Do I really need to stage my home?
As we’ve discussed in our previous blogs, you don’t have to stage your home, but it definitely helps to speed up the selling process. Staging your home allows you to arrange it in such a way that other prospective buyers can view your home’s full potential, allowing them to visualize themselves living there. If those looking to buy your home can see themselves making a life in your house, then the chances of your home selling will increase.
Can I stage my home myself?
One of the reasons that we recommend that a professional stage your home is because, in many cases, it is difficult for the current homeowner to be objective. Professionals are trained to view your house as a prospective buyer and stage it accordingly. This may mean moving some furniture around to create a more open space, adding new pieces of furniture. As we mentioned, staging your home is meant to bring out the best features of your house to attract more buyers.
Can vacant homes sell without staging?
Many people believe that selling a vacant home will help the property sell faster because it gives it a larger appearance. However, vacant homes lack the “homey” feeling that many prospective buyers are looking for. In some cases, a home without any sort of furniture gives the property a sterile appearance that some potential buyers may not like. Staging your home will give potential buyers a way to visualize how furniture will work in the space.
Should I try selling my home before I have it staged?
Those who are looking to buy a house typically start their search on the internet before they go through a real estate agent. For this reason, it’s important that the photos of your home make a statement. It’s hard to judge a space from a photograph, especially if that space is empty. Staging your home before you have photos taken will give potential online buyers a better idea of the space in your house.
If my house has been on the market for a while, is it too late to stage?
The earlier you stage your home the better, but the truth of the matter is that it is never too late to stage your home. In fact, many homeowners decide to stage their homes because they have been sitting on the market for months with little to no interest. Staging your home can only improve its appeal to potential buyers.
Staging your home can help your home appeal to more buyers and sell quicker. At Grasons Co Estate Sale Services, we want to do everything we can to help your selling and moving experience be as easy and pain-free as possible. To learn more about our estate sale services, contact Grasons today!
