selling your home, first impressions are everything. In many cases, a buyer’s first
glance at a property can potentially mean the difference between making
an offer and moving on to other options. While a property may have excellent
potential and be in a great neighborhood, if its appearance in listings
and photographs is lackluster, its chances of selling can be slim. This
is why home staging is so important.
Home staging is the practice of preparing a home for market by making it
look appealing, thereby increasing its appeal to the highest number of
potential buyers. Home staging techniques focus on improving a property’s
aesthetic appeal through the strategic use of lighting, accessories, painting,
artwork, furniture groupings, and complimentary colors, allowing stagers
to transform a property into an enticing space that anyone might want.
Home stagers typically do the following to prepare a home for sale:
- Examining your home from top to bottom
- Highlighting your home’s best features and hiding shortcomings
- Recommending items and furniture to keep in the house and those which should
be removed prior to an open house or showing
- Arranging recommended repairs or work
- Bringing in furniture and other accessories
- Adding finishing touches
In some cases, proper home staging can be used to make a space look 200-300
square feet larger, exposing a property’s potential and drawing
higher offers. In fact,
research has shown that home staging can reduce a listing’s time on the market by one
third to one half, and could fetch as much as 6% to 20% more than an empty
or improperly staged home.
