Why Should You Stage Your Home to Sell?

First impressions make a huge impact, especially when selling your home!  It won’t be enough to just put out a for-sale sign and wait for potential buyers. One way that homeowners can sell their homes more speedily and potentially for more money is by home staging.  Basically, staging consists of arranging your home’s décor and furniture in such a way as to make the home have more of an appeal to prospective buyers OR hiring and renting new décor to create the perfect ambiance for your unique space.

In some cases, home staging can be a relatively simple and inexpensive undertaking. You may be comfortable with just cleaning up your home and removing all day-to-day items. On the other hand, you may want to consider investing a more substantial amount of time and money into your home staging project. The main benefit of investing in landscaping, painting and new furniture is that a potential buyer will come away from a visit to your home with a better idea of how his or her new home will look.

Home staging has been around since the 1970s and the general idea is to depersonalize your home so that a prospective buyer will be able to imagine him or herself living in it. By removing clutter and personal photos, you’ll be able to increase your home’s appeal. Another tip is to choose neutral colors for your home’s carpet and paint. If it’s within your budget, you’ll also want to think about buying new appliances or updating small features like hardware, faucets, or lighting.
