Home staging continues to grow in popularity as property prices continue to decline. One of the biggest reasons for this is that home sellers fear they’ll lose their equity when they sell. These homeowners are willing to do whatever it takes to boost the prices they get for their homes.
This includes investing in staging.
A home stager is a light at the end of the tunnel for a desperate homeowner being told constantly by their real estate agent that they need to lower their price to attract buyers.
If a home doesn’t show well, often these price reductions don’t have the desired effect anyway. The house continues to sit on the market, while the anxious seller copes with the lack of interest in his listing and contemplates how much money he’ll lose when the house finally does sell.
An investment in home staging always costs less than another price reduction, which is money right out of the seller’s pocket.
