Let’s dive into how real estate investors in Houston and homeowners see a higher profit after staging their investment properties.
You completed your house renovation, and now it’s time to list it with an agent or sell it yourself and sit back, right? Absolutely not!
The first thing to consider is who my competition is. How will the agent market to buyers? How fast will my house sell once it’s on the market? These are vital questions to consider when placing your home on the market for sale. Houston Home Staging is a great way to get the most out of rehab.
It’s critical for Real Estate Investors to connect with the right Agent to get in touch with an agent familiar with the area where the property is located. Ask questions and find out how knowledgeable the Agent is about homes for sale or have sold near your home in the last several months.
Does the agent or agent team have a solid social media presence? Identify with the Agent how the property will market and the targeted buyers. Your Agent should encourage you on the best ways to make your property presentable to potential buyers; for example, pricing the property, staging the home, and the possible length of time to expect the house to sit on the market, if furnished vs. unfurnished.
Benefits Of Home Stagging

According to UpNest, Ninety-five percent of staged homes sell in 11 days or less, which is 87% faster than non-staged homes. They also sell for an average of 17% more, so you could recoup the cost of staging and then some.
Per MARJORIE A. COHEN, in an article on the Investopedia site, “Home staging has become a “must-do” for many sellers, as 82% of buyer’s agents said home staging makes it easier for prospective buyers to visualize the property as a future home. 1 Staged home have also historically sold faster and for more money than those that are not staged”.
Houston Home Staging is an investor-friendly staging and home décor.
Most buyers search the internet to begin their home search and must decide whether to inquire about the property by first seeing the listing pictures. Therefore, it is essential to have the right people to sell your property quickly. Not only are realtors and stagers necessary, but it’s also vital to have the right real estate photographer who can capture the best angles and deliver top-quality pictures.
Top Quality Buyers
Most buyers and their agents are online searching for the best house deal, which is fine. However, when it’s time to sell, your priority is making the most money possible; therefore, you should present top-quality Home Design.
If you spent time and money rehabilitating your property, do you want to risk getting lowball offers by not showcasing what that house has to offer?
If you’re competing with newer-built homes in the area, buyers may ask for a price reduction for multiple reasons. Your home should capture the buyer’s attention from the curbside to the entryway. To start, you need to arrange furniture to make the house look more prominent, warmer, and have a cozy ecstatic.
Investors who run out of money and need to sell fast can negotiate to stage the property and pay the staging company once the property is sold; this is helpful, especially if investors have upcoming loan payments and can avoid lowball offers from potential buyers.
In conclusion, even the most minor repair and décor can yield a greater return than none. You may not be able to stage the entire home, but decorating a few areas, such as the foyer/entryway, living room, and primary bedroom, can help potential buyers gain a better visual of the space and a mental picture of the home.
