It is always exciting when we get a call that one of our Naperville home staging projects is under contract! This one was particularly so since it had been on the market for over a year prior to staging and immediately went under contract with multiple offers. What was the difference? Staging – one of the best forms of marketing a home for sale.
A Naperville home staging success story.
The difference in this Naperville home is clear in the before and after photos. One of the most dramatic changes was simply bringing the fireplace out of hiding.
Home buyers are buying a dream. They want to feel like this life will be better than the one they are moving from. Chicagoland Home Staging can create that dream in any home.
They say pictures say a thousand words. What this photo says, that the previous one didn’t is that this home could be a model home. The features and benefits of the home are crystal clear, including the stone fireplace. Everything feels new and fresh and even more importantly, it feels more expensive.
Home staging statistics aren’t a fluke.
From time to time we’ll hear that it wasn’t the staging, it was just luck. Multiple offers after a year of non-activity clearly indicate that staging made a difference in buyer perception. Unfortunately things don’t always go exactly as planned and as it happened the winning offer actually fell through and the home went back on the market.
The good news is that yet another offer came in within two weeks and this time, everything went through smoothly. The home has since closed, showing that home staging made the home consistently desirable to potential home buyers.
