You may have done everything you can to put the finishing touches on your house to get it to sell. If it is still not making a dent in the market then it is time to call in a professional stager. They can help pull your home together. Keep the following things in mind if you’re still deciding to make that call.
Your Home Will Be More Cohesive
A home stager is specifically educated to make your home look as inviting as possible. Some are certified as Accredited Staging Professionals. That advanced level of training ensures that no detail is left behind. The resulting cohesion guides buyers throughout your home and invites them to stay. Buyers then begin to envision themselves in your home. The best part is that you don’t always have to rent extra furniture or artwork. Stagers work with your existing pieces to show them off in their best light. That enhances the lived-in yet professional atmosphere.
It Creates a Renovation To-Do List
It’s not all about fake flowers or the smell of fresh-baked cookies. Home stagers actually prepare a detailed consultation for you. They might spend as long as five hours examining your home to check for what makes buyers skittish. This consultation results in a written report. In the report you’ll find recommendations like cleaning, decluttering, and even landscaping advice. That takes the headache out of wondering what to focus on first.
You’ll Get More Bang for Your Buck
“All right,” you may be thinking. “Home staging sounds expensive and I’m just trying to sell my home with as few strings attached as possible.” Putting in the money for a home stager is worth it. The National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Staging reports that your return on investment could be as high as 20%. Buyers can tell you put the extra effort in and are willing to pay you for it.
It Maximizes Your Space
A home stager can make a home of any size feel like Goldilocks to a buyer. They can teach you how to arrange furniture to fill a small home without clutter or make a large space feel cozy and inviting. It helps to have that outside perspective and guidance before you list your home.
Selling a home can be a transition period but it needn’t be a stressful one. Staging it just makes your house ready for a new family to enjoy just as much as you have.
