5 Reasons Why You Should Invest In Staging Your Property To Sell

TO SELL YOUR HOME FAST

If you are wanting to sell your home quickly and for the best price possible then staging is definitely one of the easiest and cheapest ways to make it happen. Staging your home ensures that buyers see the property at its very best and can help buyers see what a property can offer. Buyers have the opportunity to see the home without clutter, outdated furniture, and loads of personal items attached to the current owners during open homes and private inspections. Staging creates a great first impression which in turn creates positive emotions and feelings.

STAGING HELPS YOUR HOME STAND OUT

Many home buyers start their property search online and depending on the style of your home, it’s easy for one property to blend into another.  First impressions count and the photos of your property need to stand out from any other.  Particularly when selling a unit or competing with another home in your street.  If buyers don’t like what they see online then it’s likely they will pass on viewing your home in person.

STAGERS ARE SPACE MAKERS

Professional stagers know how to creat space in every room. If your home is on the smaller side staging helps buyers see the space instead of focusing on how small the room is. Staging defines the purpose of each room taking the guesswork out for buyers. A great stager will be able to walk through your home and create a flow that is preferential to most potential buyers. When buyers see space they see their own options and are much less likely to get hung up on the quirkiness, strange layout or a small floor plan which increases their chances of submitting an offer and buying.

STAGERS ARE SPACE MAXIMIZERS

Staging when done well makes the home appear larger. It’s not just about clearing out a room to show the space and make it appear larger – it’s more than that.  It’s about choosing the right sized furniture and then placing it correctly to maximize the space.  The wrong choices or oversized furniture can make the rooms feel cramped.

STAGING LEADS TO HIGHER OFFERS

According to statistics from local home staging companies, staged properties sell for 8-10% higher then unstaged properties. 10% on a $900,000 home is $72,000 to $90,000 and easily covers the cost of having your home staged and all your selling costs.

 

Staging your property to sell definitely makes sense.  Staging will result in a quicker sale and at a higher price and some companies will allow you to pay when the property settles instead of before launching the property to the market.
