Putting Your Home On The Market? Stage It First

If you’re getting ready to put your home on the market, you might think all you need to do is get organized and show your home as is.

But if you want to sell your home, you should definitely consider staging.

Home staging, which involves redecorating a property to remove personal effects and make it more appealing to buyers, can have a huge effect on your ability to sell your home. According to the Profile of Home Staging Report from the National Association of Realtors, a whopping 77% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for buyers to visualize a property as their future home.

If you can’t afford to stage your entire home, try staging the rooms that will have the most impact on potential buyers. According to the report, the most important rooms to stage for buyers are the living room (55%), the master bedroom (51%), and the kitchen (41%). And even if you only stage a few rooms in your home, it’s going to give you an edge over the competition. The report indicates that only 25% of sellers pay to have their house professionally staged.

The Takeaway

If you’re serious about selling your home, you should also get serious about staging. Staging helps potential buyers picture themselves living in your home—and the easier it is for potential buyers to picture themselves living in your home, the more likely they are to make an offer.
