Staging Properties to Sell
Property Staging Concierge
When selling your home, you have to convince buyers to believe in more than the property itself. Details like square footage or number of bathrooms might be on a buyer’s checklist, but these details can’t shine if you never capture the buyer’s imagination. Potential buyers need the chance to dream about how life in your house might look and feel for them.
The best way to get into a buyer’s head is great home staging. If your house makes the right impression in photos and viewings, there’s a chance to set yourself up for a quick sale.
Pack Away Clutter
Ideally, you want a staged home to look livable, but not lived-in. The best way to do this is to pack up as much of your stuff as possible. This cuts down on clutter and makes the space look less like it’s already occupied. It may seem like a silly step to take—after all, surely buyers understand people often sell homes they currently live in—but it can make a big difference. In fact, too many of your personal belongings, like distinctive decorations, can kill a buyer’s interest in your home. Aim for a look that is classic and neutral so house hunters’ imaginations can run wild!
The most important part of making updates to your home is ensuring that they’re as classic and neutral as possible. Everyone has their own sense of style, which can wind up hurting you when you’re selling a house. If your unique flair clashes with a buyer’s, that might be all they think about when they’re viewing your home. It all comes back to that imagination factor; it’s harder to project your image of a house onto a house that already has a strong image of its own.
Improve the First Impression
When neutralizing the paint isn’t possible, professional staging is the next best option to distract buyers from the elephant in the room from their eyes. Remember, you want to help the potential buyer see themselves living in your home in the way they would.
Ultimately, anything you do that makes your house look like the kind of space anyone could live in will make a big difference. You want it to be clean, bright, and appealing so that buyers will be interested, and simple enough that they can picture themselves there. Get them dreaming about your home, and they’re much more likely to make an offer.
