do try to stage their property on their own. 

But here’s the problem:  With a single click of the mouse, your house can be considered and rejected in just a few seconds. 

We know that the majority of buyers (92%), begin their new home search on the internet, before contacting a Realtor.  In today’s competitive market, a picture can be worth thousands of dollars.

When a buyer is scrolling through hundreds of listings, your house needs to do a lot more than just make a good first impression.  It needs to make a GREAT first impression and it needs to seriously set itself apart from your competition.

A Professional Home Stager will prepare and showcase your home by creating stunning, photogenic rooms that display your home’s strengths, maximizes the perception of square footage, and increase your property’s online and in-home appeal. 

SECOND: 

For most people, your home is your single, largest investment.  Selling it quickly and getting the most money possible at the closing table is important to you.  I compare the decision to hire a home stager versus “doing it yourself”, like this:

Let’s say you need to create your Will. You probably won’t be calling a real estate attorney. You’ll call a lawyer that specializes in estate planning. Similarly, just because you can go online and download a template to “make your own Will”, doesn’t mean you should.

For the big things in life, without hesitation, we turn to professionals. We know that hiring a professional will assure that everything is done the right way, and the investment we make in doing so, is money well spent.
