Staging Your Home For A Quick Sale

How can you make your home stand out during the busiest time of year for real estate? By staging it to sell.

Home staging is preparing a residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for top asking price. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming and attractive home.

First impressions are very important in selling your home. That’s why home staging is so essential to make that first impression a good and lasting one for anyone who enters your home or view it on line. Currently 90% of all real estate is seen on line before potential buyers will step in to any home.

Home staging can reduce a listing’s time on the market by one third to half, and could fetch as much as 6% to 20% more than a non- staged.

According to National Association of Realtors

Most important rooms to be staged:

 Rank of Importance: Room

1 Living Room

2 Kitchen

3 Master Bedroom

4 Dining Room

5 Bathroom

6 Children’s Bedroom

7 Guest Bedroom

Home staging is not a major remodeling project at all. In many cases it involves just rearranging furniture, decluttering, and cleaning.  Priority is space planning.  This is important because you want to show the scale of the room, function of the space, and help the future owner to visualize them self-living there. Remember the goal is to sell the home.
