FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
(Wisconsin) – April 25, 2018 – Wisconsin’s housing market surpassed last year’s sales record with fewer houses on the market, as homeowners are competing to sell their homes quicker at a higher price. Sellers and agents continue to turn to home staging techniques and storage solutions like PODS to declutter rooms and allow buyers to envision the true potential and value of a home.
According to the Wisconsin Realtors Association, in 2017, 83,168 homes sold versus the 62,810 homes sold in 2012. The buyer’s agents surveyed by the 2017 National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Staging Survey cited that nearly one-third of agents agree home staging increased the dollar value offered between one to five percent compared to similar un-staged homes in the market’s vicinity.
Sellers are also finding staged homes are selling faster, leaving homeowners in limbo between selling a home and moving into their new home. While managing a busy schedule, homeowners are looking for convenient ways to ‘bridge’ the gap between decluttering, sorting, storing and moving their home furnishings from point A to point B.
“PODS containers are the solution to ‘bridge’ the storage gap for customers looking to store their belongings in-between staging and selling their home,” says John Hudson, managing partner of PODS Wisconsin. “By using a PODS container, homeowners can take their time using the PODS ‘bridge’ model to move their home furnishings at their convenience.”
As the peak home buying season quickly approaches, now is the time for residents to begin the decluttering process and prepare for home staging.
“The Wisconsin housing market is booming and people are taking advantage of it. Home staging is helping sellers highlight their home’s strengths, appeal to the largest pool of prospective buyers and move through the market quicker,” explains Hudson. “And PODS is here to streamline the moving and storage process for sellers and buyers.”
