5 Reasons Why Staging Works:
1. It Gives Buyers a Blank Canvas:
At its most basic, staging your home makes it more presentable. While it certainly seeks to do more, doing things like painting in a neutral colour, taking down personal items, and generally de-cluttering is a great start. This “blank canvas” in effect forms the foundation of everything home staging does because potential buyers will see your home for its potential – and not its history.
2. It Transforms Your Home:
Home staging, at its heart, can transform a home into any given buyer’s dream property. No matter the market, your home needs to stand out, and focusing on key elements of design – think pieces of furniture, layouts, and small accents that “feel like home” – can make spaces feel more functional and ready-to-buy.
3. It Highlights your Homes Value:
When people tour just about any home, they are there because they want to envision it as their own. Staging helps create that opportunity while showcasing a home as being looked after and cared for by the previous owners.
4. It Leads to a Quicker Sale:
Staged homes are less likely to encounter price reductions, and encourage more competition amongst potential buyers. Not only does your home look better, but it’s put in a better position to sell – and fast.
5. It Appeals to Buyers of All Kinds:
When you use high-end, stylish pieces, as well as a selective design that highlights the best aspects of a home, staging can turn your listing into the dream home for a wide range of buyers. It’s this magic that makes a staged home incredibly personal to a buyer, without feeling too personal and like someone else’s space.
