The weather is hot and so is the real estate market.  This is good news for anyone preparing to put their home on the market.  However, it takes more than just a strong real estate market to sell your home.  Staging your home is one of the most important things homeowners can do if they want to sell their home fast and get top dollar for it.  If that isn’t motivating enough, here are a few other reasons why you should consider staging your home.


Your Home Will Look Fabulous

Many people don’t realize the full potential of their home until it is staged.  Staging allows you to transform your home into something completely new and beautiful.  Rearranging furniture, painting the walls, adding a few nice throw rugs, and complementing with colorful accent pieces can completely change the look and feel of your home.  Once your home is staged, you will be amazed at how gorgeous it looks and you will get to enjoy this beauty for the remainder of your time in the home.


It Gives You a Head Start on Packing

The first thing you will need to do when you stage your home is declutter.  This means you will have to go through and get rid of unwanted stuff and pack up many of your belongings so your home can be organized and clutter free.  When you move you will have to do this anyway, so why not get a head start and do this when you stage your home? 


Your Home Will Sell Faster

No one likes the hassle of showing their home.  You have to keep your home neat and tidy at all times and you have to be prepared to get kicked out at a moment’s notice for a showing.  This can be frustrating and exhausting.   The good news is that studies have found that staged homes spend half the time on the market compared to non-staged homes and 73% less time on the market altogether. 


You Will Get More Money

Home staging is all about showcasing your home’s best features and showing it in its best possible light.  Home staging makes your home appeal to a variety of buyers and most of the time they are willing to pay more money for a home that has been staged.  Surveys have found that staged homes sell for as much as 6% above the asking price. What could be more motivating that making extra money!
