For sellers who are looking to get their home off the market quickly, staging can be a key element in expediting the process. Staging a home with appealing furniture and accessories can add value to a listing. As a seller, there are an abundance of moving parts to keep track of. Buyers have a preconceived idea of what they want in a home before they start the shopping process. If a home is staged, it becomes easier to recognize that a property meets their expectations. When a home isn’t staged, buyer’s may not see the potential of a space and lose interest.
Staging is all about emphasizing a home’s value. Even if at present the property isn’t living up to its potential, staging can help add value to the space and create more interest among buyers. Half the battle of selling a home is getting buyers through the door. Having photos of a staged home on the listing can help overcome that obstacle.
Proper staging can increase the value of a home, and possibly help a seller get a higher offer on a property. With a buyer able to visualize the potential value of a listing, they are more likely to agree to a higher asking price than in an un-staged home.
Overall, staging is a valuable tool that can help buyers evaluate whether they can see themselves in a property and what the potential for the space is. And it can be a lot more productive than expecting buyers to do the heavy mental lifting themselves.
