Why Staging Your Home Can Lead To Big Money

Over the past couple of years, home sales in the Valley have continued to see a huge increase. In fact, home values soared more than 28% in 2021—and it is looking like 2022 will see much of the same type of activity.

When it comes to selling a home, one of the most important factors is making the home welcoming and inviting to anyone entering. Whether it’s someone ready to purchase their first house or a family looking for their forever home, first impressions go a long way. Staging your home can be vital in capturing top dollar when selling your home.

Talia Stennett, co-founder of Spice Up Your Home along with husband, Kerry, feels staging your home for an upcoming sale is probably the best money you can spend.

“Homeowners who go through the staging process can earn more than 10 times what the client spends on the service. Cost depends on the home location, square footage, one-story versus two-story floor plan, and the home’s uniqueness. More than 78% of homes using the staging process get sold faster and at a higher price.” 

Staging can help buyers see the potential of a room and traffic flows.  Plus, empty rooms can actually look smaller than they really are, and staging can help them appear larger. 

Re/Max Alliance Group agent Cathy Carter says that staging can be mutually beneficial for both buyer and seller.

“The home is set up as model-ready, and that can bring in a bigger payday for the seller. The buyer can benefit because they can have an easier time knowing ideal placement for furniture and how a space can be utilized.”  

Many buyers look for homes online and professionally staged homes are eye-catching, encouraging more buyers to consider your property, even before they see it in person.

Often, staging companies will bring in quality furniture and unique pieces to stage a home, as is the case with Stennett and her team at Spice Up Your Home, which offers furniture, rugs, wall art, and accessories in their Chandler store.

However, if a budget doesn’t allow for that, Carter says there are options.  “A staging company can come in and use the owner’s own furniture, which can help cut down on the costs for the sellers,” she says.
