Home Staging Sells Homes Quickly For More Money



Did you know that when you stage your home before listing it for sale, you’re increasing your chances to sell it faster and for more money?

First of all, what is Home Staging? It is the art of using home decor, furniture, and other accessories to give your home a makeover that will make it attractive and appealing to the highest number of potential buyers.

You’ve probably heard this quote "you never get a second chance to make a great first impression" That quote is very true when selling your home.

First impressions are incredibly important because most buyers will generally form their opinions after taking just a few steps into your home. A bad smell, a crooked frame or a lot of clutter here and there may be the difference between whether or not you get an offer.

One of the most important staging tasks is to declutter and depersonalize your home. The moment you decide to sell your home, you have to make that mental shift from seeing it as your home to seeing it as just a house. You have to remove all personal stuff from view because buyers generally don't feel at home in a house with a lot of the sellers' personal items.

They are better able to feel like it's their home if the items are neutral like in a show home. When they walk into a home, they’re thinking beyond what their eyes are seeing, and visualizing themselves living in the home. They ask themselves.... Is this home an ideal place to raise my children? Does this house have what we need to enjoy our retirement? etc

Professional staging helps buyers make an emotional connection with your home and see themselves living in there.

In a study by the National Association or Realtors (NAR), over 50% of listing agents said that home staging increases a home’s sale price by 1%-10% and a study by Maritz Research showed that staged homes sell 79% faster than unstaged homes.

So, if you want your home to sell quickly and for more money, you should seriously consider staging it before listing it for sale.
