You are selling your or your client’s home. This is an exciting step, especially considering how hot the housing market is right now. You can hope for it to sell quickly for at least your asking price; But what if you could expect even more from selling your property?
The wonderful thing about the current market is that there are more buyers than houses. However, even in this hot market, homes should be staged because the problem with the current market is that there are more buyers than houses. Why is this a problem? Because buyers are going to want to see as many houses/properties as possible and will most likely put offers on several of them. They hope multiple offers will help them get a house. But staging creates that emotional connection that’ll cause the buyer to fight hard for that specific property. Which is exactly what you want!
When a property is vacant, a buyer sees a space; when a property is staged, a buyersees a home. First impressions are EVERYTHING and walking into a staged property makes people feel invited, welcome, and comfortable. Buyers will then carry these feelings with them while seeing the rest of the property, influencing their perception of it in a positive way. Staging also creates a visual in which buyers can picture themselves living in the space, helping them resonate with that space and want to make it their own.
Because of these mental and emotional connections, buyers are more likely to put in higher offers in order to get your property. Getting top dollar provides you with a good return on your investment of the property and helps you financially as you move forward. Not to mention the good feeling it gives you knowing that you owned something of high value.
Staging has shown to increase the amount buyers will offer on a property, even in the already hot market! But don’t take my word for it. Check out these statistics below!
