Does Staging Work to Sell Your Home?

by Alan Daniels

Top Colorado Springs RealtorsWe've taken a very close look at the benefits of home staging and have found that using the services of a Colorado Springs Staging Expert provides a huge leg up in the competition.  There has been growing competition in the Colorado Springs Real Estate market so it is definitely worth taking a look at.  I believe in the power of staging from seeing it in some of our listings, but here are some of the key stats to back it up.

  • ASP (Association of Home Staging Professionals) - 95% of ASP staged homes sell on average in a 11 days or less for 17% more.
  • 2013 Homegain Survey - Average ROI (Return on Investment) for staging is 4,590%.  This stat definitely is worth looking at.  Who wouldn't want that kind of return on their dollar?

Our News 5 Appearance on NBC - Home Prices Are Up

by Alan Daniels

Here is the Video showing our appearance on News 5 this summer discussing the positive change in the Colorado Springs Real Estate market.  Some of their stats are off but it will give you an idea of what is going on in the market this year.  Thanks to our client Mark Stanforth for making an appearance on the spot!  Visit this link to see the real stats in the current market.

Colorado Springs Real Estate ExpertsNews 5 contacted us as an Expert to discuss the recent trends in the local real estate market.  I met with them and was excited to share that the market has really improved over the last 6-8 months.  Housing inventory is down by 26% in the Pikes Peak Region from this time last year.  Current inventory has been cut in half from 7,056 to 3,383 from the worst market days in 2007.  This along with an increase in sales and average price of sold homes make for the perfect storm.  We are now in a market where we are beginning to see multiple offers due to the lack of inventory.  Home sellers are getting closer to their asking price and selling quicker.  Interest rates remain a huge benefit for buyers and sellers alike.

Buying a home? - Now is a great time to buy with the historically low interest rates and bottomed out prices.  Interest rates especially!  Interest rates will continue to remain the most important factor on home affordability moving forward.

Selling a home? - Many sellers have been waiting until the right time to sell.  Now may be the time to enter the market with the lack of competition and home affordability from historically low interest rates.
