Home staging is becoming increasingly popular. More and More sellers are realizing they need to transform their homes to avoid spending months on the market and/ or compromising their sale price.
Home staging involves creating a fairytale for the potential buyers. Staged homes look bigger, brighter and more inviting. They have that “wow” factor. It is not about giving your home a fresh coat of paint and doing repairs, it involves organizing, re-arranging, replacing or adding furniture in a way that showcases the use, and the potential, of every room in the best possible way. The goal is to highlight all the great features of a property to attract the widest range of buyers.
People buy a house on emotion. A house that has that “move in now” feel will sell quicker and for a higher price than a house that is dated and requires work. Buyers are busy and will avoid labour-intensive houses. The house will also look better than others on the market, and the negative feedback will be minimized. Buyers will have less reason to negotiate a lower price. Also, because of the updated look, the property will attract more buyers and your chance of finding one will be maximized.
