Containerized Moving and Storage Leader PODS Simplifies Home Staging for Sellers this Summer
Statistics show staged homes sell faster and for a higher price
The National Association of Realtors says that 81 percent of prospective home buyersfind it easier to visualize the property as a future home if it’s staged. 46 percent are more willing to tour a home they viewed online if it has been staged, and 28 percent are more willing to overlook other faults if the home is staged. For hundreds of thousands of home sellers, PODS plays an important role in decluttering and staging. (Source: http://www.realtor.org/reports/2015-profile-of-home-staging)
“PODS simplifies the staging process,” said Matt Tillotson, Marketing Partnership Director at PODS. “Furniture and personal items that need to be removed for staging are loaded just once, at ground level, into our container. Then we keep items offsite at a secure PODS Storage Center during the home selling process.”
With PODS, customers don’t have to load and unload items from a rental truck into a storage facility. When the customer is ready to move into their new home, PODS delivers the container to their new address. It’s an easier, lower-stress way to stage, store, and move, either across town or across the country.
“Staged Homes sell in a quicker amount of time and traditionally for more money,” explains Barb Schwarz, The Creator of Home Staging®, CEO of Staged Homesand Chairwoman and Founder of The International Association of Home Staging Professionals®. According toStaged Homes, currently the average staged home is selling in 11 days or less nationally.
“The data we collect from our ASP® Home Stagers shows that staging increases the value for 95 percent of staged homes by approximately 17 percent,” says Schwarz. “Staging is tax deductible, but price reductions are never tax deductible. And as I always say, ‘The investment of staging in your home is far less than a price reduction on your home.’ That is because home staging works.”
