Curbio Staging Has Expanded. Why You Need It Now
Anyone in the real estate industry can tell you that looks matter. And a house that doesn’t look good will not sell as quickly as one that does. Too much clutter, dated furniture, tacky décor, and empty rooms can all kill the look of a listing. Even those with the most desirable of home layouts or updated features may sit on the market if it is not staged. While a lot can detract from the listing, staging can take a home from out-of-style or ordinary to modern and extraordinary.
Staging for Your Business
If you don’t regularly get your listings staged, you should start sooner rather than later. Not only will the home look its best after being staged, but also it may help you ultimately make the sale.
According to a survey from the National Association of REALTORS®, 81% of buyers said that staging made it easier for them to visualize the property as their future home.1 Staging may have numerous other benefits as well. Curbio found that some agents believe staged homes sell for more, sell faster, sell over the asking price, get more bids, or have better showings.2 All these benefits can lead to one happy homeowner and a referral for life for you.
With 67% of potential buyers saying they only consider homes with updated features and layouts, staging is becoming more and more of a necessity for every listing rather than another item on the wish list.2
The issue for some is finding the funds to pay for it. Staging may cost upwards of $2,000 per home, and many homeowners can be hesitant to dish out this cash. Because staging is so important, some agents are taking the matter into their own hands with 23% saying they have paid for staging on behalf of their clients before. But over time, this cost can become a lot to bear.
Curbio Offers Staging in New Markets
With professional staging services that eliminate upfront costs, Curbio makes staging more accessible for agents and homeowners. Real estate agents and their clients no longer need to worry about finding the upfront funds to cover this cost. Instead, the price will simply be taken out at closing or payment needs to be made within 12 months of signing the contract if the house doesn’t sell. Agents can rest easy knowing the house looks its best for buyers without worrying about the steep upfront costs. To help more agents stage their listings, Curbio has also recently expanded this service to new areas across the United States.
Curbio now offers in-house staging in the following major cities and their surrounding areas:
If you are not in one of these markets, do not fret. Curbio still offers staging in its other markets but just for a small administrative fee. To get started with staging or to see what other type of pre-sale updates your listing may benefit from, fill out Curbio’s free estimate form.
