WHY STAGING IS A MUST IN TODAY'S REAL ESTATE CLIMATE!
When I purchased my first home in 1976, I looked at this adventure to be a “work in progress.” It wasn’t furnished, decorated, or updated to my taste. I loved the neighborhood and the yard. I loved the brick wall in the kitchen and the fireplace in the living room and the fact that the master bedroom had its own bath.
In today’s fast paced lifestyle, that way of looking at a home is rare. Buyers want to see a home that fits their taste and design. If the house is cluttered with too much furniture, buyers may visualize the rooms smaller than they area. Even if there are floor plans. It’s all about visualization. If the colors aren’t conducive to today’s color palette, or if the dining room chandelier is not what is popular today, it’s a “turn-off.”
Investing in staging will bring a quicker sale for more money. This is one area where investing money to sell your home will pay you back that amount and more. The steps to prepare the house are simple and painless.
Just remember – Once you decide to sell your house, for whatever your reason, this property no longer is your “home.” It becomes a neutral palette so that your future buyer can envision themselves moving right in and living there.
