Are you planning to sell your home in the Austin area that needs home staging? Many of today’s buyers in the Austin area are looking for move-in ready homes. Maritz Research Staging poll shows that 63 percent of buyers are willing to pay more for move-in ready homes. So why not get your home ready to attract its new owner?
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) your home may sell for up to 17% more money if it is staged professionally. According to the report, 62% of the seller’s agent said that staging a home decreases the amount of time the home spends on the market. One of the best ways to get your home to stand out amongst the competition is to have your home staged.
Most home sellers and the best real estate agents know home staging in important. The problem is it is expensive and most sellers and Realtors don’t want to pay the staging fee. For an average sized home in the Austin area, it will cost over $1,400 for the first month and close to $1,000 every month after that. Many Realtors in the Austin area will leave it up to you as the seller to pay the rental fee if your home needs staging furniture.
We are an independent brokerage and boutique real estate firm, which means we do not pay any franchise fees to be associated with a large real estate brokerage. In our experience those fees do not help our clients get their homes sold. Instead, we have spent that money on home staging furniture and marketing materials that brings value to our clients. At Kopa Real Estate, we have seen how important home staging is and we know most of our clients are not able to pay the rental fee we purchased a large inventory of high quality staging furniture and accessories our clients are able to use for free. When you hire Kopa Real Estate to sell your home not only do you get a home staging consultation but a free furniture rental as well. That’s a huge benefit compared to any of the other average real estate agents in the area.
