What does home staging and William Shakespeare have in common?
When Shakespeare declared that “all the world is a stage” little did he realize that the world of real estate and home staging would grab his metaphor and make it their own.
Home staging, by definition, is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make the home appeal to the highest number of potential buyers – selling a property more swiftly and for more money.
Your home is your home, until you decide to sell it! Then it becomes a marketable product … features, benefits, pluses, minuses and competition … your home needs to look better than any other home in that price range.
Back in 1985, Barb Schwarz pioneered the staging concept and stated that “your investment in home staging will always be less than your first price reduction” – if done appropriately and priced correctly. Her vision of home staging has resulted in staged homes spending 80% less time on the market than non-staged homes.
“Home staging is no longer optional in this real estate market. It’s what will make the difference in whether your home sells or not”, states entrepreneur Barbara Corcoran. “Today, it’s a necessity in selling a house.”
