Staging your home for property listings involves the removal of personal furnishings that may cause the home to look crowded or distracting, and replacing or rearranging items to enhance the room’s look.
Home staging has now become a selling tool that many vendors use. It allows your home to stand out from the competition and showcase its assets to its best ability. Although home staging is often about showing your home in the best light possible, it also helps your potential buyer imagine themselves in the home. Many buyers want to see how the space really looks, how it lives.
These days, home buyers spend a good deal of time researching properties to identify what they want and how the competition looks. Since most potential buyers will see your home online first, it is important that your house looks good in photographs.
If you have a completely vacant home and you want to stage the entire house, prices can range from $1500 to $10000 depending on the type of home you have, the number of rooms you want staged and the type of work to be done. Work can include the removal and replacement of furniture. Or it can be as simple as rearranging existing furniture, and adding additional items to the display. A home stager provides initial consultations, which can then be followed up by any level of work required.
To be successful, ensure that your house interests as many people as possible. Creating a positive first impression is crucial, and staging your home is a helpful way to highlight your home’s best features so that it stands out in the market. This doesn’t mean that you must stage every room – just the main living areas, master bedroom and the bathroom is enough.
A good home stager knows exactly how to enhance your home. Preparing your home for sale can help you sell your house quickly at your asking price, without needing to decrease the price to make the sale. However, keep in mind that staging isn’t always essential, especially if your home is in a popular area where listings don’t last long.
