The Value of Staging a Home – Working with a Professional Stager
Working With A Professional Stager
In previous posts, I’ve written about Do It Your Self staging as well as working with an interior decorator. In this post, I’ll provide you with an example of the value a professional stager can provide a seller.
When selling your home you want it to look as presentable as possible. Think of a fancy showroom. It starts off as a blank space. To fill that space pieces are strategically placed to show off each product in the best possible way. Like a retail shopping experience, you want your customer to ooh and awe the whole time they are in your home.
When reaching for top dollar on a home sale my recommendation to home sellers is to hire a professional stager. A professional stager can bring Mount Mauna Kea sized value to a home by making a home as presentable as possible.
A Professional Staging Experience With Mahalo Hale
Valerie Delahaye-Ippolito of Mahalo Hale is a professional stager that I often refer to my Sellers. She has a background in professional set design and a stellar sense of fashion and style that will turn a drab space into wondrously welcoming and usable.
Here’s an example of a listing that Valerie staged for me located at 73-1370 Kinoulu Place. The house had been previously listed with another firm for 6 months. I recommended my Sellers hire Valerie to stage the property so I could take new photos and re-market the property. A week later we had an offer $11,000 OVER asking price!
This room was a blank bedroom with four walls and a floor. Valerie was able to transform this room into a functional and usable space.
Before staging, this room was also a large open room. Valerie transformed the space into a usable craft room giving the space function and purpose in a Buyers mind.
As you can see from the example above, working with a staging professional can provide significant value which will translate into profits for a seller.
