Home staging prepares a home to sell while maximizing the home’s appeal to potential buyers. It can be considered a form of advertising, i.e., the process highlights a home’s positive features while minimizing any negatives. Statistically speaking, Home Staging has proven to be an effective marketing tool to sell a home faster and at top market value.
There are many benefits to sellers to stage their homes. Obtaining the best sales price is one benefit that’s at the top of the list when presenting Home Staging to sellers. Just imagine how the Home Staging process can increase your final sales price. We know that a buyer’s emotions play a big role in their decision to purchase a particular home. Besides, sellers can write off the fees from the Home Staging services as an “Advertising Fee” which can influence a seller’s capital gain or loss on a property that has been sold.
Staged homes look better than non-staged homes in the same price range and neighborhood. In addition, Realtors opt to show staged homes more often because they are normally “move-in” ready. And, buyers recognize that Staged Homes are the best properties to visit when looking for a home. Even when it’s time for an appraisal of the property, Staged Homes appraise at a higher value than similar non-staged homes.
Here are some Home Staging tips you should consider when selling your home:
• Highlight the home’s positive features and detract from all things negative.
• De-personalize your home so that potential buyers can envision living in the house.
• Neutralize the décor to maximize the home’s overall appeal.
• Arrange furniture to create an easy flow, i.e., open space and visual interest.
• Create a sense of calm and warmth.
Each staging project is unique and tailored to fit every client’s budget. The Home Stagers can do as little or as much as you want within your budget and timeframe.
