Tips On Staging Your Home For Sale

By Edited Dec 2, 2016 0 2

If you've been considering moving and selling your home, or selling an investment home, you should research home staging ideas and implement them. There are many advantages to taking the time to stage your home to make it more attractive to buyers.

Keep it simple

One of the greatest benefits of staging your home is that it will sell more quickly. Sellers are always anxious to move their homes more quickly. By staging your home, you help to insure that it will not sit on the market, helping you to avoid price reductions. Research shows that homes which are stages will sell almost forty percent faster than other homes that have not been staged.

Another benefit of staging your home is that it will sell for a higher price. Homes that sit on the market will receive lower offers becuase people begin to wonder if there is something wrong with the house. However, staged homes do not typically sit on the market long enough for this to be an issue. Upon listing, the pictures that can be taken will help the house to sell itself quickly.

A staged exterior also helps to bring people in to walk through the home. First impressions are everything and staging the outside helps to create that vital, positive first impression. Flowers and a manicured yard give the impression that a property is well cared for and this will entice buyers to go in and see more. Great cub appeal with a staged exterior makes people wonder how nice the inside will look and draws them into your house.

Buyers typically decide within seconds of entering a home whether they like it or not. Therefore, you want your home to appeal to the potential buyer's liking. The buyer should never feel rushed, you want your potential buyers to feel at ease in your home and to be willing to take his time and explore it.

It is important you stage the living room and kitchen. Living rooms are the center piece of the home and you will want to show off how fantastic your can be by decorating it and staging it.

Kitchen

Kitchens should receive a great deal of attention, and fruit is a great way to help decorate and make a kitchen more attractive and appealing. It is also important that the house be clean and tidy with everything put away. Buyers are looking for homes that they can move their things into and begin to enjoy, not houses where they will immediately have a check-list of items that require repair.

Real estate agents also prefer showing staged homes, since they are more likely to sell, and this can also create more advertising for you. Agents who enjoy your home and are excited about your home will recommend it to their potential buyers. Staging your house increases the number of agents that will like it themselves. When the agents like your home, they will refer their clients to it and one of them may turn out to be the buyer you are seeking. This additional exposure does not cost you a dime.

It is a simple fact that staged homes sell. They have more viewings, attract more real estate agents and therefore more buyers. Going out of your way to make potential buyers believe that your home is the one he has been seeking for will pay off. While most houses will eventually sell, remember that staged homes sell more quickly and at a higher price. Once the decision is made to sell your home, beging researching staging it so that you can put it on the market with the best possible presentation it can offer.

I'm sorry, but you don't explain what staging is?? What is it? I have been in real estate here in southern Spain but have never heard of that expression.

Stagnetto,

Staging is the process of selecting, designing, adapting to, or modifying the performance space for a play or film. When applied to homes, staging refers to the rearranging, removal or adding of furniture, rugs, window treatments, etc in order to make a living environment more inviting and appealing.

Do you ever use similar techniques in Spain when selling a property?
