Showcasing your property’s potential and what it could be, is done by creating stylish, welcoming spaces that don’t occur when a home is empty or cluttered. By adding key pieces of art, furniture, and lighting, buyers can envision their future lives.
Did you know? According to the National Association of Realtors, “82% of buyer’s agents credit home staging as making it easier for buyers to see themselves living in that home.”
Whether you love or hate the home you’re selling, you are probably unable to be objective when making certain decisions. Working with a home stager brings in a new set of objective eyes that will help you push past your feelings.
Here’s what Home Stagers see that homeowners often overlook:
(1) Your home may have a smell. Let’s face it, first impressions matter. And that first sniff inside your house can be a make-it-or-break-it moment. Home stagers can help pick out that perfect scent (nothing too strong) to help buyers breathe easily.
(2) Your home may be too dark. Sure, you love the ambiance, but buyers want to see what they’re buying. Home stagers can help by adding lighting, opening curtains, and painting the interior a consistent light color.
(3) Your home may be too personalized. Taking down family photos can help keep your family’s privacy and safety. It’s never a good idea to have pictures of the children online next to their address.
(4) Your home may have valuables all over. Most people looking at your home are potential buyers. But you never know when someone with bad intentions may take a tour of your personal space. Pack up items that can be easy to carry out…think, jewelry, valuable art pieces, and silverware.
When it comes down to it, the most significant benefits of hiring a home stager come down to saving time and making money. In this competitive market, home stagers can help give your home what it needs to stand out ¾in the best way possible.
