Staging Helps Homes Feel Move-In Ready
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 82% of buyers’ agents say that it’s easier to visualize the property as a future home. It also ensures that the dollar value offered increases with staged homes.
Potential homebuyers are swayed by their first-impression and prefer thoughtfully furnished homes to help them visualize the space as their own. A buyer wants to be able to imagine having a family in the home or a place for family and friends to gather.
Take a look at our staging tips for your home.
Staging Tips for a Thoughtfully Furnished Home
- Adding gentle scents from candles add allure and seem more inviting for walkthroughs.
- Sheer curtains are great for softening windows and letting natural light in.
- Plants (even fake ones) are key for design and texture throughout the home.
- Don’t clutter your shelves, but make sure they aren’t bare either.
- Paint your home in soft colors so potential buyers can imagine their “stuff” in the home without distracting colors.
Creating an atmosphere that not only looks but feels good could have buyers clamoring for your home. Get a better profit out of your sale with little homey touches and use that extra cash to move with ease with professional movers.
