Des Moines Investment Property Staging

Foreclosures are at record highs all across the country, which has created significant opportunity for real estate investors and prospective home buyers.  With overbuilding in the West Des Monies and Jordan Creek areas, 2000 built or newer homes are available at discounted prices.  Foreclosed homes purchased by real estate investors to be repaired and sold again are reaping the benefits of staged homes.  

Prior to distressed real estate markets, homeowners were able to sell their property without having the home staged fairly easily.  In today’s market, buyers have a lot of choices and obtaining any competitive edge over competition is crucial to success.  Fabstager, a local business owned and operated by Linda Moore in Des Moines, IA has seen a significant spike in business with both primary homeowners and real estate investors.

“Homeowners are seeing the advantages of staging a home professionally to get the edge they need in this tough real estate market” says Linda.  Professional real estate development companies have utilized staging homes for decades, but has been neglected by smaller property owners, due to the cost and ease of selling a home without the benefit of staging.  Times have changed with the bursting of the housing bubble, which has increased the return on investment for homeowners who choose to stage their properties.  

Last year, RESA found in a study that an un-staged home (whether occupied or not), took an average of 9 months to sell while a staged home only took 2 months.  Studies show 84% of buyers preview homes on line, which is a major one reason staging a vacant home is a good idea.  Potential home buyers have nearly unlimited choices with a difficult real estate market, combined with the ease of on-line real estate services and searches.
