The Benefits of Staging your Home
Staging your home has many benefits. Staged homes sell 6%-15% over the asking price, and House staging is affordable and fast. If your house is in disarray and has been on the market for some time, I highly recommend staging it. And here’s why:
Get Higher offers
Highlighting your home’s best features by making a few minor repairs and highlighting those features by properly staging it can increase the value making buyers see your home as more valuable. Staged homes sell on average higher than nonstaged homes.
You only get one first impression. If your house is a mess and cluttered, no matter how tremendous and perfect for the buyer, they may not be able to see anything but the chaos. When we go to the store to buy products, we usually pick the ones with more likable, more organized labeling. Selling your house is no different.
One of the benefits of staging your home is that it can make it seem much more luxurious, clean, and comfortable than it is typically. The magic of home staging tricks potential buyers into thinking their lives will be comfortable, clean, and luxurious if they buy your home.
Make it easier for buyers to envision living in the home.
Depersonalizing your home is vitally important. Buyers need to see themselves living the home as everyone’s home life is a tad different. Some spend most of their time in the kitchen, and others in the living room. When staging your home, think about what potential buyers could do to the space and highlight the key features in each room. For example, big windows in the living room or a large walk-in pantry in the kitchen.
Better for in-person and online viewings
It is becoming more popular to search for houses on your own using real estate websites rather than depending on agents to find them. Staging your home for pictures can make your home look immaculate and inviting for anyone who clicks on its profile. Potential buyers may even refuse to see houses suggested by their agents based on their digital-first impressions.
Less time on the market
Not only will staging your home get you higher offers, but it will also lessen the time it spends on the market. So why not give us a call and we can help you stag your home to sell!
