The Importance of Home Staging.

home staging

Selling your home can be an emotional time. You may be selling a house that’s been in your family for decades or a house you spent years fixing up. You may not want to sell, but need to due to life changes.

Emotions and home selling go hand in hand. But keep in mind, it’s also a business transaction; one of the biggest in your life.  You’re selling an item another person wants to buy; and it’s expensive.

Compare it to visiting a car dealership.  Admit it, you’re automatically drawn to the new, shiny cars with clean, uncluttered interiors. You’ll most likely test drive one and may even figure out a way to move forward with the purchase.

Well, why not give your house the same type of service? Make your house clean, shiny and uncluttered to attract buyers. Check out a recent blog I wrote about picking paint color and why color matters. Granted, a house is larger than a car. It’s a much bigger job to clean and declutter. But you need to make it as desirable as possible to get the best price and the fastest sale. And that’s where home staging can help.

According to the International Association of Home Staging Professionals, homes staged by professionals can sell 95% faster than non-staged homes. The selling price can also be increased by thousands.

The cost of a professional home stager varies according to location and services. For example, a consultation only will be less expensive than having your entire house staged by a professional. You can decide what you can afford and what you’re able and willing to do on your own.

Home stagers can also help relieve stress from what can be a stressful time. By letting someone else help with making your house look resistible, you can focus on packing and other details involved with moving.
