Andrew Duncan, Tampa Bay's #1 Realtor and Expert, talks to Linda Saavedra of Showhomes and Arnie and David Diaz from Waterstone Mortgage about the reasons why home sellers choose not to have their homes staged on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show on 970 WFLA.

Arnie starts off by asking what the common objections they get from home sellers why they don't want to have their home staged.

Linda explains that people think that it's a cost without a return of investment but she further adds that staging actually has the highest ROI next to cleaning and decluttering. Another reason is because people are generally emotionally attached to their home and their stuff. They don't see what buyers see.

Andrew shares a personal experience he had with a client from 2 years ago. He recommended to have their home staged by Showhomes but they chose to do it themselves but they ended up working with another staging company. When he came to the reveal, he saw the big 6-foot tall statue of Rocky Balboa in the living area! It just didn't fit. It's a perfect example of how these things could take away the attention of buyers from the home. Instead of the buyer paying attention to the home and see the Wow factor, their attention will be focused on the seller's things. People have an attachment to their stuff and think that other people would also be interested in them when in reality, they are NOT buying the stuff inside the house...they are buying the house.

The home should appeal to the masses. It's important to depersonalize and make it feel like a model home.

Andrew recommends to have your home staged. It will not be a waste of money. In fact, it will help them do a better job and get your home sold fast and for top dollar!
