Selling Your Home this Spring? Here are the Benefits of Staging Your Home for a Successful Sale
Staging your home is like dressing up for a much-awaited date. Sure, your home may be amazing and have the finest features and materials that money can buy but can most home buyers spot that from first glance?
Staging your home before you sell this spring, lets you highlight the features that you want to stand out. It gives you better marketing and showcases your home into a house that most buyers will want to buy – resulting to a successful sale! Want to know more? Below are further benefits of staging your home.
Home Staging Allows Your Home to Connect to More Buyers
Have you walked into a home and felt that you’d be happy to move in? That’s the feeling that you want potential home buyers to feel when they show up for a viewing! How does home staging accomplish this? It does so by taking away attention from the things that are important only to you and placing emphasis on the things that will appeal to buyers. You may be loving your prized collection of a thousand cups and mugs lining your shelves but a potential buyer may see that as lack of organization and possible lack of ample storage space.
Remember that home buyers are looking for a new home to call their own. You want them to feel that your home is welcoming them. Good home staging helps you strip your home of overly personal details while maintaining a warm vibe. That way, someone who scheduled a viewing won’t feel like he or she is intruding in your life.
Home Staging Can make Your House Feel Larger
Most homes have their fair share of clutter. Products lining the medicine cabinet, drawers, and the sink. Possible stack of mails in the foyer, a stash of coins, and random keys. Food all over the kitchen in ‘neat’ stacks or ‘organized’ mason jars. No matter how nice they look, clutter is still clutter. The bad news is clutter ages a home and makes it look less well-maintained than it actually is. One of the benefits of staging your home is that it keeps clutter away so your home can shine.
Sell Your Home Fast and for a Better Price
People tend to place more value on things that truly appeal to them. For home buyers, a home that makes them feel good and in which they can envision themselves living in is a major deciding factor regarding which home they’ll choose to make an offer for. A sought-out home can have better offers and often sell for more than the asking price.
Is it Worth It to Stage Your Home?
The short answer is yes. Selling your home can be very stressful and can drag on for months if your home wasn’t shown in the best possible light. The benefits of home staging far outweigh the feeling that your home stager is criticizing your décor choices when the stager gives recommendations. Don’t take suggestions personally. Know that it is the home stager’s job to present your property in a way that will appeal to your target market.
