April 2011 Spotlight: N-Side-Out Home Staging, Kimberly Hill owner and operator

Home Staging is the decluttering, depersonalizing and rethinking of how your home will present on the market. It is a proven method that most realtors will now suggest and most potential buyers are now expecting. The main goal of Staging is to appeal to every potential buyer by having the home in " turn-key " order. By doing this the buyer has much less opportunity to find fault in the home therefore increasing your selling power without having to compromise your asking price.

Staging is an investment that helps to sell your home. Staging and price have to be in balance to attract a buyer. Presentation is just as important as price. Based on national statistics and average price reductions we can calculate the measurable return on the investment of staging. The National Association for Realtors stated that the average price reduction is 10-20% of the list price. By having your home priced at market value along with staging the odds of such a drastic price reduction are markedly decreased.

By staging your home you also decrease the time spent on the market. Stats show that 94.6% of ASP Staged homes sell on an average of 35 days or less verses non-staged homes that are on the market an average of 175 days. Investments such as painting, home repairs, landscaping and staging all have a greater than 90% return.

Home Staging is not only for persons looking to sell but also for those who desire a better flow and organization of their current home. A fresh point of view to help rethink your living space and new organizational methods that will cut clutter and provide a more functional home which in turn decrease stress and saves time.
