A quick sale and the potential for a higher selling price are the key incentives to stage your home before entering the market.
Other benefits include:
Most home buyers will start their search online, this means the first impression they get of your home are the posted pictures online. The images will sway buyers whether or not they even physically view your property and therefore can make or break a sale.
Depersonalising your home and neutralising the space allows a broader range of buyers to visualise themselves living there.
A well-dressed house can be the reason a buyer will choose you property over another especially if similar properties are available on market.
Buyers are looking for the true condition of a house, a properly staged house will give buyers the impression of a well-maintained home.
Home staging will help create the illusion of maximum space in a home. It can also be helpful in enabling potential buyers to visualise how to use any awkward spaces.
Staging your house prior to sale enables you to justify the asking price. Buyers will be looking for repairs and items to be replaced then use that against you in negotiations. If the house is effectively ready to move into, you are more likely to achieve the desired sale price.
Home staging taps into a buyer’s psychology with the same concept of as packaging a product to make it more appealing. Capturing the emotion of buyers is key when they are making one of the biggest purchases of their lifetime.
There is never a second chance to make a first impression so make sure your house gives the right impression first time.
