What is Professional HomeStaging?
When it comes to purchasing a home First Impressions are everything. A potential buyer will decide if they want to enter a home based on the outside appearance and once inside, a buyer will make up their mind in about 10 seconds if they love your home and want to purchase it.
The most important thing to remember when you are putting your home on the market is that you have to look at it objectively and think about it from the viewpoint of a potential buyer, you have to emotionally detach yourself from thinking of it as your family home and instead think of it as one of your biggest assets. When you use Home Staging as part of your marketing strategy your home will:
- Attract more interest with Realtors and potential buyers.
- Be viewed by Buyers as a Well Maintained Home.
- Sell Faster and increase the possibility of multiple offers.
- Appear better in marketing photos.
Home Staging presents your home in the best possible light, a place where a potential buyer can visualize themselves living. Realtors know this is a critical step in getting the Offers.
Some buyers won’t have the money or the desire to address repairs, paint rooms etc., and buyers sometimes find it hard to look past the decor and personal items in a home in order to imagine themselves living there. Home Staging gives your home that “Move In Ready” appearance that buyers are looking for.
A Home Stager will look at your property through a buyer’s eyes, advising you on what you need to do to make your home appealing to a wide variety of potential buyers.
A staged home demonstrates that you are a Savvy Home Seller, marketing a home that is move in ready and appealing to potential buyers. A home that shows well, looks up to date and well maintained will fetch a higher price and sell quicker than it’s un-staged counterpart.
