Home Staging – How to sell your home faster and for more money

Home staging, the  science of presenting a home before listing on the market, may be new to Singapore but offers proven results.

The National Association of Realtors in USA reports, “The average staging investment is between 1-3% of the home’s asking price, which generates a return of 8-10%!”   Its survey also discovered that the longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops. Homes that sold in the first 4 weeks averaged 1% more than the list price; 4 to 12 weeks averaged 5% less; 13 to 24 weeks averaged 6.4% less than list price; and 24 weeks averaged more than 10% less than the list price.

If you are planning to sell or even rent out your property, entrust a good home staging professional to recreate that showroom feel, by de-cluttering and re-organising  for potential viewers to maximise yield.  It’s difficult to remain objective about your own environment.

Below are some basics that you can try out on your own suggests Georgina, a certified Realty Advisor with property agency, Vestor Realty in Singapore.
