Homes for sale in Walnut Creek – To stage or not to stage

Homes for sale in Walnut Creek, CA sell faster and for higher dollar amounts when they’re properly staged.

Realtors in Walnut Creek, like myself, will sometimes offer home staging as a complimentary service because they know that it will help increase the amount of money they can get for their client, and will draw more potential buyers to the house. Many other realtors will ask that their clients cover the cost, or they will split the cost.

Homes for sale in Walnut Creek that have been professionally staged by a Realtor and staging company are much more inviting and depersonalized than a home that has the family’s possessions and photos all over the walls. The home’s color schemes should be neutral, and a professional staging person should consult with the Realtor in Walnut Creek and determine the best plan and what type of furniture will look best in the property and highlight the properties features. The goal is to open up the property and make it look bigger while helping the potential buyer visualize what the home may look like once they move in.

When staging houses for sale in Walnut Creek CA, a good Walnut Creek Realtor will work closely with their professional stager in which they hire. Staging can be expensive, and its easy to “over do it.” The ultimate goal is to stage the most important rooms to secure more offers, more money and a shorter on market time – without breaking the bank. Staging ranges from $3000 - $6000 or more depending on the size of the home and quality of the furniture used.

Not every single room in the home for sale needs to be staged. With homes for sale in Walnut Creek, typically kitchen, living room and master bedroom and bathroom are staged. The other bedrooms can be left un-staged, if desired.

According to a Real Estate study performed by the National Association of Realtors, 81% of home buyers say that homes for sale in Walnut Creek that are staged make it easier to visualize the property as a future home. 46% of buyers who first view the Walnut Creek home for sale are more likely to walk through the home in person with their Realtor in Walnut Creek. 45% of buyers state that staging the home for sale will positively impact the value of the home if it’s decorated to the buyers’ taste.

Simply the furniture in the homes for sale in Walnut Creek, which will be gone once the home is sold, increase the value of the home. This is why its so important to hire a quality staging company, with true professionals who know what works. The staging company that I have partnered with is led by a former Realtor of twenty years, she is highly experienced in homes for sale in the Walnut Creek and homes for sale in Concord CA.

Having a stager that is also an experienced Realtor in Walnut Creek, CA is a major advantage to obtaining multiple offers over asking and to reducing the days on market.
