Should You Hire a Home Stager to Sell Your Luxury Home in Naples?

If you’re selling a luxury home in Naples, your REALTOR® will most likely discuss the importance of home staging with you. Home staging is the process of making your home as appealing as possible to the widest range of prospective buyers; it involves making your space more neutral so everyone who visits can envision themselves living there. But should you hire a home stager or stage the space yourself? This guide explains your options.

Should You Hire a Home Stager to Sell Your Luxury Home in Naples?

On average, staged homes sell faster (and for more money) than their non-staged counterparts do, so whether or not you choose to hire a home stager to sell your luxury home, it’s important that you put some effort into making your house look its best before it hits the market. Your REALTOR can give you tips on how to stage your space, as well as suggest local home staging experts if you intend to hire someone to do it for you.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Professional Home Stager?

The bottom line is that it generally pays to hire a professional home stager. The size of your home and its location will have an impact on what you pay to tap into prospective buyers’ psyches with a perfectly staged house. If you don’t want to hire a stager to complete the entire process, you can instead pay for a consultation with an expert; your expert will give you the guidance you need to boost your home’s appeal. 

Your staging costs will vary depending on whether you need to hire movers to declutter, rent additional furniture or make home improvements.

Pros of Hiring a Professional Home Stager

Hiring a professional to stage your luxury home in Naples comes with several benefits, including:

  • Expert guidance on making your home more appealing to prospective buyers
  • An impartial third-party helping you make the right decisions about staging your home
  • Higher offers on your home

What’s the ROI for Home Staging?

Generally, offers increase by up to 10 percent with a staged home. Though your mileage may vary – and the amount you bring in as profit depends on whether you hire a professional or stage your home yourself – that means it’s always worth putting the effort into your home. 

What Rooms Are Most Important for Home Staging?

The most important rooms to stage are those that prospective buyers spend the most time in; that means the kitchen, living room and master suite should be at the top of your priority list. (Many people settle in the kitchen to discuss what they like and dislike about the home with their own REALTORs on home tours, so keep that in mind.)
