You Must Stage! That is, If You Want to Sell Your Washington DC House Fast!

You Must Stage Your House When Trying to Sell Fast and For Top DOLLAR!  I believe it is almost as essential as a home inspection or a proof of funds.

As a seller, you want to make it as easy as possible for potential home buyers to be able to envision themselves and their belongings in the house you’re selling.

I know people are resistant to having to pay money for staging their house but if your goal is to sell your Washington DC house fast and for top dollar, you will pay the little extra to get the returns your are seeking.

The softer the market, the more you must differentiate the property from others crowding the market.

I’ve seen staged homes go into bidding wars because the property looked so much better than everyone else’s? I’ve also seen un-staged houses with the almost identical square footage, condition and nearby location sit on the market for months. Remember,staging is an investment not an expense.  Its a fact, staged houses sit on the market significantly less time than un-staged houses  Home staging can increase your profits in two ways – by increasing value and by reducing expenses (mortgage, taxes, utilities) by decreasing the time the home is on the market.  According to the National Association of Realtors, the longer a house is on the market, the lower the selling price will be.


Most buyers cannot look past a cluttered or unappealing/boring room.  And while most of them start out looking for a home based upon logic, such as, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, office and a finished basement, but buyers end up purchasing based upon an emotional connection they feel when they’re in the home.  When a house feels like home, those same buyers start justifying buying that house even if it doesn’t meet all their logical goals. They may be willing to give up the office because staging has transformed the property into a “pristine dream house” and they can envision themselves living there.  It has to portray a lifestyle they seek.

You Should Stage…Yes, You!

Every home that’s for sale can benefit from the objective eye of a home stager. I recommend seeking a profession but even a friend you trust and who will be brutally honest about your house staging can be you..  Most homeowners are so used to their home’s flaws they don’t see them anymore. Once your home is on the market, it’s a product that needs to be positioned just like any other product on the market.
