Posted by Lauren Spencer on Saturday, May 7th, 2011 at 11:01pm.

In this tough real estate market, you need all the advantages you can get in order to sell your home.  Staging is one of the biggest advantages you can give your home.

You’ve heard a lot about staging Santa Cruz homes and it’s usually followed by the words, "I can't afford to hire a professional stager.”  In today’s market you really can't afford not to.  Here are six myths about professionally staging Santa Cruz homes (and the facts behind the myths):

MYTH #1:  I can't afford to hire a professional home stager.

Fact:  Professional home staging is more affordable than you think. The industry has grown tremendously over the past few years, and because of this, the cost of home staging has become competitive.
MYTH #2:  I don't have time to look for someone I can trust.

Fact:  Many real estate agents employ stagers to handle the Santa Cruz homes they list.  There is a fee for this service, but the real estate agent has already done the hiring for you.

MYTH #3:  Only expensive homes get staged.

Fact:  Any home can be staged.  Even the most modest of homes can look like a buyer’s dream home when staged correctly.

MYTH #4:  Why spend the money on staging when I live there.

Fact:  We furnish our homes according to our taste and likes.  To sell your home, you must appeal to as many buyers as possible, and what looks good to us might not look so good to someone else.

MYTH #5:  Staging my home won't make it sell faster.

Fact:  A professionally staged home will sell faster by appealing to more buyers.  The whole purpose of staging is to make your home look like a home the buyer can't wait to live in.

MYTH #6:  All the homes around me look the same; staging isn't going to help.

Fact:  Having your home professionally staged will make it stand out from the competition.  This is exactly the edge you need for buyers to pick your home over the other Santa Cruz homes for sale in your area.
