Did you know that 95 percent staged homes sell on average in 11 days or less and for 17 percent more? Did you also know that Templeton Real Estate Group believes so strongly in the importance of staging the homes we sell, that we employ a full-time, accredited staging team? According to a 2015 report by the National Association of Realtors, the median dollar value to stage a home is $675 for each home, but the larger and higher priced homes may cost a lot more. However, with a listing contract, Templeton Real Estate Group offers clients exclusive and custom staging services for free!*

The East Boise real estate market is hot right now, and because of that buyers are forced to make decisions quickly. Houses in Harris Ranch, River Heights, River Run, and all over Northeast and Southeast Boise are in high demand. Appealing to those buyers quickly is of the utmost importance, and home staging is one of the best ways to do it.

Your house should not only look great in person, but also in pictures and video online. Nine in 10 home buyers today rely on the internet as one of their primary research sources, and 52 percent turn to the web as their first step. So, to get buyers into your house, it should be staged and marketed appropriately and professionally to appeal to the 90 percent who will research online first.

In addition to selling faster and for more, staging your home will give you a head start on packing! You have to pack anyway so why not start now? Staging will require you to declutter and pack up personal belongings to allow buyers to imagine themselves living in the house. By “de-personalizing” the house, you help buyers to see the house as a good fit for their family. You don’t want them to see yourfamily living in it. If they see your personal items, such as photos and knick knacks, they’ll have a harder time making a personal connection to the home. By staging the home, you’re making your job easier when it comes time to move!
