Christine Rae, Founder and CEO of Certified Staging Professionals International Business Training Academy, an educational program for home staging consultants, suggests that the payoff of a fast, high paying home sale far outweighs the cost investment required for hiring a professional home stager.
St. Catharines, Ontario – October 12, 2011 – Christine Rae, Christine Rae, Founder and CEO of Certified Staging Professionals International Business Training Academy, recently published a article on her website www.stagingtraining.com informing readers of the specific percentages of return on investment home sellers receive when staging their home for a fast and successful sale. The article, titled “Save Money By Spending Money – Hire a Home Stager” argues that when analyzing the dollars from a business perspective, investing in a home stager is good business and makes all the difference.
Rae writes, “This is not a typical discount or coupon deal. Those in the market to sell their home are in dire straights with today’s saturated market and tightened credit qualifications. With real estate prices and market trends as they are, sellers run a serious risk of suffering a loss at the closing table, after a long 8-12 months (or more!) of trying to sell their home. But it doesn’t have to be that way. By investing a small amount of money, up front, in a professional home staging company, the perceived value of your property increases – driving a faster sale, with a pricing closer to asking.”
“The key to these money saving methods is to put money in the right places; working with a professional will help you do that. How well will your house compete against the property down the street? By staging your home with the help of a professional home stager, buyers will be able to envision their lives within the rooms of your house… Nobody is better with directing these efforts than a home staging professional – particularly one with a business mindset and real estate perspective.
