Take Two Design partners with Seller’s Agents to generate more initial interest in properties, sell homes more quickly, and at a better closing price. This translates into quicker turn-around and higher commissions for you.
According to Home Staging Resource, the facts speak for themselves:
40% of buyers are “more willing to walk through a staged home they saw online”.
Professionally staged homes spend an average 72% LESS time on the market.
Almost a third (29%) of Seller’s Agents believe that staging increased the value of the home 6-20%, and
In a survey of over 3,500 homes professionally staged, over 50% sold for 10% MORE than their unstaged neighbor’s home.
Understanding the Market
There is staging, and… professional Home Staging. A really good Home Stager will “pitch” the staging design right for the target buyer demographic -- there’s a big difference between an interested buyer, and a really excited one. And Take Two Design will look at comps to better differentiate a property, because we understand your business; we also have Real Estate training.
According to NAR, over 95% of buyers look at online photos of a home BEFORE they visit or call an Agent.
Over 77% of buyers find it “easier to visualize the property as their future home” when it’s staged.
Almost a third (27%) of buyers are more willing to “overlook property faults” when the home is staged.
Professional photography has become a necessity to showcase a home online. Good staging will make any property more photogenic; an experienced Home Stager can also make the home stand out from the competition. Take Two Design can help you find the right photographer, too.
Human beings see space in terms of visual reference points, so vacant homes appear smaller, and are harder for a buyer to visualize as their own. Large or small, vacant homes therefore tend to be harder to sell; empty rooms don’t look inviting online, either. Take Two Design turns vacant homes into photogenically furnished ones that buyers can connect with.
Making Your Job Easier
By coaching Sellers and providing them with practical assistance beyond staging, Take Two Design also help shorten time-to-market, thus reducing the time that Realtors have to spend on “hand-holding” and checking on home readiness for sale.
Selling Staging to Your Clients
When Sellers spend an average of 1% of the value of their home on staging, they see, on average, a 1000% return on investment (HSR).
Provided a home is priced right for the market, staging is highly cost-effective for the Seller, so it’s an easy “sell” for the Realtor.
