Six reasons to stage before selling

Six reasons to stage before selling

If you are looking to achieve the highest possible return for your property and a quick sale, then home staging may be the answer. 

Preparing your home for sale can have a positive impact on prospective buyers’ perceptions of the property and home staging is just one more tool that can be used to accomplish this. To achieve the best possible outcome when selling, it is important to ensure that your home appeals to the highest number of potential buyers in the market. Often property professionals will use home staging as a marketing tool to highlight the home’s prime selling features. At its core, home staging is preparing the home to be listed by using methods that improve the property’s appeal by transforming it into an attractive and welcoming space.

Fine & Country Interior Design reveal six reasons to consider staging your property before marketing for sale.

The property is empty or has some empty rooms

Potential buyers often lack the vision to imagine how their furniture will fit in a potential new home. Home stagers will maximise the impact of each space, highlighting key features and demonstrating the lifestyle the property can offer.

 

Décor is tired or you have patterned carpets

Many of today’s buyers are looking for a ‘turn-key’ home and are willing to pay more for this. The last thing they want is to buy a house with a long list of jobs that need immediate attention. Home stagers will have a team of contractors who can act quickly to help.

 

You have a lot of clutter

Home stagers will help you tackle the clutter and make recommendations on what pieces can be used for the staging and what pieces should be packed away ready for your move, or to charity shops.  

 

The property is on a busy road or next to a trainline

Some factors are beyond your control, but staging will help potential buyers to see past obvious flaws and fall in love with the house anyway. 

 

It will create an impressive online presence

Most people begin the buying process online, so it is important that your house has a visual advantage over the competition. 

 

It helps buyers imagine themselves in the house

Experienced home stagers know how to create an aspirational lifestyle and to capture the imagination of a potential buyer.
