Once you’ve decided to sell your home, you’ll have to determine whether you want to stage it as well. Many sellers avoid it since it requires an upfront investment. However, the time you put into it is worthwhile. Professional staging before selling property has been proven to help you sell more quickly and for more money.
A Quick Guide to Staging
What It Involves
When selling property and staging your home, you’ll need to declutter and clean it. After removing all non-essential personal items, you’ll add some décor and attractive furniture. When done properly, staging will highlight the best features of the home while minimizing the less desirable ones.
Decluttering will make the home look larger; too many items in the closets or on the shelves will give the impression that the property doesn’t have enough storage space. Cleaning the house will also improve its look and attract buyers. Depersonalizing the home makes it easy for the buyer to picture themselves living there, creating an emotional connection with the property.
How You’ll Benefit
By making a home more desirable and helping to establish an emotional connection for buyers, staging can help sell properties more quickly and for more money. For example, The National Association of Realtors® found that most agents agree that staging increases the sale value by up to 10% of the sales price. 77% of agents said that staging a home made it easier for their buyers to visualize the property as a future home. They also reported that staging decreased the time properties were on the market, with 39% of them stating that it decreased it significantly.
