Whether you are in a buyer’s or seller’s market, you want to make sure you stage the home if you are going to sell. Even when you have a lot of potential buyers competing for a property, staging has the potential to make a difference. Why is staging your home so important and worth the time and effort it takes? Check out some of the biggest benefits below.
Increase the Perceived Value
When people see a clean, properly staged home, it often looks like the value of the property is higher than the asking price. This is because you are highlighting the best parts of the property and minimizing any negatives. Simple things like decluttering and changing up the window treatments, along with adding some new paint can do the trick nicely. Putting in some work here could help you get a better price for your property.
Help Buyers Connect
You don’t want a home that’s filled with other people’s belongings, as this tends to take the buyers out of the mood to buy. It can be hard for them to picture themselves living at the home when there are so many photos of you and your family. Proper staging that removes the personality of the seller tends to work well. The simplicity can make it easier for buyers to connect with the property.
On the other hand, you don’t want an entirely empty space either. Staging should provide a sleek and clean look to the property, so people can picture themselves living there.
You Get Good Photos and Video Walkthroughs
One of the “hidden” benefits that comes from staging the home will be the photos that you can take once it has been staged. You could then use those photos and videos on your site. These should replace any other photos on the site that haven’t been staged. These new images can show off the property in a better light, sometimes quite literally.
These are just some of the reasons you will want to take the time to stage your property when you are selling. If you have a home that you would like to sell, don’t try to do it on your own.
