How a Florida Home Stager’s Experience Can Pay Off
When you put your Florida home on the market, one of the decisions it’s easy to overlook is whether to engage a Floridahome stager. Especially if you know you have a good eye for décor or have experience in the visual arts, it may not seem necessary to call in a heavy-duty home staging pro to get your place in shape to sell.
It’s certainly not a requirement for listing, but using a professional home staging company can be invaluable for a number of practical reasons:
Your home is lived-in
That doesgive it a warm, comfortable feeling, but that’s seldom as saleable as a home that presents itself as open and slightly under-furnished. Prospective Florida buyers react favorably when they can easily picture their own belongings in the living spaces. A Floridahome stager is expert at knowing how to achieve a clean, less lived-in atmosphere with a minimum of disruption.
Save on unnecessary repairs and renovations
Most are necessarily so close to the product (their home) that it’s next to impossible to see it with fresh eyes—the way the prospects will. One of the costly fallouts can be decisions to make repairs and renovations that don’t increase the home’s value by as much as they cost. Some such improvements (like over-painting interior or exterior areas) actually comprise décor choices best left to the future owners. A professional stager has field experience and a good sense for which updates are cost-efficient—and which could be counter-productive.
You stand to earn back more than you spend
Engaging a Florida home stager can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars. That might seem like an iffy decision since you can’t know that it will ultimately pay off…but it’s tempting when you realize that successful pros are in business because of their track record of making Florida houses look great—great enough to become worth more money to buyers!
Using a professional Florida home stager is just one of the ways we create successful home sales. If you are looking to list your Florida home in Port St Lucie, Stuart, Palm City, Hutchinson Island, Jensen Beach, do give me a call to get started!
