Staging gives a property a competitive advantage. When you use a stager in Naperville, Hinsdale and indeed anywhere in Chicago’s Western Suburbs there are 5 key reasons everyone wins when there’s a home stager on the team prior to listing the property.
1. Let The Stager Be The “Bad Cop”
The relationship between Realtor and seller needs to be one of deep trust. It does not help to have that relationship start off with advice that will feel like criticism, even if it is accurate and well-meaning. A Chicagoland Home Stager knows how to frame these concepts and put them into a constructive, reasonable plan. With the plan in hand, both the real estate agent and homeowner can work together on an action plan, setting priorities based on market conditions and the seller’s budget.
2. Staging Can Saves The Seller $ Thousands
Staging can save money, because home stagers have resources. For example, a new bathroom might cost $20,000 in some neighborhoods, but if the layout is good and the tile neutral, painting the cabinets and changing out the fixtures can go a long way to give the space a fresh appeal.
3. Time: Relisting vs. Listing Right The First Time
Staging can save a home seller the amount of time they’re listed on the market. By positioning the home for the right demographic and displaying it in an attractive, appropriate style, the home is less likely to languish on the market. Staging can show how the flow of the home works and how to optimize the space for family life.
4. Get More Listings
Our staging is always professionally photographed. Since most house hunting begins online, it is very important to entice the buyer right from the beginning with good pictures.
5. Referrals & Marketing Online
We support and amplify the real estate agent’s marketing efforts with our own. We have the same goals – to get more views and a fast sale at a good price. Not only do we always co-brand our featured listings, but we give referrals. Home owners are increasingly calling us first.
